By: Jessa Lubiano

Sometimes bad weather might make us mentally unbalanced. Try one of these incredible things to do on rainy days instead of sitting around doing nothing all day! You may find an enjoyable day spent indoors with fun rainy-day activities, things to do for adults, and the whole family, some self-care suggestions, and productive hobbies.

The beautiful thing is that these exercises are effective no matter why you are inside. So, pull out this list if you’re stuck inside your house and lot on a rainy day.

Here Are What Self-Care Activities You Can Do at Home on a Rainy Day:


First, taking care of oneself is one of the nicest things you can do on a rainy day. So before continuing, start with a few from the list of self-care ideas below, and turn a rainy day into a self-care day.

Take a nice warm shower.

A hot bath has also been shown to be effective in lowering mental tension since taking a warm bath causes the nervous system’s activity to decrease and level out. The sum of these benefits may increase working memory, linguistic ability, and processing speed while also enhancing brain function.

Make a list of five uplifting statements.

Using positive affirmations can help you break bad thought patterns and create a new neural pathway for good ones. Positive thinking patterns eventually emerge, and your positive thoughts influence your behavior. You might gain new abilities, perform better at work, or strengthen relationships as a result of this.


Meditation may also help decrease job-related anxiety. According to one study, employees who used mindfulness meditation software for 8 weeks felt better overall and felt less stressed out at work than those in a control group.

List the things for which you are thankful. 

The benefits of practicing a gratitude list include increased happiness and even better physical and mental health. According to research, acknowledging and expressing gratitude for the good things in your life in writing has a profoundly positive effect on your emotional well-being.

Have an at-home spa day.

Circulation of Blood is Improved during DIY spa treatments. Immersion in the hot, therapeutic spa water can help the blood circulate more effectively around an injured or sore muscle, which helps lessen pain, swelling, and bruising. Additionally, better blood flow throughout the body may help the heart work more effectively.

Create a self-care package for later use.

It has been clinically demonstrated that practicing self-care can lessen or completely remove anxiety, despair, and stress as well as boost happiness, energy, and attention. You can put in some relaxing oils or scented candles, a bubble bath to relax you, a book that has been sitting on your TBR shelf for a while now, or you could prepare your own playlist for your future self to listen to when times become tough.

We must not forget to take care of our mental health just as we take care of our physical health.

Exercise inside.

YouTube has a ton of free content, including dancing and yoga. Or have a family member do some quick reps with you. It will release feel-good hormones and can create a bond between you and your family. Also, exercise is not just good for the body but for your mental health as well.

Do your nails

Dead skin cells must be removed in order to promote the creation of new skin cells, therefore regular manicures and pedicures ensure this. In order to have strong, healthy nails, new skin cells are essential.

Get an adult coloring book.

Adult coloring books can also help you concentrate better. Your frontal lobe is activated when you color, which means your brain is organizing and solving problems. You can unwind from the day and concentrate on one thing during routine coloring sessions.

Purchase or test out a fresh makeup item.

Applying makeup is one activity that can help the body and mind calm down and concentrate. Dopamine can also be released after you’ve finished applying makeup. This may serve to increase one’s sense of self-worth, cheerfulness, and general morale.

Prepare a cup of your preferred coffee and enjoy a good read.

Studies show that the anti-inflammatory effects of coffee are linked to a reduction in depressive symptoms. The brain’s depressive chemicals are blocked by caffeine. Caffeine prevents a chemical (adenosine) that contributes to weariness and depression from attaching to receptors in the brain.

Make a mental dump. Clear your mind of everything that is circling there.

A brain dump is the total transfer of accessible knowledge about a given subject from your brain to another storage media, such as paper or the hard drive of your computer. Let loose and scribble, write it down like a to-do list if you have to, or type your anxieties away during this gloomy season. Just to clear your mind.

You should journal.

Your day, feelings, tasks, blessings, or anything else that comes to mind should be described. Like anything else, writing gets better with practice. When you keep a daily notebook, you’re honing your writing skills. Additionally, keeping a journal will help you communicate your ideas and thoughts more effectively in general.

Take a nap

Naps are great for any person at any age. Numerous studies show that taking a nap improves learning and performance while also reducing daytime tiredness. Naps might increase focus and reaction time for shift workers. 

Make a call to a loved one to talk.

Talking over the phone can improve your relationship and increase closeness. You can only improve your communication skills with that individual by better understanding them emotionally by listening to your partner’s response, inflection, and tone of voice. In the end, a call is simply special.


We require our muscles’ flexibility to maintain the range of motion in our joints, so stretching keeps them strong, flexible, and healthy. The muscles shorten and tighten without it. The muscles are then weak and unable to fully expand when you want them to work.

Give your pet a cuddle

Humans and animals can benefit from cuddling, caressing, and scratching one another. Oxytocin, the “happy” hormone, is released in both animals and people who cuddle with a dog or cat. The hormone is linked to emotions of trust and empathy and can support a close relationship between humans and animals.

A dance party.

It does not have to be a literal party with a crowd. You could just put on your favorite song and start dancing. Some would find dancing as a way to express their emotions, to let out their anger, frustrations, their anxiety.

Cook and eat.

Meal prep is one way to spend your day indoors. Nothing beats the comfort that food brings. Bring out your family recipe book or try that new recipe you found online.

Movie and game night.

In this day and age, movies have become accessible. You can watch a movie with just one tap on your phone. Watching upcoming movies could help you relax. Or, if you’re looking for something else, try a game night. Bring out your favorite games, host a scavenger hunt with the family, and play treasure hunters.

One way to ensure that you can be motivated on a rainy day is you invest in a home that is secured and built on quality materials. This way, you and your family can safely rest and enjoy a rainy day without having to think of anything else that any rainy season may bring. Ponticelli is a perfect community that brings you just that.
