Alternate Ways To Utilize Time In The Rainy Season
Do you ever feel bored sitting indoors because it’s raining outside? Not being able to use the pool or the gym, or your children not being able to play outside. This might be the scenario in most houses during the rainy season but you don’t have to be one of them any longer! There’s a world of joy that you can experience, well within your home.
Here are some fun and useful ways to utilize your time judiciously right at home:
It’s raining outside and you have nothing to do, remember, there are hundreds of recyclable waste at home which can be into whatever you desire! You can make use of empty plastic bottles which are non-biodegradable and turn them into something beautiful which will help your home as well as our planet. By cutting plastic bottles, filling it with soil and sowing seeds in it, you get an easy portable flower vase. Paint it yourself or have your kids paint them to add a personal touch to it. This makes your home look vivacious, colourful and fresh.
Have you ever gotten a sudden urge to eat something hot while it’s raining- that’s the best time for the chef in you to come out. There are millions of recipes to make. Put on your chef’s hat and whip up some delicious recipes to enjoy with your family while watching something together.
Create a potion
Monsoon brings in a host of allergies and illness along with dirt and stagnant water which in turn act as a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Firstly, you must make sure to keep all water outlets clean and avoid storing water in open vessels for too long at home. To further stay protected and free of diseases, turn your family’s and your safety into an interactive task where each of you can collect one ingredient each and concoct a homemade, non-toxic insect repellent for yourselves! A little bit eucalyptus/citronella oil, some lemon juice, vinegar and aloe pulp and you’re all set to combat the mosquitoes and other bugs!
How long has it been since all your family members sat down together to play a game? Combine a game of ludo or scrabble with the rainy weather outside and you have a fun thing to do! This activity is not just fun but also helps bring your family closer. Be it snakes and ladders or a bodacious 2-hour chess game, as long as all the family members are involved, you’re on the right track!
4-steps to a good life
A healthy body is equivalent to a healthy mind. If you’re one of them who loves a regular workout, don’t let the rains dampen it for you. There are plenty of exercises to do right at your home. All you need is a mat, some water and you’re good to go! Planks, lunges, crunches and air cycling are few of the indoor exercises that help you to burn calories and be fit without using any external equipment.
Nap it up!
Cloudy outside and cold insides are sure to make you sleepy. So, use this time to catch up on a new online series or even read a book and also catch a shut eye. Wrap yourself with a blanket, get cosy and nap away!
As long as you are optimistic, weather can barely affect how you go about your day. We hope that these ideas help brighten your not-so-bright days during the monsoons and you can turn this time into something fun and recreational!
