13 things to do on a rainy day.

When  you live in Belgium, you get used to rain. A lot of rain. Although I have to say, we've had an incredible summer this year but it's been different too. An entire month of rain in August, for example. Seriously, I'm not exagerating: nothing but rain! Saying goodbye to summer this year was extra hard because you never know what next year is going to bring and for all I know, this might have been the best summer in a very long time. But I decided to be positive about it and embrace those typical Belgian rainy days. Just because it's raining, doesn't mean it has to be boring! If you're uninspired on what to do on those cold, rainy days, I will help get you started with 13 things to do on rainy days:
  1. Have a spa day. Because what's better than spoiling yourself for an entire day? Take a warm hot bath, take care of your skin (using your own body scrub), pamper yourself with a mani/pedi and just relax...
  2. Make a cup of hot chocolate milk and cuddle up under a blanket with a good book.
  3. ... or forget about the book and just watch the raindrops (the sound of rain can be so soothing)
  4. Invite some friends over and have a movie/girls night (see point 1 as well)
  5. Online shopping. Because not being able to go outside doesn't mean you can't go shopping.
  6. Clean out your closet/desk/whatever needs to be cleaned out.
  7. Stop procrastinating. Okay, maybe this one doesn't sound as appealing as the other ones, but believe me, you'll feel better when you finished that one project you've been putting of for all this time. So go cook that recipe, make that DIY, finish that scrapbook or whatever project you were working on... You know what I'm talking about.
  8. Reorganize/redecorate a random room. Because you can.
  9. Cook ahead. Prepare yourself for a busy week ahead and already plan and if possible cook the meals for next week. It will save you so much precious time when coming home from work.
  10. Plan a weekend getaway. I'm sure you can use one.
  11. Game night! I'll admit I hate board games (truly hate them) but I'm always ready for a night of Singstar or Just dance!
  12. Make a capsule wardrobe (more on that here)
  13. Or... go outside and go dancing in the rain... You know you want to.
What do you like to do on a rainy day?
