The Big List Of Bad Habits

• Feb 21 2015


We all have bad habits that are ruining our lives…


So we invented Pavlok — the very first wearable device that helps you break bad habits at their source.

Pavlok uses proven psychological concepts to create a Pavlovian association (get it?) to the habit you want to break.

Simply put Pavlok on, download the app, and follow the five day program. For five days, do the habit you want to quit. Pavlok will administer an electric stimulus as you do the bad habit, and a vibration as you do good habits. 

The vibrations and electric stimuli create an association that trains your brain to stop liking the habit — in as little as five days. Your brain creates an aversion to the bad habits — and a liking for good ones.

For decades, this technology was only available in scientific labs — for a very high price.

But now, for the first time ever — you can get this technology, shipped directly to your door.

P.S: Pavlok will never judge you. Some habits are objectively bad, e.g., smoking kills you. Other habits like “sleeping in” depend on context, like if it’s making you late for work. And still other habits aren’t really either good or bad, it’s just personal preference. Also, if you have a condition that puts you or anyone at risk of serious harm you must see a medical professional immediately and you can ask your doctor if Pavlok is right for you.
