Pavlok’s most powerful use case is to break bad habits. To break a habit, you should force yourself to perform that action repeatedly for at least 5 days (but ideally 10).
Set aside 5 minutes each day and force yourself to do the action – even when you feel like stopping!
If you push through for the full 5-10 days, the habit will usually stay broken.
The 3 Step Process
1. Wear your Pavlok throughout the day. Notice when you start smoking.
2. Zap yourself when you notice you are having the impulse. Add a few zaps while you smoke. Record your urges on the app to help see your progress.
3. Do this as often as you can to keep the smoking low. If it starts to increase, add more zaps.
After 5 days, check in with yourself and determine your progress. You should notice a significant reduction or elimination of the habit. Continue using this process until you feel an aversion towards the habit – and you no longer desire to smoke.
