More than 400 teenagers and youths aged 14-22 years from 7 centers in Australia (Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) and New Zealand (Auckland and Wellington) attended the Youth Seminar on the theme ‘Breaking Habits’.
The three main topics were overcoming bad sleeping habits, excessive use of the internet and procrastination. The seminar included live dramas which depicted a typical youth’s bad habit tendencies. Thereafter, experienced swamis spoke about the issues and their solutions, using scientific facts and inspiring examples on how to shed bad habits and develop positive ones.
Youths were inspired to reflect on their habits and make changes to their study routines, sleep routines, and use of internet and technology. The seminar encouraged youths to focus their minds and strengthen their foundations to becoming well-rounded individuals, and to progress in both their studies and satsang.
