Even if there are a lot of people who love rainy days, some still find them unbearable and filled with boredom. Whether they just love going out, like to travel a lot, or just enjoy spending as much time as they can in nature, basking in the sun, this particular weather is just not fun for them. If you are one of them, you already know how agonizing it is. And it’s more upsetting when you have planned that weekend for weeks and a random storm just decides to ruin it.
However, you shouldn’t let a little bit of rain destroy your day. If you are determined to relax and enjoy your free time, there are a lot of nice activities to indulge in.
If you are looking for a way to drive away that awful feeling of boredom, you might want to try some of these tips.
1. Read a book
This is the oldest trick. Rainy days are better spent reading your favorite book, cuddled in a big, fluffy blanket with a nice cup of tea or hot cocoa. It will take your mind of that frustrating feeling that you are trapped inside and allows you to escape and let your mind wander. A book is always the best companion for this kind of gloomy day. I personally love reading crime novels in this type of weather and they are my absolute favorite.
2. Write a letter to a friend.
There’s something incredibly soothing about this particular activity. As you are very careful with your handwriting and attentive not to make any mistake, you will discover how pleasant and satisfying it is and how quickly it will get you absorbed. The relief you may feel as you pour all your feelings onto that little piece of paper and spread some love to your friend or family is also a bonus.
3. Complete a puzzle
Maybe you haven’t tried it in a long time, but puzzles are really fun! Even better if it has a lot of pieces. It will keep your mind busy and entertained at the same time. Also, it’s really satisfying to watch as it’s finally starting to come together. On a rainy day, when you have so much time on your hands, this is the best activity.
4. Take care of your skin
Have a spa day. You can try everything from a hot, bubble bath to some pampering and gentle skincare hacks like a soothing face mask or some rich and plumping face serums and oils you wanted to try for some time which will surely help firm and refresh your tired skin, leaving it soft and tender. Moreover, it will help you relax and get rid of all the stress and tension you were holding.
5. Write a short story.
There’s no better feeling than letting your imagination run wild and letting your thoughts drift to mysterious places you will love to visit, living epic adventures, and forgetting all about this boring reality.
Even if the weather just happens to be awful, you shouldn’t sulk about it. There are a lot of things to do that will definitely lift your mood and keep you entertained and so don’t let a rainy day ruin your mood.
