A lot of people enjoy the rain, but there are few others that don't. It makes them feel sad and melancholic. Well it's time to change that! Rain is amazing, not only because it's good for our environment, but because one can feel inspired to do things that we forget to do on other days.
-It's a perfect excuse not to worry about make-up, hair, good clothes, etc. You can put on some pjs and just relax!
- Take advantage of the darkness, close your curtains, and sit/lay, close your eyes, breath slowly. Try releasing any tensions you had that day. I love taking naps too!
- Lay down and listen to the rain outside; the thunder, the alarms that sometimes go off, the way the winds affects the sound of the rain.
- Sit in an area where you can see the rain clearly and just grab a cup of tea, coffee, milk, etc.
- Cuddle! Cuddle with your love, your pet, your pillow, your blanket. Feel cozy and listen to the rain fall on the roof :) (try to enjoy nature without distractions on the computer/tv, at least for a bit).
- Read a good romance novel or science fiction book!
- Do things that you put aside during sunny days. Maybe a little bit or organizing, cleaning, making a dessert, completing a puzzle, writing a letter, etc.
- If you are a bit lonely at home, go somewhere relaxing. Get a pedicure, a manicure, watch a movie with a friend, go to a cafe!
- Do something crazy... like dancing in the rain (with someone would be better). Sounds akward, but it can be fun and become a very special memory.
Just enjoy it! I am from Lima, Peru and we never have rain there! If we do, it's pitiful... tiny droplets like a subtle mist while the temperature feels cold and yucky. So when it rains here, I love it, even when I'm at my office. Today the front door (where my desk is) opened by itself due to the wind, and it scared me! It felt like a scene from What Lies Beneath. The only thing missing was a ghost. Luckily I did not scream.
... And to end this post... just like the song says: have you ever seen the rain coming down on a sunny day? :)
