The Power of Habits

Habit is a cable; we weave a thread each day, and at last we cannot break it. - Horace Mann

Dedication and discipline towards anything can turn into a long-term pattern, this is what we call a habit. However, it isn’t always a good habit. Bringing change to your life does not only affect you physically or mentally, it institutes core values and principles in you. Respecting your elders, treating others with kindness, loving your family, and more are just habits that you develop over a period of time. Waking up and going to sleep early are certainly good habits. We must know that good habits have the power to change our personalities and give us a different outlook towards life.

To showcase the power of habits and how to inculcate them, ISR Club at SCMS NOIDA organized a webinar on “The Power of Habits” on 5/03/2021 at 3:40 pm to 4:40 pm. The cub invited Mr. Karnamrta Krishna Dasa, the youth mentor and a guide at the Akshaya Patra Foundation. 

The webinar began with an example illustrating how the habits are borne in the subconscious mind and its aftermath remains post human actions. The speaker threw a light on the effect of daily interactions on habit formation. Some habits take the form of addictions. Three layers of behaviour change, when breaking a bad habit were explained. These days, along with a decent academic grade, a good character often holds a fair weightage at times of selection process in corporates! A detailed structured habit loop was explained which revolved around three components - cue, routine and reward.

Furthermore the speaker elaborated on paradigm and paradigm shift underlining how different people perceive things differently. Seven good habits he mentioned were proactiveness, mental creation, physical creation, positive outlook, understanding, synergise and perseverance. All the sentences were well structured and reached the audience well as we students often miss out on the importance of mental well being amidst hectic schedules. The last part of the webinar consisted of the impact of improper appetite in daily life compromising one’s physical and mental capabilities in turn affecting productivity. The session was then followed by questions put up by the students. 

The sum and substance of the webinar came out positive and fruitful. We learnt if we placed our routines and habits right, we could put two and two together come what may!
