The device comprises housing for an energy source and an electronic circuit connected to an energy source affixed within the housing.

The alerting means notifies the individual a determined number of times over a given period in an apparent random manner at a frequency of 10-12 Hz.

(DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION)

According B. F. Skinner (Skinner, B. F. (1953). Science and Human Behavior. New York: The Free Press), a response followed by a reinforcer, such as a reward, is strengthened and more likely to occur again. Because the user of this device is self-motivated, the “reward” in this case is intrinsic rather than external, the intrinsic reward being the thoughts or thought patterns for example, positive feelings generated by the user as a result of his actions.
