How to Turn Rainy Day Blues Into Positive Actions (Oh, Let It Rain)! by Nancy Dafoe

How to Turn Rainy Day Blues Into Positive Actions (Oh, Let It Rain)!

It has been raining on and off for nearly a month. Yes, it is early June in upstate New York, but even here, that is too much gray sky. I’m a writer, and I don’t feel like writing. On a rainy day, I also don’t feel guilty staying inside and sorting my library or office, playing my music loudly, dancing a little between cleaning projects. Here’s my rainy day list:

  • Sort and toss clothes in closet.
  • Get rid of clutter on kitchen counters.
  • Organize files, both personal and business.
  • Teach my dog a new trick. He’s getting older, but he still loves this.
  • I’m in the mood again, so write a poem.

Reward: curling up in a favorite chair with a soft blanket, my pup at my feet, a great new read from the library in my hands and a cup of Earl Grey tea at my side. Keep raining, please.

I would say by the skin of my teeth, LOL! Nancy Dafoe , the reality is, if it's not in my calendar, it doesn't get done. So I keep a vigilant eye on my calendar. When I find downtime, I try to fit in yoga and walks. They both inspire me! Thank you for sparking this great discussion!
