If there was one thing you could do, every day for a year, who would you become?
Change is hard. We’re held back by distractions, other people, and often ourselves.
But change isn't impossible. Choose your daily action, and Pavlok will hold you accountable, ensuring lasting success.
“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”
What would you do with just one extra hour of time each day? Would you start a business, explore your creativity, or just have some “me” time? The opportunities are endless. But it’s so easy to hit “snooze” and roll over.
Pavlok: Wake Up lets you set an alarm to gently vibrate and wake you up. But, what if you keep hitting the snooze button? Pavlok can deliver just enough of a “jolt” to get you up and running --- with adrenaline.
Pavlok Productive retrains your deeply ingrained “chronic web surfing” habits. In our trial research, we found that a large number of participants have significant trouble getting work done in the face of temptation (e.g. incoming emails, interesting articles, status updates).
The Pavlok app and wristband track your surfing habits. Using a combination of vibration, sound, and electric shock, the wristband stops distractions in their tracks and keeps you focused on your work.
How much would you get done if you stopped wasting time on social media and constantly checking your email? Pavlok can break the bad habit of opening too many tabs and mindlessly wasting your day.
Do you have any friends who run or lift every day but complain when they miss a day? They aren’t genetic freaks - they simply have developed the habit of exercise. For them, it actually requires willpower to NOT work out. Guess what? With two months of daily activity, you’d feel exactly the same.
This might sound crazy, but it’s been scientifically validated. Pavlok Fit uses a powerful commitment ecosystem to help your form this habit. Choose between hitting the gym (measured by GPS), walking 10,000 steps, or running with Runkeeper. Earn rewards when you succeed to keep you motivated.
But the carrot isn’t enough - sometimes you need the stick. Choose your commitment level, and when you succeed, you’ll earn money. But, if you fail, you’ll have a penalty to your Facebook friends. Either you’ll give them your money --- or they’ll get to shock you.
Habit: Wake Up An Hour Earlier
Now I get up at 7 without pressing the snooze button, do 10 mins of mindfulness meditation, read a few pages of a philosophical or poetry book, and write. These are all habits now!
Habit: Write 1000 words each day
I’ve been able to write 1,000 words per day consistently. No matter how hard I've tried in the past, it was impossible. But the program really works. The best part is, now the habit doesn't feel like a chore...it's just part of my life.
Habit: Sleep at the same time each night.
I have been brushing my teeth 15 minutes before my desired sleeping time as my habit trigger. This encourages me to finish the process and go to sleep. Now, not only am I getting up earlier, but I am also sleeping more and getting better rest!
