Mak­ing It Count

HALF THE YEAR HAS ZOOMED PAST US. Do we have any­thing to show for it? Res­o­lu­tions have prob­a­bly long been for­got­ten, and the dol­drums have pos­si­bly set in af­ter the high of sum­mer and the ar­rival of the gloomy rainy sea­son. Is there noth­ing to do but trudge on to the 2017 fin­ish line?

Of course not! A year isn’t marked merely by sunny sea­sons or hol­i­days. If all you have to look for­ward to for the rest of the year is Christ­mas, then it’s time to shake things up a bit. Ev­ery day is a chance to make this year count. An­noyed that you still haven’t lost the pu­son you swore you would lose this year? Our four-week gut makeover (page 30) can help you get on the right track. Bank ac­count still hasn’t re­cov­ered from pay­ing for tu­ition? We go into the heart of the mat­ter, so to speak, and help you fig­ure out if your emo­tions are wreck­ing your fi­nan­cial life (page 56). Suf­fer­ing from a se­vere lack of sleep with the kids’ early-morn­ing school rou­tine? You don’t have to look it—you can face each day for the rest of the year look­ing super fresh (page 38)!

It’s not just an­other day, an­other week, an­other month. All those seem­ingly mun­dane days add up to make up a po­ten­tially amaz­ing year. You can still make it your best one yet! Tisha Al­varez EDI­TOR IN CHIEF face­book.com/good­house­keep­ing.ph
