Change Your Bad Habits.jpg 

Red header with "Introduction."

Many students will ask: “I know I need to make a change to become a more successful student – but how do I change my bad habits?” This online workshop will help you work through that process, so that you can transition from harmful or destructive habits to habits that enable success. Having worked with countless students, we at the Rinella Learning Center have identified several useful strategies to make that process possible. These strategies include figuring out which habits are holding you back; identifying your reasons for making a change; letting go of bad habits and embracing good ones; and maintaining accountability as you move through this process. This workshop should take about 30-45 minutes to complete; we also encourage you to come meet with us in the Rinella Learning Center (306 Shriver Center) to work on changing your bad habits!
