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.

Thank you, Elisa. How do you manage your time?

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!
