10 Reasons Why Rainy Days Are Just The Best

By  | 

Monsoon is here and I cannot stop celebrating. Who doesn’t love rainy days? The advent of monsoon is such a relief from the maddening heat. As a kid, I loved running outside to play in the puddles, and now as an adult, I simply love listening to the rain and spend hours watching it out of my window. Everything around feels absolutely clean and that fresh earthy smell is like nothing else. Landscapes have a surreal quality after the rain with wispy clouds giving an added element of depth. Soft drizzle drapes everything in a muted air that inspires a sense of peace while big pattering raindrops seem like a dance of sorts inviting the imagination to new places.

Still need some convincing? Here are 10 reasons why they are simply the best.

1. They are the best excuse to stay in

You can finally start with the book you have been waiting to read with a steaming cup of coffee or indulge in your favorite sitcom marathon. Rain facilitates a day where you and your bestie hang out on the couch watching movies — a.k.a. the way things were meant to be.

2. The rain inspires you

Your level of creativity is directly related to the weather. Bright and sunny? Creative drought. Steady downpour of rain? Steady downpour of ideas.

3. You get more work done if you are at office

A study conducted at Harvard Business School found that employees produce more work, and are able to complete tasks in shorter periods of time on rainy days. Apparently, sunny weather tends to distract workers, because it makes them daydream a lot more. Do you agree?

4. You can happily stroll through crowded places

A lot of places are less crowded during rainy days. It is the perfect time to explore the streets of your city when they are not packed with people.

5. You do not have to water your plants or wash your car

Two fewer chores to do in life! Can it get any better than this?!

6. You won’t feel the pangs of a bad hair day

No one expects you to have a perfect hair day on a rainy day. It just takes sooo much pressure and time off!

7. Clothing up is so much easier

Getting dressed on a rainy day is so much easier. You can quickly slip into your comfy sweaters and even your sweatpants and nobody is going to judge you for that.

8. Ordering in is so satisfying on a rainy day

Ordering in is so much more convenient and rewarding on a rainy day. Apologies to the delivery guy though.

9. A rainy day is the best excuse to cuddle

The post rain aroma is that perfect scent no sunny day can ever provide.

So live it up, pluviophiles!
