How To Make the Most of a Rainy Day

Tuesday, September 19, 2017


Rainy days can be the best days (as long as they do not happen all the time). I am pretty sensitive when it comes to weather. I have suffered through seasonal affective disorder in the past and so creating for an uplifting day during periods of gloomy weather, is extremely important for me. For this reason, when rainy weather strikes, I always make it a point to create for a productive day so that I can take my mind off of the current state outdoors. The following are my top 5 tips for making the most of a rainy day.

1. Include some positivity
Listen to a self-help talk, read an uplifting book, and/or read/listen to the word (if you are into that).

2. Cook something cozy 
Such as chili, soup or stew. I would also recommend cooking these in the crockpot so that your kitchen smells like yummy goodness all day long.

3. Declutter
This is an activity proven to bring you satisfaction. To prevent being overwhelmed and to maximize the feeling of accomplishment, choose a small area in your house - such as a closet, desk, etc. I highly recommend decluttering based on the Konmari Method

4. Watch your favorite movie/tv show
Take the time to catch up on a missed episode or watch a classic favorite.

5. Daydream and write down some goals
Take the time to daydream and use that energy to create some weekly and monthly goals by writing them down in your cute planner.
