Tweaking Tuesday

I love rainy days especially when I can stay home.  The darkness of the day reminds me of times at a cottage when I could sit and read or play cards.  Basically the rain seemed to slow me down, forcing me to rest and take care.

Most often I hear from people the old tale that rainy days get them down.  The heavy atmospheric pressure can certainly lead to headaches and feeling blue – some of which I cannot control.  However, if there is no headache in sight then I can choose to take this slower day as a gift or wallow in sorrow because the sun is not shining.

So, what do I do to take control of a slower day?

  • I plan my time so that I am not left feeling that the day is lost.  Currently I using a planner from MAMBI   .  My dated Happy Planner (that’s what they are called) is an 18 month and finishes in December.  The second planner I use is more of a journal that tracks for 13 weeks. Best Self Journal is a hard covered book with numbered pages and places to create and track your goals.  I used both of these books everyday as part of my Start My Day routine. (I have no affiliation with these 2 companies, just a fan)
  • Once my SMD routine is completed then I look at the plan and execute.  On a dark day like today I have knitting, spinning, and carding all listed as part of my fiber work.  These craft activities help keep me centered and relaxed.  Besides, just because it’s rainy and gloomy I don’t need to sit around and mope.
  • Filling my water bottles and planning meals also helps to lift my spirits.  Being hydrated is good for my health and planning meals means I’m not stuck wondering what’s in the fridge.

What activities to you engage in when life seems dark and gloomy?  I’d love to hear your ideas – what works and what clearly does not help.

Of course, music and a great voice can help on any day.

Enjoy.
