Don't let a rainy day get you down.

11 Rainy Day Ideas You Need To Try Soon

Whenever it's raining, we usually get down and out, but why not make it a time of productivity and fun?


Everybody loves a fresh batch of cookies, so why not try a new recipe?

Read a book

Is there a book you've been trying to read, but you just haven't had the time? Try starting it when it rains.


Finish binge watching that TV show, or start a new show that has been on your list for a while.


No one likes to clean, but when you're stuck inside on a rainy day, why not get it done then? Turn on some music and get to cleaning! Try a task that no one ever likes doing like cleaning out the fridge or dusting the blinds

Relax and take time for yourself

Take a nap or a bubble bath. Sit and enjoy the sound of the rain hitting your windows. Paint your nails, try that new face mask, or sit in your PJ's all day.

Plan ahead

Use this rainy day to plan for your next big adventure, project, or month. Plan out your work schedule, school schedule, homework schedule, or anything that you've been meaning to be more organized about.


Who says you have to stay in when it's raining? Use this day to go shopping and treat yourself to a new outfit or some new makeup products. Everyone needs a shopping day every now and then.

Game night

Invite your friends over, or just have a game night with your family. Pull out all of the board games, card games, and any other games you have.

Plan your outfits for the next week

Take this time to pick out your outfits and save you some time in the mornings for the next week.

Movie marathon

Start a movie series, or just pick out lots of movies that you want to watch. Pop some popcorn and watch them all afternoon long.


Turn on your favorite music and dance like no one is watching. Have a dance party with friends or have one by yourself.

What do you do when it rains?

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
