You look out the window and it’s pouring rain on your day off. Great! No really, rainy days are great! For real! Keep reading to find out how you can make the most out of rainy days. 

1. Rest

Rainy days give us an excuse to stay indoors and to relax. Cozy up with a warm cup of tea and a book by a window to listen to the sound of the rain drops or watch a movie. Better yet, take a nap or sleep in.

2. Catch up on housework and cleaning

If you are like me, you would much rather spend your time doing outdoor activities on a beautiful day than doing housework and cleaning. Rainy days give us the opportunity to catch up and we don’t feel like we are missing out on beautiful Summer days.

3. Take up a new hobby or project

For most of us, life is filled with “things to do” and when we finally have some time to ourselves we are tired and we opt for watching a new show on Netflix to unwind. When was the last time you took up a new hobby or project? Rainy days are the perfect time to take up a new hobby like painting or knitting or to begin a new project. Hobbies are definitely more fulfilling that watching television and they may be even more relaxing!
