Essay #2: Personal Habits
In Essay #2, we are continuing to practice applying the concepts from a text to our personal experience.
Like we did in Essay #1, we will continue to work on carefully reading and understanding the texts,
choosing strong specific examples to illustrate our connections to the concepts in the text, and explaining
how our specific examples connect to these concepts.
Directions
In an essay of at least three pages and six paragraphs, explain how a habit you have (or have had)
follows the habit loop as explained by Charles Duhigg in Chapters 1-3 of his book The Power of Habit
and come up with a plan to change this habit (or explain how you already changed it) based on Duhigg’s
theories of habit change.
In order to explain your habit and connect it to Duhigg’s discussion of habits, you will have to explain a
few concepts to your readers. These concepts include: The habit loop and how your habit follows this
loop; The role of craving in habit creation in general and in your habit specifically; The Golden Rule of
habit change and how you might change your habit according to this rule; The role of belief in habit
change and how you might incorporate this concept into your plan to change your habit.
Text Selections
Chapters 1-3 of The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
Important Things to Remember
• Follow MEAL or MEAEAL in your body paragraphs.
• Carefully explain key concepts and quotations within these explanations. Treat the essay as if
your readers are NOT familiar with this book.
• Proper citations.
• Specific, concrete details that relate your habit to the concepts explained.
