From Muskoka Unlimited: Top 10 fun things to do on a rainy day

Posted: 2023-06-12 11:48:51 By: thebay

From MuskokaUnlimited.com: 

Inspired by a recent run of rainy and windy days, I figured it was a good time to share the fun things we do when the weather is less than ideal.

Of course, this list doesn’t include commitments like work or school as those are just necessities. On that note, here are the Top 10 Things we like to do on rainy days . . .

Players from the MUFC U15 boys team practice on a rainy Sunday in beautiful Huntsville, Ontario.

Play soccer (or any outdoor sport). Seriously. Running and kicking a ball around, sliding on the grass, getting dirty and sweaty and wet. It’s beautiful.

Go for walk or a hike. Dress appropriately and venture out into the rain. Probably best to do in the warm summer rains, but still a wonderful experience.

Listen to the rain fall. One of the most peaceful things in the world to me is sit and listen to the rain hit the roof, the windows, the ground and anything else. Drop after drop. It can be very relaxing and rejuvenating when combined with quality breathing techniques.

Check off the Honey-Do List. Bathroom needs painting? Furnace filters need changing? What about doing some purging of unneeded items (especially those that can be donated)? The Honey-Do list usually has at least one thing on it that can be started and even completed on a rainy day.

Read a book. Or even a quality magazine with good features. Either way, take some time to stimulate your mental muscle a little. You’ll feel better for it. This is especially good advice for those who don’t read everyday.
