HabitStrap helps you to get motivated and stay on track during 66 days – the time it takes to form new virtuous habits or K.O. bad ones.

Black version available. Various backers asked for a black version, as we reached +1.000€ in funding we will offer the Black color. So you will be able to choose between RED and BLACK. Thx for your support!

 

K.O. bad habits. No mercy.

How it works

1. Choose a good habit.

Write a simple daily action that would immediately improve your life on your HabitStrap. Example : "Eat healthy". Then seal it to your wrist during 66 days.

2. Track your progress instantly.

HabitStrap has 66 units representing 66 days. Each day you complete your desired action, check the bar with any permanent marker and take a deep breath.

3. Celebrate yourself!

66th bar? Congrats! You shaped a new habit. It’s that simple. You are now ready to improve other areas of your life.

66 days. Science backed.

In 2009 Phillippa Lally and colleagues from UCL Epidemiology in London researched 96 people and discovered it takes 66 days to create or break habits.

Always visible

HabitStrap is worse than your mom and cheaper than any coach. It’s always with you, firmly attached, serving as a perpetual visual trigger for your brain.

Simple

No learning curve, no smartphone needed, no battery, no distraction. A simple permanent marker once a day and you are done. Simplicity as its best.

Playful

Once you start, and as your chain grows longer, you will be excited to keep going until the end.

How I came up with the idea? 

I was broke and lonely. My situation seemed hopeless until I heard that we are the sum of our habits. I deducted that mine were bad. The solution? Break the old habits and create good ones like: stop complaining, wake up earlier, keep a gratitude journal, generate ten ideas a day, save money, exercise more, drink less, floss my teeth, write daily, maintain laser sharp focus... The list goes on and on. You know the stuff, right?

The problem?
I sucked at creating positive habits.
I have no willpower, no discipline, and no memory.

So, I tricked myself.

I chained myself to a constant reminder. Like when you are at the hospital. You cannot unplug the perfusion machine or move without it. If you do, you die. HabitStrap is an unbreakable wristband to shape habits. Once attached, you cannot remove it except with a pair of scissors. Do it before the 66 days ends and you will get back to hell. Sort of…

Does it work?

Look, honestly 66 days are not easy. This is a journey with a lot of bumpy roads, some ups and a lot of downs, so you need a robust, trusty and permanently visible companion. HabitStrap is the only effective technique that works not only for me but also for friends, friends of friends, and family. I’m sure it will dramatically improve your life too. Once you successfully complete your first habit, trust me, you will be hooked and excited to improve other areas of your life. It’s an ever-ongoing process.

There is already an app for that...

Let’s face it, your phone is vomiting apps and notifications already. They are stressful and distracting. Apps can provide you with fancy interface and stats, but who cares? No app can beat a single purpose real world object specifically designed for one function. It’s not about fanciness but efficiency.

Thank you for your support!

HabitStrap will dramatically improve your life in 2017!
