You don't blame circumstances, conditions, or your conditioning for your behavior. You choose your response to any situation and any person. In this paper I have been asked to analyze one of my habits. I have many habits, some of the habits I have are somewhat unhelpful and some are not so.   Some habits would shock people nothing illegal of course and some would make people laugh. The one habit that I have and that I’ve decided to formally discuss and what caused me to initiate this habit, and that is my habit of smoking cigars (Black and mild). It all started when I was 14 years old. I was with one of my cousins who did smoke, and being the aroused by the smell I asked if I can have one. At first he kind of hesitated to give me one, but I keep pushing him to let me try and he gave in and from that moment I’ve been hooked. Over the years it’s become a habit that I’ve tried to overcome and let go but it has not been an easy road to accomplish. Regarding me having any role models that would influence me, I’ve seen numerous family members smoke around me but they have never tried to ever offer me any and at that time never really considered trying cigars. The excuse I’ve used to continue...

...Habits Lynette Huff PSY/250 October 28, 2013 David Dakroub Habits Habits are an acquired pattern of behavior that has become almost involuntary as a result of frequent repetition (The Free Dictionary, 2013). Habits are something that people do like either biting nails, smoking, doing drugs, or washing their hands a number of times. Some habits can be good and others can bad. Most people find it hard to break bad habits and take on good habits. The whole world can have bad and good habits those habits are what help make up our personality. Sometimes our habits are how some people perceive us and maybe even the way they treat us. We will look into how these habits can perceive us and how we can use them or not use them. When analyzing one of our habits it would be a bad one because we have a tendency to bite our nails. Nail biting started for us when we were little, why it started could not tell anyone why or how. Looking back we do not remember ever having a role model except maybe other little children that did the same thing. Do remember our mother telling us to stop biting our nails that is was bad. Now that we are older we have stopped biting our nails in some ways, the only time we bit our nails now is when we are stressed. We guess we started biting our nails again when we decided to quit smoking, which is another bad habit we picked up along the way. We started smoking and quit biting our nails when our father pasted away and we had to step up to the plate...

Bad Habits

..."Good habits are hard to develop but easy to live with" and "Bad habits are easy to develop but hard to live with", according to Brian Tracey, a well-known motivational teacher. You may recognize that to successfully manage habit changes, breaking bad habits may be required in order to develop new ones. Breaking bad habits takes at least 21 days. Of course, in difficult cases, it can take as long as a year. Here's an example of the process of how to change an unhealthy habit to a healthy habit. Suppose you've decided that coffee is not good for you and right now, you drink coffee with sugar daily. The new habit you would like to institute is to drink herbal tea without sugar. At first, it may be challenging to break the bad habit of drinking coffee. You will have to use self-discipline for the first few weeks but gradually it will get easier. Once you are able to change the old habit to a new healthier one, it will serve you very well. Habits are remarkable because they don't require thinking. You just "do it" for years until you find yourself changing the habit again. There are 5 easy steps for changing habits .The first step is You must become aware of your habits. What is this habit exactly? How is this bad habit or group of bad habits affecting you? How is this habit affecting others? For example, smoking often has negative effects on others as well as on you .Secondly as someone with a health problem, you must decide that breaking bad habits through a conscious effort......

In this research study, focus is on the effect of study habits in the academic performance of students, specifically the second year BS Accountancy students. BS Accountancy is one of the toughest courses in the world. It is extremely specialized: the curriculum requires study sufficient for professional practice (often at the major-level) in financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, and taxation. The curriculum also includes general coverage of management and business mathematics, and intermediate coursework in business law and economics. Thus, in order for them to fulfill the requirement of the curriculum, accounting students needs to have a proper time management and study habits. Study habits, defined as the regular tendencies and practices that one depicts during the process of gaining information through learning. Studying itself was not that easy. It requires strategies and techniques to have a very effective study habits. There is no required study habit for everyone; it will always depend on your lifestyle, on your capabilities and on the personality of a person who is going to study.

Study Habits

...How can we improve our study habits? Everyone has the experience students, starting from kindergarten to high school or university. For most people, it’s not hard to become a student, but becoming a student who has great grades is not easy. You must want to know what causing this difference. The answer is good study habits. In the process of schooling, many students actually don’t have good study habits. If you want to have a good score, the good study habits can help you more likely to achieve your goals. Improving our study habits can occur in three stages: developing learning habits, using four study skills and understanding the benefits of good habits. First of all, students should develop a way of learning. In fact, most of them don't realize that they don’t have completed good study habits. The article “Why ‘good’ study habit may be bad for learning” (2010) talks, "Clear a quiet work space. Stick to a homework schedule. Set goals. Set boundaries. Do not bribe." But this approach to home studying may be the result of "sketchy education research" and, as such, completely wrong.” This article shows us that our traditional sense of learning habit is not correct. Consequently, you might ask what good study habits are. The good study habits including setting a regular time to study that fits in with the student's family schedule; removing distractions; gathering necessary supplies; recording assignments in an assignment book or on a calendar; note-taking and organizing for......

...Habits We all have habits, in fact, anything repeatedly done is defined as a habit. Habits are done without even thinking about them. Habits might be good or bad. Rising early, working hard, being punctual are examples of good habits. Gambling, swearing, lying, drinking, stealing, and fighting are examples of bad habits. I am a smoker, as much as I know that this is harmful to myself and others around me, I find myself struggling to quit. This is a bad habit. As much as I would like to quit, every time I try, I cannot get past the initial withdrawal. I know that each day that I would be smoke-free would be one day closer to being free from the addiction, and one step closer to a healthier me. That is when my subconscious takes over and with one quick movement I light up again. According to some around me, my worst habit is my use of foul language. I, on the other hand, believe in the freedom of speech and do not share their point of view. Words are just words, they only hold meaning if someone allows them to. I do understand that many people see that what they consider foul language to be someone’s limited vocabulary. I, on the other hand, believe that unpopular and unwanted speech is vital. I think one of my good habits is that I am a hard worker. I have consistently worked and provided for my family since I was eighteen years old. At one point, I worked a seven day a week job. It was tiring, and I had no time to see my family, but I trudged along knowing......

Good Habit, Bad Habit

...Taylor Daily U0677774 11/04/14 Article #3 “Good Habits, Bad Habits” The article I choose to read researched the neurological effects of habits on our brain and if it was possible to change our habits. We all struggle with habits that make us less productive or less efficient but that said we also have many habits (actions we don’t think about) that help us get through a day without wasting time with extra thinking. It is interesting from the article that our brain can make habits but cannot seem to forget them. They are stored even when not being used for a later date and time when needed. Our brains are working and thinking even if we aren’t aware of it. In the Infralimbic cortex of our brain, habits are stored and the actions that go along with them. That part of our brain is active when we go pour a bowl of cereal, or make a cup of coffee in the morning. It is the same routine and our brain isn’t wasting time or energy thinking about things we do everyday, these routines are habits. From an evolutionary standpoint it makes sense that our brains would create habits to help us only focus on the most important parts of the day, and let us focus of figuring out how to stay alive. It comes in handy in a tight situation to not have to think when a quick decision is demanded. Brains in humans and animals have habits that are stored for our safety and helping us get by day to day. A good example of a habit most people learn is driving a car. There is a lot of thinking......

...One habit that I have developed over time is getting up too late. I set my alarm in the morning, and then hit snooze multiple time. I have gotten positive reinforcement from hitting the snooze button. I know if I hit the snooze button, I am rewarded with 10 more minutes of sleep. My alarm clock is right next to my bed. One way I could correct this behavior is to move my alarm clock to the other side of the room. I would the have to get out of bed, walk across the room, and turn the alarm of. I feel this would be an example of negative reinforcement. Hearing the alarm is unpleasant, so me getting up and turning it off would stop that. I would be rewarded by not hearing the alarm sound any more. An example of a positive reinforcement, other than hitting snooze, would be to get a coffee maker that has a timer on it. Set the coffee maker to start brewing my morning cup when my alarm goes off. If I get out of bed, and into the kitchen right away, my coffee will be hot and ready for me. If I hit snooze it will be cold. I could also use positive punishment if I do not get out of bed on the first alarm. I like to watch specific shows at night. If I don’t get up on the first alarm, then I could force myself to miss the show that’s on for that evening and go to bed early. By using one of these operant conditioning methods I can break the bad habit I learned and reinforced over many years. The easiest method I think to break my habit is going to be the negative......

...“EFFECTS OF STUDY HABITS IN THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF 3rd AND THE 4TH YEAR PHYSICAL THERAPHY STUDENTS” INTRODUCTION The extent of the student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been interplay of so many factors-genders, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic performance of 3rd year and 4th year Physical Therapist. The investigation on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researchers to conduct this study. Before we proceed, let’s define the meaning of study and habit.

...time. If your schedule doesn't work, revise it. You must understand that your schedule is to help you develop good study habits. Once you have developed them, schedule building becomes easier. The Process of Study How to use your time Time is the most valuable resource a student has. It is also one of the most wasted of resources. The schedule you develop should guide you in how to allocate the available time in the most productive manner. Sticking to your schedule can be tough. Don't dribble away valuable time. Avoiding study is the easiest thing in the world. It's up to you to follow the schedule you prepared. A good deal of your success in high school or college depends on this simple truth. Where to study You can study anywhere. Obviously, some places are better than others. Libraries, study lounges or private rooms are best. Above all, the place you choose to study should not be distracting. Distractions can build up, and the first thing you know, you're out of time and out of luck. Make choosing a good physical environment a part of your study habits. Strategies Thinking skills Everybody has thinking skills, but few use them effectively. Effective thinking skills cannot be studied, but must be built up over a period of time. Good thinkers see possibilities where others see only dead-ends. If you're not a good thinker, start now by developing habits that make you ask yourself questions as you read. Talk to other students who you feel are good thinkers. Ask them......
