Cozy Rainy Day Activities for Wellness

Here are the best things to do when it’s raining outside! Healthy habits increase wellness exponentially bit by bit.

1. Do things By Dim Lighting

For any hobby, activity, meal you eat, etc., try doing them with dim lighting. This means turning off harsh fluorescents and white light and instead using soft yellow lighting. This invites the cozy rainy day vibes in.

2. Redecorate

One lovely activity to do on a rainy day is redecorating! Change up your space to suit you more. Readjust the flow of a room, or add a cozy corner with a chair, blanket, dim lamp, and cozy book.

3. Tea Party Time

A sweet activity to do, on any day really, is a tea party! Steep some tea and bust out the cookies and biscuits for a little party. Let the rain add an ambiance of peace and calm to the cozy little tea party.

4. Crochet

Or knit! A cloudy day is a perfect time for a slow, calming, repetitive activity like knitting or crocheting. Best of all, you’ll have an accessory or item of clothing to show off and use after all that effort.

5. Zen it Up

Cozy rainy days are perfect for tuning into inner peace and finding a meditation flow. Let the natural noise of rain, clouds, and lightning lead a meditation that will calm the mind and body swiftly and easily.

6. Read a Book

The weather is storming and the mind is free to wander off into fantasy lands, romance adventures, and mysterious alleys. Grab a book and get under a blanket. Let the story lead you far away.

7. Indoor Planting

Being a proud plant parent is the most amusing indoor activity to do in general! But you have to start somewhere and a rainy day is the perfect time to do so. Start from a seedling if you’re feeling brave and begin germinating a plant. PS, basil is relatively easy to grow.

8. Nap

Turn the phone off, let the mind calm, and get rid of any alarm if possible. Let the sounds of raindrops falling on window panes lull you to a deep, restful nap.

9. Bubble Bath it Up

The weather outside can be considered refreshing, cleansing, and renewing. Give yourself a cleanse and make it better with bubbles!

10. Mixology Time

Have you always wanted to make a Manhattan but have never had the time or atmosphere to do it? Well, it’s storming outside and it’s the perfect time.

11. Moisturize

This one is more practical but hey, skincare is self-care. After a cleansing bath or shower, take the time to moisturize your body. The added humidity in the environment will make it even more effective in nurturing the skin.

12. Change Your Look

It can be fun to change with the weather. Add some bobby pins to your hair, put on a new pair of shoes, and enjoy the cozy vibes from the comfort of indoors. I once dyed my hair blue when the weather was gloomy, and my look gave me so much serotonin, no complaints. 

13. Write a Letter

Rainy weather is a cute time to sit down, light a candle, and pen out some letters. Tell your friends things you hesitate to say out loud, give news updates to family, or leave your roommate a note to find. Mail them or burn them or hand deliver them later!

14. Camp Indoors

When the weather is a bit gray, it’s the perfect time for camping indoors! Set up the vibes with a tent, microwave s’mores, and let the sounds of nature fill the room. Enjoy all the impressions of camping without the bugs or bears.

15. Start Journaling

Think about the weather and start a journal entry about what you’re feeling. Work through anything on your mind. This can help free up your mental bandwidth, so to speak. 

16. Try a New Recipe

Treat yourself to a homemade meal. Look up a recipe you’ve been dying to try and take the time to follow the steps. Romanticize your dinner by lighting a candle, eating mindfully, and adding pretty herb garnish on top of dishes.

17. Bake

Baking is a cute rainy day activity sure to bring a smile to everyone’s favorite. While something like bread may be affected by humidity, you can’t go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.

18. Stream a Yoga Session

Can’t make it to yoga due to the weather? Today, there are many ways to access yoga from the comfort of your home! Stream a session of yoga to go along with the rain and watch how you feel less stressed and more motivated.
