The rainy days can be a hassle. You have traffic jams, wet shoes, and floods--leading to so much stress.
However, you shouldn't allow it to suck up your energy. There are many ways to brighten up a gloomy day.
Here are a few things that can lighten the load:
1. The classic coffee and book
Some book lovers enjoy rainy weather. On those days, they don't have to go out of the house. Instead, they can slouch on the couch all day, while enjoying a good book and a cup of coffee.
A book can turn rain into summer, or winter, or an eccentric mix of all four seasons. A freshly brewed cup of coffee, on the other hand, calms the nerves and keeps one awake during bed weather.
2. Binge watching series
If you're not bookish, try inviting your friends to binge-watch shows instead. This is your chance to catch up with old college buddies while watching the nerve-wracking series you wouldn't dare watch all alone.
Brighten up the mood further by ordering in your favorite food. Seize the day to remake the good ol' days in your college dormitory.
3. Visiting museums
There are a bunch of interesting museums in the country, from the newly opened Museum of Natural History to the Instagram-worthy Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo.
There are only a few people who brave the traffic during the rainy days. That's why it's the perfect time to go out and see interesting exhibits. Additional bonus: there's less of a crowd so you can take photos without photobombers.
4. Ramen hunting with friends
After your pictorial at the museum, why not go for a quick snack with friends? Or if you have extra time, go ramen hunting!
A good bowl of ramen can definitely make the skies bright, especially when you're feeling down.
5. Pamper yourself at the spa
Perhaps the ultimate activity that will surely calm your nerves is a day at a spa, such as California Nails & Day Spa.
