Many a times students tend to overdo or under do certain activities. They may spend too much time studying often letting their study hours invade their sleep or other regular activities or on the other hand spend too little time on studies postponing them for later. Such a habit is quite not only underproductive but also counterproductive. What it means is that unless one is regulated in his habits of eating, sleeping, work and recreation one will not be able to maintain his enthusiasm in his life.(BG 6.17) As the famous saying goes – all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and all play and no work makes him a mere toy. If one overdoes one’s studies most often than not one will lose his interest in studies. So it is vital that students maintain regulation in what they do. What will happen to a bike if you change gears haphazardly 1,4,2,3,4,1,3, etc? The bike will soon break down. Similarly, the body is a machine, if our daily routine is haphazard then our body and mind will soon break down leaving us with little or no enthusiasm for studies. Also if we our lifestyle is haphazard our peak concentration hours become unpredictable and consequently we may start feeling sleepy in class when we are supposed to be awake and we may feel hungry when it time for taking rest. Imagine if this happen on the D-day of competitive exams!! So it is important to regulate our lives so that we can be predictable in our performance and not lose interest in our studies..
