Habit is Second Nature

There some things which we do because we need to do them , if we fail to accomplish them in time we will be in trouble . But there are some works which we do just for habit . And sometimes the line between the two kind of works get merged and we tend to work like a machine . This often happens with our daily routine . For example we eat our dinner , breakfast or launch because without this our health would suffer , we will be trouble in completing our daily chores . But as they are part of our daily life most of the time we eat because we are habituated . We don’t feel hungry but we need to take our launch at certain time of the day .

Habits that we form in our early childhood becomes our nature as we grow up . Some are good for us and some are bad , even harmful . But it is the duty of the parents to inculcate good habits in children . Be it food , hygiene , sleep good habits will always help us to keep healthy .

There are some habits which are important for becoming a better citizen . Like respecting our National symbols ,Anthem , elders , our culture and heritage , monuments , good ettiquettes etc .

And there are some which help us in improving ourselves . Reading good books and listening to good music are two habits that help us to grow better understanding of life and improve our taste . Another one is using dictionary . Most of us feel lazy to look up the pages for the meaning and usage of a word , and try reading between the lines . But use of dictionary is one of the most important habit we need to develop in us . This has great impact in later part of our life too .

And along with developing good habits we need to discourage bad and unhealthy habits as soon as possible . Because habit is second nature ,we are what we do .

    Yes,parents play a major role in moulding a childs behaviour. He/She should be taught to correctly identify between the good and the bad. After a particular age, i.e. when they start understanding things, parents should make it a point to appreciate whatever good things they do. While doing so, they will get encouraged to do more such things so that they would get appreciation. On the other hand when they do something wrong, dont beat them or give severe scoldings. If you do so they tend to get angry and try to repeat such things. Instead you can advice them later regarding this with care.

    There are good habits and there are bad habits. We should cultivate only good habits as over a period these habits become a part of our nature.

    Not only parents but also to some extent the environment and the situations play a important role in moulding it.
