Tips to Combat the "Rainy Day Blues"

Raindrops, Clean, Water, Window, Rainy Day, Water Drops

Rainy days can really put a damper (SO PUNNY) on things. I mean, really- it's dark, hard to get out of bed, you feel groggy all day and the worst- bad hair days all around. When you have naturally curly hair, rainy days are your enemy. I actually somewhat enjoy rainy days (minus the hair issues) if it falls on a weekend where I can really take advantage of the chill vibes it gives. It's been nothing but rain here in Missouri, so I figured I'd compile a list of some ways you can enjoy a rainy day!

  1. Enjoy a cup of your favorite coffee. We all know coffee is comforting (and if you don't know, now you know- there's a throwback for you). There's nothing like taking that first sip in the morning. It's warm, rejuvenating and comforting. On a rainy day, treat yo self, girl. You deserve your favorite Starbs or Dunkin' drink.
  2. Relax. Rainy days tend to make me feel relaxed, regardless of how stressed I am about my hair going from straight to Medusa in the matter of seconds. Take a nice hot bath, read a good book, light some candles and play your favorite music- do whatever relaxes you.
  3. Dress comfy. I live for comfort- there's nothing I hate more than tight clothes. The second I walk in the door from work or running errands, I immediately throw on a pair of sweats and a baggy t-shirt. On a rainy day, throw on a pair of leggings (after all, they ARE pants) with a high-low top, or throw on your comfiest jeans.

  4. Cuddle up with your pets. Nothing beats the warm snuggles of a fluffy dog or cat! Our chocolate lab Zoey loves to cuddle on the couch. There's something about those warm snuggles I can't get enough of!
  5. Binge watch your favorite shows or movies. Lifetime, Lifetime, Lifetime. I LOVE Lifetime's movies- they're filled with drama, horrible acting and are new every week. Get your Netflix on, girlfriend!
How do you combat the rainy day blues?

  2. I love rainy days - especially on the weekends, when I get to do all these things! I find that rain is actually a bit meditative and calming, and I'm particularly grateful for it around this time of year when it washes all the pollen away!
