We recently had Emma with us for a school internship for two weeks and had her write up a blog post as one of her projects! It was so much fun having her around, and today we are sharing her top tips for things to do on a rainy day at home!
With Spring on the horizon, there is sure to be plenty of wet weather headed your way. So, I’ve made this list of 5 ways to beat the boredom that can accompany those rainy days spent indoors!
Chill & Netflix
What sounds better (rainy or not!) than binge-watching a good series?! Even with so many great new shows out there, one of my all-time favorites is Gossip Girl. And when it’s raining, it can be so relaxing to just lay down and chill. Pass the popcorn!
Get creative in the kitchen
Being stuck indoors is the perfect time to try out those delicious recipes you have pinned! Or you could invite a friend over and make your favorite dishes together. After all, a good meal should always be shared.
Work it out
Rainy days aren’t just for being lazy! Get out those mats and
get your blood flowing by doing yoga or pilates. There are loads of workout videos on YouTube that can help get you motivated – and don’t worry if you get sidetracked watching the latest music videos and it just turns into a dance party!
Mani’s & Pedi’s
Another idea is to give yourself a manicure or pedicure. I love trying out new nail designs and techniques. If you need inspiration, check out the mani inspo posts here on the heroine.nyc blog or on Instagram!
How about showing your skin some extra TLC? You can start with a warm towel over your face and cucumber slices over your eyes (you know, to really get that spa feel!), then use a peel-off mask or exfoliating scrub, and finish with your fave moisturizer. The earth doesn’t have to be the only thing getting hydrated!
I hope these ideas help you get through your next rainy day! Leave a comment below and let us know what your favorite things to do are when the weather has you stuck inside!
