Thanks for your comment Jim. Even though the string on the finger and rubber band on the wrist both signify to remember something; the difference with the rubber band/bracelet is that this is always constant every time you wear it. Whereas the string on the finger is to remind you about one thing to do that one day which is why it may not have worked for you. This isn’t an instant fix, in time, you’ll notice the bracelet more often and use it more often than not. Hope this clarification helps and that you’ll be open to giving it a try for 90-days to find out if it works for you.
