Although most people dread rainy days, you can find something good in everything. Just because the weather is gloomy, doesn’t mean you have to be. Here are 10 ways to beat the boredom of rainy days.

1. Binge watch your favorite T.V. Show/Movie

Everyone loves a good trip to their local movie theater, but nothing can beat a comfy day inside binge watching Netflix. If you can’t hang out with friends, due to weather, facetime them so you can binge together!

2. Bake or Cook

One thing guaranteed to beat boredom is cooking up your favorite treat. From homemade pizzas to chocolate souffle, the possibilities are endless for what you can whip up. The best part of all is after all your hard work in the kitchen, you get to eat your delicious creation.

3. Read a Book

Although reading may not be for everyone, for most it is considered a relaxing way to wind down on a rainy day. High school students normally have jam-packed weeks with very little down time so reading a book is the perfect way to settle your mind on a rainy day.

4. Crafts

When it comes to crafts, Pinterest is a holy grail for ideas. The creations you can come up with and assemble are endless. You also don’t necessarily need fancy paints and materials; sometimes amazing creations can be made from things you find in your backyard.

5. Sleep

As silly as it may sound, sleep is something teenagers constantly crave yet never seem to get enough of. Sometimes the best thing to do on a rainy day is snuggle with your pet(s) and take a nap.

6. Pick up a New Hobby

From photography to playing the piano, the opportunities are infinite as to a new hobby or talent you can pick up. A simple trip to Hobby Lobby can inspire a mass of ideas and activities to try.

7. Listen to Music/Podcasts

Sometimes the best thing to do on a rainy day is lay down and listen to your favorite spotify playlist. If you’re not in a musical mood, you can go onto YouTube and search for podcasts that would suit your interests.

8. Organize your Closet/Room

Sometimes the best thing to do on a rainy day is lay down and listen to your favorite spotify playlist. If you’re not in a musical mood, you can go onto YouTube and search for podcasts that would suit your interests.

9. Finish Homework Assignments

Possibly the worst thing to happen on a Monday is walking into first period and realizing you didn’t finish your assignment from over the weekend. As awful as it may sound, a rainy day can be the perfect time to either get your homework out of the way or get a head start on an upcoming project.

10. Dance in the Rain

When any of the above fail, sometimes the best thing to do is dance in the rain!
