We’ve all experienced those miserable rainy days. Days where we are stuck in the home with nothing better to do. Oftentimes, these days are unproductive and we simply procrastinate, hoping for better weather.
It doesn’t need to be that way! A rainy day is a perfect time to try something new and be proactive. For inspiration, you can find five things to do at home during one of those miserable days below:
1. Start Creative Writing
Why not pick up a pen and pad, and develop your writing skills? You could try your hand at anything from poetry or a daily diary, or even start a novel! Alternatively, you could simply jot down your thoughts and ideas, and dreams. This can be a therapeutic and enlightening thing to do – even for someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy writing.
2. Host a Virtual Quiz Show
Next, what about a virtual quiz show with your friends and family? You can use video call software like Skype or Zoom to host a group chat for everyone to join in. Someone could be the quizmaster and ask questions, or you could get everyone to create their own set of questions on a specific topic beforehand. Video quizzes like this can be so much fun and give you that much-needed human contact too.
If you have a full day with nothing to do, why not dedicate it to try and bake something new? Cookies, a cake, muffins – the possibilities are endless. The bonus is, is that you also get to eat something (hopefully) delicious at the end!
4. Visit and Online Art Gallery
Maybe you want to decorate your home? Or want to broaden your horizons and explore some new art? A rainy day gives the perfect chance to explore a online art gallery. You can find a range of online art galleries that showcase stunning creations but also offer affordable art to redecorate your home with.
5. Tackle That Unfinished DIY Project
Finally, we all have that one DIY project that is never likely to be finished. A shelf that we’ve meant to put up for the last year. Or that door that we’ve wanted to rehang. A rainy day could be the perfect time to get those never-ending DIY projects finished!
So next time you look outside and see a downpour – don’t despair! Instead, choose one of the above, and turn a rainy day into a fun adventure.
