5 Easy Ways To Bounce Back From Summer Into Fall – #BounceBack Giveaway

 

The long warm summer days have ended here in the Pacific Northwest and the rain has settled upon us once again. As our family starts to transition from summer into fall there are a few things we do to bounce back from summer into fall.

It can be quite drab here and when the rain seems endless it’s always nice to bring a little summer inside to brighten up the place. One of the easiest ways to brighten up my day and truly bounce into a joyful mood is with a summer fresh scent, my favorite song to dance to, or even baking something sweet in my kitchen.

That transition from summer to fall can be the roughest for our family and there are somethings we do to bounce back from summer into fall.

5 Easy Ways To Bounce From Summer Into Fall

  1. Start a schedule and stick to a routine – After school activities can be rough on your schedule so pick activities and stick to them. Our girls have chosen to do gymnastics and ballet, those activities fill our weeknights but once we’ve settled into the routine it will become easier.
  2. Plan your meals ahead of time – I always get so behind with meals as we bounce back into our busy schedules. An easy way to be sure my family eats healthy all week long is to prepare ahead of time. In fact it only takes me a half an hour every week to make a meal plan and grocery list.
  3. Adjust your sleeping schedule – An easy way to bounce back from fall into summer is to start adjusting your sleeping schedules. I’ve found that as it gets darker out sooner my kiddos get thrown off their schedules. I plan ahead by giving them more time to wind down before bed, and keep a night bath, book and into bed routine.
  4. Bounce back with style – As the weather starts to get cooler I pack away all the summer clothes and pull out the warmer clothing and jackets. I also prepare by buying new items like rain boots, hats, and jackets before the season.
  5. Plan a getaway – Long gone are the beachy rays of summer but there’s nothing like planning a mid-winter getaway to keep you excited about the coming season!

 Bounce is one of those products that brings back a little piece of summer. In one small sheet, Bounce provides four amazing benefits to help you #BounceBack from whatever life throws at you in the laundry room: softening, freshening, static control, and they even help repel lint and hair from clothes. If you have sensitive skin there is also a perfume free variety.

  • Outdoor Fresh: Adds a big, smiley summer day to your laundry, and the house.
  • Fresh Linen: Get ready to dive into bed!
  • Spring Fresh: The smell of springtime bursting out right under your nose.

    Planning meals ahead of time is my absolute downfall. I so need to do that!



  2. michelle rattan on September 27, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    i bounce back by just trying to ease into things as they come and not worry about things. it can be very crazy if you worry about everything being perfect.



  3. Sherry Conrad on September 27, 2013 at 8:20 pm

    I do a fall cleaning / re-organizing and decorating.

  5. Laurie Emerson on September 27, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    I bounce back from summer by completely redecorating my kitchen and living room with cheerful fall colors. It really helps to energize me and by doing it it helps me to bring back memories of my mom who I lost and miss so much. She loved decorating for fall.



  6. Rebecca Lock on September 27, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Our family is trying to bounce back from my brother in law’s suicide 2 months ago. We are taking it day by day but we are bouncing back.



  7. Deb S on September 27, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    I will bounce back from the summer by going to bed early each night about half and hour after the kids. This will help me regroup for the year.



  8. Lisa Garner on September 27, 2013 at 12:22 pm

  11. April Yedinak on September 27, 2013 at 6:05 am

    I plan to bounce back by upping my exercise routine and the amount of time I spend walking to keep the winter blues from setting in.



  12. Deb C on September 27, 2013 at 2:40 am

    I bounce back by cooking foods made from produce I buy at country Farmer’s markets. It’s a double bonus because it’s fun to visit them and delicious to eat.



  13. Brittney House on September 26, 2013 at 11:32 pm

    During the summer months, I got a little lazy with my working out. I’m going to bounce my butt back into the gym this fall. haha

    I will bounce back by buying a stack of good books and digging into those over the next several months.



  19. Kellie Conklin on September 26, 2013 at 8:43 am

    I was hoping to get a full time teaching job this year. Unfortunately I was burned at the last minute. To bounce back I put my energy into finding new subbing jobs and spending more time with my family doing things I wouldn’t be able to do if I was working. Thanks!



  20. Brandy Nelson on September 26, 2013 at 3:05 am

    Okay, this is WAY TMI, but it’s the best bouncing back story I can think of….My first marriage was horribly abusive. I was with him from 16-23, and he literally turned me into a terrified, meek person. I had no friends, couldn’t talk to family, and if I had a job, I had to hand him my checks because “women are incapable of managing money”. His abuse brainwashed me and made me truly believe I was worthless and that no one would ever love me. I ended up suffering from bulimia, depression, and extreme social anxiety for years. When the physical abuse started happening to my son, I did the most terrifying thing ever and threw him out, pressed charges, and got a restraining order. How have I bounced back? Well, I have been remarried for almost 6 years to a wonderful man who treats me like a princess, I am no longer the prisoner of depression or an eating disorder, (although social anxiety is still an issue…I have a hard time making new friends and meeting new people) I have 2 more beautiful kids, I am a blogger, (not as awesome as you, but I do okay,lol) I manage all of our finances and do our taxes, I drive a Mercedes that is paid for, and my house was bought in full with cash. My ex freaking HATES that I am so happy now, too. I would definitely call that bouncing back! Thanks so much for the chance to win and for all of your hard work!!!



  21. Holly on September 26, 2013 at 3:04 am

    I bounce back by slowly adjusting my routine to ease back into fall and everything that comes along with it!

  39. betty on September 24, 2013 at 6:35 am

    With fall weather we need to shift to warming slowcooker and casserole meals. These one pot meals are great timesavers which lets me bounce back into reorganizing closets, garage et cetra. I started changing the light summer quilts to heavier ones this week. Love the scent of all that fresh bedding when it comes out of the dryer.



  40. Wild Orchid on September 23, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    I will bounce back by getting back on track with healthy eating and exercise. I had a little too much fun this summer, and let things slide!

  65. Deb K on September 21, 2013 at 7:20 pm

  73. Christina on September 21, 2013 at 11:27 am

    I will bounce back by getting us all (hopefully) back onto a schedule and into a better routine. We had such a rough summer (lots of medical things in the family) that I am looking forward to a routine. Plus I can get back into running after I get the big kids to school, so I can bounce back to feeling better physically.



  74. kim h on September 21, 2013 at 10:13 am

    I just start a count down to next summer, set new goals, new vacation plans…..



  75. Rebecca Parsons on September 21, 2013 at 9:44 am

    The end of summer is tough for me always but now its time to get a last minute garage sale so that we can get rid of some stuff. We seem to accumulate a lot of the fall and winter months. But this year we will be having 2 new grandbabies in a month so the summer ending won’t be as hard to deal with.



  76. Kim Henrichs on September 21, 2013 at 8:32 am

    I will bounce back by getting back to a solid meal planning schedule, and making lots of fall treats as to not be so sad about summer being over!



  77. Stephanie Phelps on September 21, 2013 at 6:45 am

  78. Nicky on September 21, 2013 at 6:04 am

    Time to start shopping for jackets & boots



  79. Laura F. on September 21, 2013 at 5:30 am

    I will bounce from the end of summer to fall with a new grand baby



  82. Tari Lawson on September 21, 2013 at 4:28 am

    I am not ready to bounce back from the end of summer :(. I guess I have to so I will start getting my jackets out and ready to wear.
