This How To Guide is a collection of real users’ stories, explaining in their own words how they used Pavlok to change their behavior. Your experience with Pavlok may vary, and Pavlok makes no guarantees regarding the speed or effectiveness of the behavior change processes outlined in this guide. Note: Please consult your doctor if you have any concerns. The Pavlok At Pavlok, our number one goal is to rid the world of bad habits. The Pavlok unit is the first wearable device that actually changes behavior. The Pavlok harnesses classical conditioning to associate a mild electric stimulus with your bad habit, reducing temptation and creating an aversion towards the habit.

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 Pavlok app includes courses and training sessions to walk you through breaking individual bad habits such as snacking, smoking and nail-biting. Download the app at http://pavlok.com/app. Breaking a Bad Habit Determine the bad habit that you want to eliminate. Set aside 5 minutes a day for 5-10 days. For those 5 minutes, force yourself to do the bad habit or undesired actions. Zap yourself at each step of the habit. Force yourself to complete the full 5 minutes and at least 5 days, even if you think the habit is already broken. 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 do it. 5 How to use Pavlok to Reduce Cravings What if you don’t want to eliminate a habit, but instead want to reduce it? Maybe you want to eat a little less sugar, or cut down on alcohol. Wear the Pavlok on your wrist and only zap if you start to do the undesired action. As you do the habit, zap yourself at each step. The more often you zap yourself while doing it, the faster you’ll see the cravings reduce. *The Pavlok app includes audio training sessions and productivity tools to help you reduce your cravings and break your bad habits. Download at http://pavlok.com/app. Reduce Cravings Wear your Pavlok throughout the day. Notice when you start to do the undesired action. Zap yourself when you notice that you are having the impulse. Add a few zaps while you do the undesired action. Do this as often as you can to keep the craving low. If it starts to increase, add more zaps. If you feel like the craving is dropping too fast, reduce the frequency of your zap. How to use Pavlok to Wake Up On Time When we wake up, most of us are at our groggiest. It’s often easier to repeatedly hit the snooze button over and over (and over) until we finally have to get out of bed. One of the reasons this happens is because we get woken up in the middle of deep sleep. At that stage, it’s incredibly difficult to control ourselves or our actions. Pavlok helps kick you out of that state with adrenaline. Quit Snoozing Before going to sleep, set your alarm clock (either with a standard alarm clock, or with the . 1 Pavlok App). Wear your Pavlok to bed. When you wake up, don’t hit the snooze button until you zap yourself. Press the button on the Pavlok . 2 device 2 or 3 times. The zap will kick you out of automatic mode. You can also set the Pavlok Alarm to automatically zap you! . 3 Jump out of bed – with adrenaline. Turn off your alarm clock and start your morning routine. One of the simplest ways to use Pavlok to wake up is to zap yourself once you hear your alarm. Sleep while wearing Pavlok, or place the device on top of your phone/ alarm clock when you sleep. “If I’m still in bed, instead of hitting the snooze button after I hear my alarm goes off, I hit the Pavlok and that is enough to jolt me awake” Rachman B., Pavlok User 7 How to use Pavlok to Stop Procrastinating We never plan to procrastinate. We simply find ourselves doing it. Why? Because we slip out of a state of awareness, and into automatic mode. Use Pavlok to bring yourself back into a state of awareness and focus. When you catch yourself procrastinating, simply press the zap button. Then ask yourself what you should be doing instead. *Try out the Pavlok Productivity Extension. You can set your device to automatically trigger stimuli after wasting time or navigating to unproductive websites. Download it at http://pavlok.com/productivity. Get Productive Whenever you realize you are being unproductive, press the zap button. Focus on the zap and ask yourself: ‘What would a productive version of me be doing right now?’ Get to work and do it. We recommend only working on a single task at a time – set a timer for 15-25 minutes, and don’t switch tasks until the timer is complete. 9 Smoking Use the following Pavlok features to help you with reducing/breaking your smoking habit: AutoZapper Automatic zaps at specified intervals Hand Detect Activates simulus when hand is raised Enable Hand Detect in the Pavlok App. Double Tap to change zap strength Zap during bad habit.

Fast forward 7 years, and Marty had become an unhealthy pack-a-day smoker who hated his habit. “I tried reducing at first, but that never worked. I wasn’t really strict about it, and since I was smoking every day anyways I’d say forget it, I’m just going to keep smoking. Then I’d say next time I try to quit I’m going to go cold turkey, but I just kept going back to it.” Then he tried Pavlok. “It made me conscious every time I smoked and so I’d make an effort to put it down. And I didn’t have to quit cold turkey. If my cravings got really bad I was free to smoke.” In three weeks Marty went from smoking a pack a day to completely quitting smoking. And he is already enjoying the benefits. “I started running again. And I work out almost every day. I’m more willing to be active because my lungs are clear and I’m not coughing up a storm.” Read the full case study: pavlok.com/marty 11 Pavlok Case Study: Carlos Smoked For 15 Years & Quit In 5 Days Carlos had tried to smoking over 20 times. quit And he had a lot of reasons to quit. He was feeling the health effects, his wife continually complained about the cloud of smoke following him around, and it was costing him a lot of money. Then Carlos tried Pavlok and instead of zapping himself he asked family members to zap him via the Pavlok App. After 5 days with Pavlok, he finally quit smoking. Now his health is improving, his wife is happy, and he saved $150 in the first month. It’s been almost two years and Carlos is still smoke free (and has saved several thousand dollars as well). Read the full case study: pavlok.com/carlos Smoking “I tried Chantix, I tried the gum, the patch, and I even tried hypnosis. Nothing worked.” 13 Sometimes, we form habits that involve a part of our body—hair pulling, nail biting, skin picking, etc. Use the following features to help break these habits: Behavior Specific Course Day to day lessons AutoZapper Automatic zaps at specified intervals Hand Detect Activates simulus when hand is raised Enable Hand Detect in the Pavlok App. Double Tap to change zap strength Zap during bad habit.

I bought that nail polish that tastes disgusting and you put it on and you bite it, it didn’t work. I tried getting artificial nails and I bit them off. I was not finding the solution. So, I decided to try Pavlok and see if that would help me.” In just two days, Pavlok helped her stop. “Within 2 days, I have already noticed that I am so much more aware of myself biting my nails, where it used to be very subconscious. Now, I am very aware, and I catch myself before I do it.” In summer 2015, Nagina had her nails done for the first time in over a decade. She credits Pavlok with helping her to finally achieve the nails she had always desired.

It’s a very difficult habit to control because I do it so unconsciously.” David was so excited to try the Pavlok that he became one of the prototype users. He’s been helping Pavlok perfect the product while working to break his own bad habits. “There is nothing quite like the first zap that you receive. When I opened the envelope, of course I was very excited. It’s not that the zap is intense, you just don’t know what to expect and it surprises you.” Results came fast. “The first day that I did it, I found that I was already much more aware of the issue. After 5 days, I would estimate that I reduced my teeth grinding by 80%. That’s huge for me.” Read the full case study: pavlok.com/david Uncontrollable Body-Based Behaviors Pavlok Case Study: David Reduced His Teeth Grinding By 80% 17 Unhealthy Eating Pavlok can help reduce sugar cravings, following a diet, and other eating habits by using the following features: Double Tap to change zap strength Zap during bad habit.

My clothes were barely fitting, and beyond appearance I felt like I wasn’t living up to my potential and that my energy wasn’t as high as it could have been.” She could make it a day or two, but sugar always crept back into her life. Then she tried Pavlok. “What I noticed was if I had a craving for sugar, and I had a lot of cravings during the first week… I didn’t want to zap myself so I wouldn’t eat the food in the first place. That turned into a week, and then two weeks and now I’m about three weeks in and I haven’t had any refined sugar… I feel like I’m back in control of my relationship with food.” And since Tasha had such great results with quitting sugar, she started using Pavlok to build a good habit: getting to the gym 5 days per week. “Obviously it feels incredible.” Read the full case study: pavlok.com/tasha 19 Ari, the founder of Less Doing, More Living was suffering from Crohn’s disease. He realized his unhealthy habit of snacking and excessive sugar consumption were causing his Crohn’s disease to become progressively worse. “I was in constant pain from the chronic inflammation.” As it is for many people, snacking was a simple and comforting response to stress for Ari. “I don’t have an addictive personality…at all – but the one thing I could never overcome was snacking and sugar. When I ate unhealthy I simply felt worse.” On his first day with Pavlok Ari reported he stopped snacking and hasn’t since. “This trained my brain on a more conscious level to not want to do something. I’ve tried many things, but Pavlok is the only product which has given me results.” Now Ari says his Crohn’s disease is under control and he feels healthy again now that he has removed sugar from his life.

For many use cases, zapping yourself manually is a better way to quit a habit. However, we do have integrations that can make the Pavlok automated. See the “Other Behaviors” page in this booklet for details. Why is the Pavlok better than using a rubber band? Using a rubber band can leave bruises. The Pavlok doesn’t. Studies show that an electrical stimulus is more effective than a rubber band. We performed a course with 1200 people who tried to quit a habit. About 25% who used a rubber band succeeded and about 55-60% who used Pavlok succeeded. Is it safe? How uncomfortable is the zap? The zap is designed so that it is enough to be uncomfortable but not so strong that it hurts (and nowhere near dangerous). The Pavlok is CE certified and over 10,000 Pavlok users have proven it safe and effective. How long does the battery last? The battery life ranges from 3-5 days and charges through micro USB. What is the band made out of? The wristband is silicone. The body of the Pavlok module is ABS plastic, and the end caps are white bronze-plated zinc. Can I take it through airport security? Yes. No Zap: Press down firmly, and then immediately release the top of the Pavlok module. If there is no zap, no LED’s, and no short vibration, you typically need to charge it. Remove the Pavlok module from the wristband, and charge it with the supplied Micro-USB cable. If you get no zap but do see lights and feel a short vibration, try changing the zap strength through the app. If your Pavlok is completely unresponsive, leave off the charger for 12 hours and plug in again, repeating the steps above. Zap Strength: If you don’t think the zap is very strong, there are a few things you can try: 1) Make sure your Pavlok is charged. When it is low on battery, the zap strength is reduced. 2) Change the zap strength through the app. 3) Increase the number of zaps with Multi-Zap. 4) Ensure the wristband is secure so that the Pavlok touches your skin. 5) Move the Pavlok to the other side so that it touches the inside of your arm. Device Not Connecting to App: If you are trying to connect the Pavlok to the app but are having issues pairing or getting the buttons on the Remote to work, attempt the following, then try to reconnect. 1. Forget Device from Phone: Go to your phone’s Bluetooth® settings. If your Pavlok is listed under “My Devices”/”Paired Devices”, then tap on it and choose to Forget Device/Unpair. 2. Turn your phone’s Bluetooth® off and then on. 3. Hard Reset the Pavlok: Remove the module from the wristband. Place on flat surface. Press and hold the button for about 10 seconds until you see red blink followed by faint yellow flicker.
