I love the rejuvenating effect of rain on life and here's how I enjoy it.
What To Do In Rain:
- Be happy and grateful.
- Eat a hot snack and take a warm drink.
- Contemplate in solitude.
- Or gather everyone at home to wet in rain.
- Play under the rain.
- Read an adventurous book in a shade.
- Draw what you see or write about it.
1. Be happy and grateful:
- Rain reinvigorates nature. Grasp this opportunity to strengthen yourself and be jubilant.
- Don't forget to be grateful for this blessing.
2. Eat a hot snack and drink a warm drink:
- Have a cozy time at home when it's raining outside.
- Make some crispy fried snack. (Traditionally in my country we make pakora in rain. Cut potatoes like french fries, add gram flour, salt, red chili, cumin and some water. Mix and fry till crispy and golden)
- Take a warm drink to be snug in rain like tea or coffee.
3. Contemplate in solitude:
- Contemplate the nature unfolding before you and praise its beauty.
- Deduce life lessons by examining the birth of life after rain.
- Make use of this solitude to look into the inward eye.
4. Or gather everyone at home to wet in rain:
- What's better than cold water sprinkling on you after a hot summer month.
- Invite everyone around you to participate in this liberating activity.
- wet in rain without thinking about anything.
"Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.”
— Emily Wing Smith
5. Play under the rain:
- Play your favorite outdoor games under the rain.
- Be creative and invent some personalized game.
- Fill a bucket with water and dip sponges in it. Throw at each other and count scores based on number of successful hits.
- Remove needle from a syringe and fill with paint. PAINT FIGHT.
6. Read an adventurous book in a shade:
- Grab a book about someone's adventures in a rainstorm and picture this in front of you.
- Some adventure book recommendations:
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
“Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.”
— Bill Waterson
7. Draw what you see or write about it:
- There can be no better time to bring out our creativity.
- Capture the beauty on paper in words or picture.
