Stay on Track with WatchMinder
Do you struggle with staying on task? How about drinking your water or taking your meds? Even the little things like getting up and moving around every hour since I sit all day can be hard to remember. Have you heard about the WatchMinder?
So what is the WatchMinder?
The WatchMinder is a simple wristwatch that can easily be programmed to set up discreet vibrating reminders throughout one’s day. Invented by a child psychologist, the WatchMinder was designed to aid children and adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (AD/HD) and others with special needs in staying focused, managing their time, and modifying their thoughts and behaviors.
How is the WatchMinder different?
Because the WatchMinder was created to discreetly alert the wearer to some type of action or reminder, it doesn’t make noise – It Vibrates! Classrooms and office work places would not be conducive to a timer or beep beep beep every few minutes, the WatchMinder is the perfect solution.
It is easy to program set reminders throughout the day, and can be programmed right on the phone. No need to sync up to your phone or computer. Awesome for children!
The WatchMinder helping those with AD/HD, LD, and Autism
Parents can stop nagging, I mean reminding their children and let the WatchMinder prompt them specific behaviors and actions. By using the WatchMinder, the wearer is able to self monitor and learn to manage their schedules.
I like the reinforcement of positive behaviors that can be schedule. Reminders to “Pay Attention”, “Be Positive”, and “Focus” can be flashed on the screen along with a gentle buzz on the wrist.
How about reminders to participate in class, to copy down or submit homework assignments? Personally, I like the reminder to take my meds as I have to spread them out over the course of the entire day. This watch has helped me stay on track better than anything I have tried.
WatchMinder is great for behavior modification and self training.
Self monitoring whether for TV or video game time or a reminder to go to the bathroom are possible with the WatchMinder.
Using the WatchMinder for rehabilitation
Stroke survivors and caretakers can both benefit from the gentle reminders of the WatchMinder. Need to remember to call in or check on someone? Set a reminder. Need to remember to do perform stretching movements every hour? Set a reminder.
Learning to manage your sugars or need a reminder to monitor your sugar levels throughout the day? Perhaps, you know that you tense up as the day goes on and by the end of the day…you are exhausted. How about a reminder every 45 minutes to take a deep breath and get a glass of water. This gentle reminder could be all you need to have energy at the end of the day.
