The fall is coming! And guess what fall is bringing with her? Some rainy and boring weekends.
Some people (even some scientists) say that boredom can be good for recharging your mind and body so you should slow down from time to time and embrace the boredom. But, sometimes you just don’t want to be bored and you don’t want to eat and watch Netflix all day long. Especially when it’s raining every single weekend.
So, here are 5 ways to turn the rainy weekend into a fun one!
- Playing games
You probably have some interesting board games laying around the house, such as Pictionary, Five Seconds or Monopoly. Are they covered in dust? Well, clean up the dust, call the other family members to the table, and start having fun together. If you’re home alone, you can also have some fun online with games like Uno or online betting apps. There’s no reason for you to stay bored when you have a computer or a mobile phone!
- Cleaning your home
This may sound like a really crazy idea, but if you think about it – it’s actually a pretty good thing to do. It doesn’t cost you any money, you don’t have to get out of your home to do it, it gives you quite a good workout in the process and the end product is a neater, cleaner and healthier environment for you and your family to live in.
If you don’t have any idea how to start, check out Marie Kondo website or her show on Netflix. People love her and she gives some great tips on how to declutter your home.
- Have a Spa day at home
Next time when you’re out doing groceries, put some spa items in your shopping cart too. Get yourself some foot mask, face mask, eye treatment patches, and some nice hair conditioning mask. Save it for a rainy day and treat yourself to a spa at home. Put on your favorite music and forget about the world around you! You will feel amazing afterward and you will be ready for whatever the week in front of you brings you!
What is the last book you have read? You don’t remember? Well, go to the library or buy yourself some nice book and start reading. If you don’t have the reading habit, it is still not too late to develop one. If you don’t know where to start, follow some book bloggers on Instagram and check out their recommendations. This is one of the best ways to kill boredom and exercise your mind in the same time.
- Be creative
You can do so many different things to spark your creativity. You can play the piano, write a letter, paint (even your walls if you want), make a music video for one of your favorite songs, take photos with your mobile phone, make a collage from the photos you’ve made, do some crafts… As you see, there are a bunch of options for you.
