Wondering if HabitAware Bracelets Are Worth The Money? The Good, The Bad, The Keen!
I’ve had my HabitAware Bracelets for almost 5 years, I started out with the original ones and upgraded to the new ones about a year and a half ago. When I first purchased my HabitAware bracelets I paid more than $300 for both of them. I’m not going to lie, that’s so much money for me, I’m a mom of five kids, and I don’t have a lot to spare, but I really was at my wits end with my hair-pulling habit and I was desperate for a solution that worked.
I’ve always been someone who if I put my mind to something I can do it (for a little while, sometimes a long while). Any diet I ever invested a lot of money in, paid off for the time that I put into it. The same I feel is true with the HabitAware Bracelets. It wasn’t just some magic pill that I could take, there’s no putting the bracelets on and just magically you don’t pull anymore. That’s not what they are.
If you’re wondering if they’re worth it, my answer is, that they could be. I know that answer sucks so let’s dive into some things to consider. The first is the BIGGIE for me, the cost of the bracelets.
Cost: If you’re going to spend $250-$300 on something, are you going to implement what you need to in order to get the desired results? A lot of people can spend that much money and just toss whatever it is aside if it’s not as easy as pushing a button.
And it’s not as easy as a push button. Someone like me on the other hand, if I spend that kind of money, I’m going to do my best to achieve whatever it is I want from the product or service.
Severity of Habit: HabitAware bracelets are primarily designed to help individuals become more aware of and manage repetitive behaviors or unwanted habits like hair pulling, skin picking, and nail-biting. If your habit is causing significant distress or interfering with your daily life, the potential benefits of using the bracelets to increase awareness and control could be worth the investment.
Previous Efforts: If you’re like me and you’ve already tried various methods to manage your habit without success, HabitAware bracelets could be a good approach. The real-time alerts and increased awareness they offer do make a difference.
Commitment to Change: Like any behavior modification tool, the effectiveness of HabitAware bracelets can also depend on your commitment to change. If you’re willing to actively use the bracelets, respond to the alerts, and work on alternative behaviors, you’re more likely to see positive results.
Alternative Strategies: Consider whether you’ve tried other strategies to manage your habit? HabitAware bracelets can be used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches to enhance their effectiveness.
I use mine with my trichotillomania therapy journal, using both together helped increase my success with the bracelets. I’ve got a whole arsenal of fidget toys and other things that I keep handy to keep my hands busy when I do get the alert on my bracelet.
The simple act of choosing to do something else when I get the alert on my bracelets has been very effective over time.
Product Features: Evaluate the specific features offered by HabitAware bracelets. The new Keen2 has lot to offer, with a step counter and built-in time. Take a look at customization options, the companion app’s usability, and any additional support or resources they provide.
When you buy directly from HabitAware, you are immediately adopted into their Keen family of users and they have a support group, training calls, and weekly Wednesday emails with updates on the product.
Reviews and Testimonials: Hearing about other experiences can give you a better idea of whether the product is effective and worth the investment.
Personal Preferences: HabitAware bracelets are a habit reversal tool, some people might prefer alternative methods of managing habits, such as one-on-one therapy, medications, or behavioral strategies. It’s important to find an approach that aligns with your preferences and needs.
I was looking for something that I could do myself in private without having to see a therapist or take medication. Honestly, there really isn’t any medication out there that can cure Trichotillomania. There are supplements and products that can help though, I believe HabitAware bracelets are one of them.
Ultimately, the decision of whether HabitAware bracelets are worth the money is a personal one. If the concept aligns with your goals and needs, and if you’re willing to invest the time and effort into using them consistently, they might be a valuable tool in your journey to managing unwanted habits.
