In my mind, August marks the half-way point of my year. (Don’t ask why; I don’t know, it’s just the way my mind works.) I treat it as such by working through my “August reset.”
As for the timing, yes, I am acutely aware of just how wrong this seems. Technically, the half-way point of the year comes at the end of June, but this reset isn’t so much about the actual time of year, as it is a mental state of mind.
What on earth am I talking about and what does this have to do with beauty?
To put it simply, I think of August as the beginning of the end of the year. Summer is coming to a close, fall is approaching, and it’s almost time to wrap up the year and reflect on all that I have, or haven’t, accomplished.
August is my time to change up my style and beauty routines, reevaluate my goals, and kick my butt into high gear so I can finish out the year strong. Creating an entire routine may seem a bit overkill to some, but I enjoy it SO much. I feel completely refreshed afterwards; it’s honestly quite addictive!
Today I’m giving you peek into how I set myself up for success in the second “half” of the year, and pointing you in the right direction to help you feel beautiful and productive too!
