Introduction
Education in today’s life plays a vital role in the development of a learner. The acquisition of new knowledge, information and the way one responds to the learning environment makes him a holistic learner. One of the most important in shaping the mind and the heart of a learner is to train them on how to grow independently, how to apply what they learned inside the classroom in their real life situations, and how to understand things and make them useful to one’s life. To make it this possible learner should have their own ways on how to practice study habits.

People’s personalities are based on their good and bad habits. Good and bad habits can influence everyone’s personal and social life, they can also help better on your life and bad habits can make it worst. In school, student creates his own image for a better life. However, many of the habits needed to truly be successful are learned outside the classroom. Developing good habits that will help students of all ages succeed can never start too early. These routines will help students in school and for the rest of their lives. It will give them the tools they need to live life to the fullest.

On the other hand, there are many factors which may affect good study habits. Study habits can be affected by the environment in which the student studies, the family condition where the child starts to begin his journey and the amount of time used for studying is another affecting factor.
