Rainy Day Activities + A Giveaway

Things to do on a Rainy Day

It’s a nice stormy morning here in San Antonio. Dark grey clouds blanket the sky in a sea of gloom. Thunder gently rolls. The sweet sound of rain taps at my window. And I love every second of it.

Here are a few of my favorite rainy day activities:

1. Sleep.

It’s no secret that I enjoy sleeping, napping and anything that allows me to put my lazy skills to work. And what better time to sleep than when it’s raining? Snuggling beneath warm blankets as the rain sings you to sleep is pretty much a lazy girl’s wet dream.

2. Read.

Rainy days are perfect for snuggling with a good book and getting lost in your imagination.

3. Watch movies.

Netflix is pretty much my bestie and rainy day sidekick. Go ahead indulge in your favorite movies and TV shows. Netflix won’t judge you for watching the entire series in a day.

4. Write.

For some reason rain gets my creative juices going. It’s the perfect time to sit down and write your little heart out about whatever you want. You can even catch up on that journal you’ve been meaning to start.

5. Dance.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”- Vivian Greene.

So grab your umbrella and do your best Gene Kelly impression. Let me tell you, Gene has got nothing on me! I do a pretty mean running man.

6. Have a snuggle session.

Stormy days provide the perfect soundtrack for a spontaneous snuggle fest with your special someone. And who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky. 😉

  • Sleeping, reading and watching TV are my favorite rainy day activities! Snuggling the husband and dogs too!

  • I love this list. Sleeping and Netflix are my favorites! I do them in rotation on rainy days when I’m at home 🙂

    • Yes! There’s also the option to sleep while watching Netflix, though that’s never planned. 🙂

  • My favorite is snuggling up on the couch with a cozy blanket and watching movies!

    • Ooh! Sounds like heaven. What type of movies do you like to watch on rainy days? I go back and forth between the cheesy romantic comedy and a really good scary movie.

      • I love the girly movies, like The Notebook. 🙂 But I also don’t mind a super scary movie!

  • I’m with you on all of these but since I can’t stay home this week, I’ll just keep my fingers crossed it stays sunny!

    • Yes! Rainy days are no fun when you have to drive in them. I hope you get lots of sunshine and wonderful spring weather!

  • I like, on a warmer rainy day, sometimes to go for a run so I get all wet and soggy, and then take a hot shower and put dry clothes on. THAT + a nap, is the best feeling in the entire world on a rainy day!

    • I’m not a big runner, but I love dancing in the rain! Then I follow it with a hot shower and a nap. Heaven. 🙂

  • Staying in bed, sleeping, and watching tv is the best on rainy days!!

  • Ah perfect timing for me to actually read this post because it’s rainy today! But I have to go to work, so I guess I’ll just dance in the rain 🙂
