Don’t let rainy days stop you from feeling productive. There are plenty of useful things to do on a rainy day without having to leave the house. Here are five ways to pass the time!
Declutter your home. Carve out some time to get started on spring-cleaning your home. You can make piles for throwaways, giveaways and keepers. Give your cleared-out closets and drawers a thorough scrubbing while you are at it. There is no better time to freshen up the house than a rainy day!
Get fit. There are many exercises you can do without any equipment, like lunges, squats, planks, sit-ups and more. If you are missing the atmosphere of an exercise class, pop in a workout DVD or turn on one of the many fitness classes on YouTube!
File your taxes. The Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service recently announced that the federal income tax filing due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year has been extended from April 15, 2021, to May 17, 2021. Filing taxes is nobody’s idea of a good time, but a rainy day is the perfect occasion for taking care of this necessary chore.
