How to Spend a Rainy Day at Lerner University Square
A gloomy, rainy day can put a damper on even the cheeriest of personalities. Ward off the stormy weather blues for yourself, your kids, or whomever with Lerner University Square’s ‘how-to spend a rainy day’ guide. We say rainy days are always better spent trying family activities and new or relaxing ideas.
Host your own tea party and let your children create the guest list. Sometimes it’s pretty hysterical to sit back and witness your own kids doing the darndest things. Be forewarned, they may or may not invite everyone from your pets, to their dolls, to their favorite stuffed animals, to your parents or next door neighbor. For all that, you might as well go all the way and get gussied up, bring out the good china, plate the finger foods, and remember to extend your pinkie as your guests arrive.
Adult coloring books are really in nowadays. You should try it. Coloring is boatloads of fun and a rainy day is the perfect time to start. Coloring books are no longer just for the kids. So don’t feel obligated to channel your inner child, although due to the fact that this activity allows the brain to focus and turn off other thoughts it’s definitely meditative by nature.
Catching Up On Shows
The good thing about digital conveniences such as Netflix is the fact that you can log on and enjoy top shows back to back without interruptions. In other words, you don’t have to wait for the next season to air and you don’t have to deal with annoying commercials that only want your money. Rainy days are perfect for vegging out in your comfy apartment.
Movies are another rainy day way to totally veg out. Pop some popcorn and start your own throw back of classic flicks or catch something new at the multiplex. In Greenbelt, we have either the AMC Center Park 8 or the Academy Stadium Theaters nearby.
A rainy day is more fun when you share it with others. You and your friends could always play board games. Basically, almost anything you could do at home alone would be a double dose of fun with company.
Reading and writing
Cozying up with a good book is a great way to spend a rainy day. But if you’re not much of a reader, journaling is just as great. Both reading and writing reduce anxiety, create focus, and enhance mindfulness.
Enjoy a lazy, rainy day cuddling with your significant other. Rainy days are always better spent when you’re in your pajamas all day with someone you love. If staying in isn’t your thing, you can always go on an intimate day trip to the theater instead. In our neighborhood, the Old Greenbelt Theater is a favorite.
Using Your Amenities
Although you might not appreciate shooting hoops, swimming laps, or playing tennis outdoors in the rain, you could always take advantage of your apartment’s indoor amenities. Some apartments have better fitness centers then those commercial gyms. Use the rainy day to get your workout on. The fitness centers that belong to apartment communities are usually never crowded. Typically, they’re laid back, pressure free, and you can work out at your leisure.
Nothing beats the rainy day blues like a fresh batch of homemade goodies. You can reinvent your favorite family recipes or pull new instructions from the internet. Afterwards, you can indulge in the fruits of your labor.
Do a little spa therapy. There are so many homemade recipes to create during a rainy day. On the other hand, maybe you went to the drugstore to purchase a deep conditioning treatment? Well, dreary weather is the perfect time to use it. You could also get other self-care rituals out of the way, like dying your hair or painting your nails.
