With Spring starting in a few days, we should be expecting many rainy days for the next few months. Rainy days can be fun if you have the right activities, so we’ve compiled a list of activities you can do on the rainy days to come!
- Try a DIY Project
DIY’s are the perfect way to make use of a rainy day. You get the opportunity to be creative while making something that will create a better living space. Many of our previous blog posts have DIY recommendations, so if you’re looking for ideas, take a look at some of our other posts!
- Have a Spa Day
Turn your rainy day into a self care day! With some bath bombs, face masks, and comfy clothes, you can turn your home into a spa. Everyone needs a day to pamper themselves, and this is one day where you don’t have to worry about doing anything else!
- Learn a New Recipe
Most days, we don’t have time to try out a new recipe. On rainy days though, you’re inside and have all of the time you need to try something new! We have a variety of different recipes in some of our blog posts, so check out what we’ve posted in the past!
- Make a Bucket List
We all have our dreams of what we want to do in life, and when it’s a rainy day, you might be stuck thinking about what you would rather be doing. Since you’re already thinking about other activities, why not make this an activity in itself! Start giving into those daydreams by planning what you want to do one day.
- Do Nothing
Sometimes, doing nothing is the best activity. We often feel like we have to fill our time with exciting or productive activities to be happy, but in reality, you can sit on your phone all day and binge watch some Netflix if that’s what you need. That’s a form of self care in itself!
Rainy days aren’t always fun when they come around and sometimes they end up ruining plans. It may make you feel trapped and leave you feeling bored. Despite this, rainy days can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. It may allow you to take a much needed break or catch up on some things around the house. Needless to say, being cooped up can feel restricting, but here is some indoor activities to help keep you busy:
- Read a book
Now is the time to pick up that book that you’ve been planning to read, but haven’t been able to get around to. Go ahead and grab that book and find yourself a comfy spot to seclude yourself for that quiet time you need.
- Take a nap
What better time to catch up on your beauty sleep than now? Get cozy, snuggle up, and relax!
- Watch that new movie or tv show
Like that book that you kept promising to get around to, put on that new tv show or movie your friends have been raving about. Sitting down long enough to watch a few episodes of that new show won’t harm anyone.
This one can be helpful in also curing that craving for chocolate you’ve had since last week. Depending on what kind of ingredients you have currently in your house you might have help in deciding what to make and how much of it too.
- Game night
Get all the kids out of their rooms! A little family time will be sure to leave you with plenty of laughs to help you pass the time.
- Clean your house
Catch up on those odd jobs around the house that you know needs to get done, but keeps getting avoided. Cleaning can help you regain some control and order in your life too.
- Facetime your friends
Chances are if you’re cooped up, so are they. Give them a ring and enjoy a fun conversation with some of your closest pals.
Remember that everyday is a chance for you to make it your own, so despite the cards you may be dealt, enjoy each moment you have!
