January is not the only time to hit refresh. As a busy summer winds down, people are using Pinterest for an autumnal self check-in and to make some changes to their routines. Beginning in August, people turn to their Pins and boards in search of inspiration on how to get ‘Back to Life’ as the summer season comes to a close. People often think of this particular time of the year for making small changes to their routines such as getting a new haircut, decluttering their wardrobe or refreshing their eating habits.
