Rainy days aren’t all doom and gloom. There are lots of great things that come along on days when dark clouds send drizzles over the land. Aside from washing away sweaty and hot days, there are lots of reasons why rainy days at home or even during a vacation improve an experience.
Here are five reasons why you should enjoy rainy days whether you’re traveling or just staying in bed:
Warm Foods Taste Great
When the temperature drops, you can be sure piping hot and warm foods are a great comfort. Aside from tasting delicious, these foods will also bring much needed warmth from the pit of the stomach to the rest of the body. With the invention of the microwave oven and toasters, you can have simple dishes heated up in a jiffy to snack on while it pours outside.
Cozy and Stylish Clothes
Winter aside, the rainy seasons are the only times you can wear those trendy cold-combating clothes you keep in the closet for the rest of the year. From adorable cashmere sweaters to rocking hoodies, you can don them while you’re going about your business at home; or you can strut outside in stylish, waterproof boots or shoes. Just because the world is looking a little bleak doesn’t mean your clothes have to follow suit.
Increased Chore Drive
Picture this: You’re stuck at home, not able to just waltz around outside, and you have a list of chores you’ve been putting off for a few days or weeks. A typical resort would be “Will do it tomorrow,” but the best answer is to get up and get moving. On cold, rainy days people often have heightened drives to do work and be more creative. It is not known whether it’s the effect of the weather or the result of having a limited list of things to do for the day, but you’re more likely to get moving and grooving during that time.
With sunlight dim and rain pitter-pattering on the window pane, no days are better for relaxing at home than rainy days. The lowering of your body temperature, the cooling climate and toned down colors allow your senses to feel even more at ease than usual (unless you are a workaholic or have to go to your job). If you don’t have any chores left over, take the time to soak in the rainy-day vibe and just veg out on your couch, watching your favorite series or even taking a well-needed nap.
Nature Becomes Vibrant
Water is the source of all life for humans, plants and animals. During the rainy season, you may notice that plants become greener and animals become a livelier. Gardeners are also thankful for the thorough soaking of their flowers and other plants. When rain stops, take the time to look around outside and appreciate nature at its finest, with the leaves and petals covered in jewel-like drops.
And those are just some of the great things about the rainy season. What are your favorite rainy day activities or aspects?
