Some Ideas For A Rainy Day Staycation: 

Binge Netflix

If you are looking for something to do at home while it is raining outside, you might want to turn on Netflix and relax. Find a show that you and your family would enjoy to watch together, kick back, and microwave some popcorn. Not only can watching your favorite show be relaxing, but it can allow you to catch-up on your favorite shows to talk about with your friends, co-workers, and family. 

Take A Bath

If you are looking for something that can help you relax during a rainy day, look to take a long and relaxing bath. This can be a great way to de-stress. The sound of rain can be relaxing as it is. The sound of rain and the storm outside can give you a good ambiance to enjoy a nice, long, and relaxing bath. To enhance the relaxation you are able to get from it, consider pairing your bath with one of MONQ’s essential oil diffusers like their Zen blend which will allow you to enhance your bath and make the entire experience even more soothing.

Bake Something

Baking can be a very fun and rewarding activity to do while it’s raining outside. After all, you will be able to enjoy the efforts of your baking shortly after. Not only can baking be a good activity to enjoy while at home, but it can keep you busy and provide a relaxing activity to keep your mind from wandering.

Visit Museums

Your staycation even during a rainy day is a good time to visit your local museums. After all, the museums will shelter you from the rain and you will be able to check out some things that you generally take for granted while living so close to them. This is a good time to act like a tourist in your own city and really explore different museums.

Read A Book

Whether you stay at home or go to a local cafe, you can finally read that book that you have been meaning to read for a long time. Reading can provide you a rewarding activity that can help you relax and get lost in the story.

Go Shopping

If you are someone that enjoys shopping, go to your nearest mall and do some good ole fashioned shopping. This is an especially good idea to do while it’s raining outside since you will be sheltered from it and you can really partake in shopping without the guilt of missing out on a beautiful day outside. Whether you are window shopping or actively buying things, shopping can be a very fun and exciting activity for those that enjoy it.

Get Some Friends Together

Nothing says a ‘good time’ like getting all of your friends together. Whether you are planning brunch, dinner, or a simple get-together. Try to get all of your friends together for some fun. You can have wine, cheese, and gossip ore reminisce about the good old days.

Rain doesn’t have to ruin your staycation. There are plenty of things that you can do while it’s raining outside that doesn’t have to ruin the fun. Simply be creative and look to enjoy yourself in a variety of ways.
