Hi friends!  It’s been super rainy here lately, and I’m about over it but I’ve managed to come up with a few things to do to keep myself occupied until it passes and I thought I’d share them with you.

How to occupy your time on a rainy day

Do you ever feel like your whole day is shot when the rain comes in?  I used to feel this way when I was younger, however, now that I am older I’ve learned that this is the perfect opportunity to slow down and enjoy the little things that I don’t always have time for.  It’s kind of a nice excuse to be lazy…

Here is my list of to-dos when the rain comes in.

1.| Catch up on your favorite blog.  Hopefully, this is one of them! 

2.| Read a book that you’ve been meaning to. I’ve been reading these lately.

3.| Try out a new recipe. Beware some baking recipes will not do well on rainy days so make sure you read ahead.

4.| Get a little online shopping done. Hello, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! (you can check out my favorite picks here).

5.| Pamper yourself with a mask (hair or skin), exfoliate your skin, and soak in a warm bubble bath.  A while back I made my own rose petal bath soak with coconut oil, you can find the recipe for it here.

6.| Find a new show on Netflix and binge watch it! No judgment here!

7.| Dive down a Pinterest rabbit hole and keep scrolling!

8.| Try out a new craft or DIY project.  Not feeling crafty? Maybe you should make a new playlist! I just made my summer playlist here.

9.| Plan out your meals for the week and prepare a grocery list.  This will take the stress away from the old “What’s for dinner?” question every night.

10.| Go through your clothes and purge what you haven’t worn in the past year. When the rain subsides, donate them to a good cause.

Now that you have the list, maybe you can make your own sunshine even if it is indoors!
