Like any type of weather, there are always ways to make the most of a rainy day.
Here’s some ideas of fun things you can do the next time you wake up and it’s raining.
#1 Make a tea and go for a rainy forest walk
One of my favourite things to do is go for a rainy walk in the forest. The way the mist and fog wraps around the trees and that fresh smell. It’s certainly worth doing to clear your mind and enjoy nature in a different way. Just be sure to bundle up and bring an umbrella!
#2 Binge on some TV shows
You could do this one in the same day as your rainy forest walk or you could opt to spend the whole day watching some episodes from a show you enjoy. Or do a movie marathon! There’s nothing like getting bundled up on a dark day and enjoying some TV/film time.
#3 Curl up and read a book
This is another nice way to stay cozy. You could even make a little self-care ritual out of it. Light a candle, brew a hot beverage, choose your warmest blanket, and indulge in a good book.
#4 Work on a new project
If it’s raining hard or really cold outside, this is a great time to work on something you’ve been meaning to do for a while but haven’t had the chance. That could mean baking some desserts, finishing up a room, decluttering, cleaning, etc.
#5 Head to the library or book store
I don’t know what it is, but making a fun little errand on a rainy day like grabbing a new book can be a great feeling. You also get to experience walking a little bit in the rain, too.
#6 Go to a café and read/write/do some work
There’s something really quaint about going to a café when it’s raining. You can warm up with a hot beverage while the rain patters against the window.
#7 Cook some stew
Few things are cozier than making a soup or stew on a rainy day. Your place will smell amazing and it’ll keep you warm.
#8 Take photos
Rainy days can make some lovely pictures. Whether you prefer natural settings or cityscapes (or both or in between), there’s a lot of opportunity to capture the beauty of a grey day.
#9 Have an at-home spa day
While you’re inside, it’s a lovely time to pamper yourself. Light a candle, play some soothing music, draw a bubble bath, put on a face mask, or give yourself a manicure.
#10 Head over to a garden greenhouse
If you’re in need of a little tropical feeling, there’s nothing like a greenhouse with bright flowers. Think of it as a mini escape and you’ll be able to stay warm in the process.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas! Feel free to share any others you might have below. 🙂
