In my first Challenge Wrap-up Post we covered the Cornerstone of Skincare: BEING CONSISTENT. And we looked at how it's almost impossible to perfect a routine without being committed to a daily practice.
The challenge then looked at:
Week two: TECHNIQUE - ISOLATING VARIABLES WITH TWEAKS
Week three: RITUAL- WEEKLY INVESTIGATIONS
ISOLATING VARIABLES: You can't test more than one variable at a time so this challenge gave you a chance to be specific and clarify exactly what you're working on. This is why it's so important to track your progress, either in your Journal Post or a Bullet Journal you keep yourself. Documenting your journey is a key strategy for maintaining a clear purpose with your routine as you experiment with different routes towards your ultimate goals.
WEEKLY INVESTIGATIONS: Breaking down the Challenge into Weekly chunks and especially DECLARING your task for the week is a great way to focus your attention where you need it. This is a skill you can continue to develop as you work through issues in the future. For this first Challenge there were specific tasks but as you develop your skills you will be able to identify your own tasks. Updating your Bullet Journals is essential for success in order to lay out exactly what you're working on at any given time.
As we move into the next Challenge I hope that the skills you've introduced during this first Check-in become second nature to you. But if it hasn't, don't worry! It takes time to develop a new habit. Even if you feel like you're fully on board there can be roadblocks: both practical and mental. You can't overcome a roadblock without acknowledging that it's there so if you need to work on it we can make that a part of the Challenge.
I'm looking forward to working on the next Challenge with you!
