Why routines & Habits

One of the biggest changes students face in life after school is the lack of routine and structure they've become so used to. No longer will there be set classes at set times, clear goals defined for them and parents and teachers to watch over their progress and point them in the right direction.

Developing good routines and habits provide a strong foundation to build from and a sense of security young people need to reach their potential.

Good routines and habits help young people;

  • Get enough sleep
  • Maintain a balanced diet
  • Improve their organisation and efficiency
  • Manage their time between work, study, family and friends
  • Stay fit and active
  • Remain more emotionally stable

Course content

This course is designed to;

  • Introduce students to the routines and habits of highly successful people and why they’re so effective
  • Help students discover what routines and habits will work for them
  • Show how to build strong routines and habits, what the common mistakes are and how to avoid them
  • Give them practical tools to help them along the way

We run interactive surveys with students to help them identify their personality traits such as their resilience to failure, their susceptibility to distraction and preference for security or opportunity.

By helping students understand their strengths and weaknesses, they can select routines and habits to complement, helping to ensure they have a well rounded, balanced skill set, and are prepared for the challenges of the HSC and life after school.

The course also involves a number of videos and other material designed to be engaging, fun and relatable for young people. Here's a taste of one video we use from former US Labor Secretary & UC Berkeley lecturer Robert Reich.

 
 
 

How it works

The workshop is designed to run for 90 minutes, but can be customised to suit your school.

Each of the topics listed above in 'course content' are independent modules, meaning they can be combined to form workshops anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours in length.

All course content has been designed by experts with plenty of life advice to pass on, and developed to combine the right information with engaging learning practices that make it simple for students. You can learn more about our team of advisers here.

Workshops will be run by up to two of our experienced facilitators, depending on the number of students. We can cater for year groups of up to 100 at a time.

Also included is a student resource pack, full of carefully curated content that will help students build and maintain strong routines and habits. The material has been selected to be engaging, fun, and useful, and includes new media from the digital world student live in, including blogs, podcasts, audiobooks, apps and more.
