For those of us who romanticize the rain, the arrival of the wet season brings with it a harmonious chorus of raindrops, a burst of vibrant green landscapes, and a feeling of serenity that is unparalleled after fresh rainfall. However, while the rain offers essential hydration for the environment, not everyone is eager to wait out the rainfall indoors. But with the right approach and a few preparatory tips, you can maximize your time indoors and take advantage of those rainy days from the comfort of your home.

Prepare your home for optimal rain viewing.

The first step in romanticizing the rainy season is creating an ideal rain-viewing experience. Do you have a large window? Consider pulling back the curtains and arranging your furniture in a way that allows you to get cozy while you watch the rain fall. For peace of mind before you get comfy, be sure to first secure doors and windows, tend to outdoor furniture or potted plants that may not handle heavy rain or winds well, and check for any areas inside or outside of your home that may be prone to leaks or puddles. By doing this before the rain arrives, you can rest easy and enjoy nature’s beauty from the comfort of your bed or couch.

Stock up on comfort snacks and beverages.

Before the rain comes, it’s time to stock your pantry and fridge with cozy comfort foods. From coffee, tea, wine, and cocoa, to soup, snacks, and baking ingredients, consider what you’d love to be munching and sipping on while you’re watching the rain or staying in for a movie night. Perhaps a rainy day is the perfect time to experiment with cooking or baking. Purchase your ingredients now so you’re ready to get cooking when the rain arrives.

Adjust the lighting.

Because the rainy season typically means less natural light and sunshine, it’s important to consider the indoor lighting of your home. Natural light can play a big role in our moods and mental well being. You may want to purchase additional lamps, switch from warm light bulbs to cool light bulbs during the day to emulate natural light, or swap out dark drapes for lighter colored ones. You may also consider hanging a mirror or two in your living space to amplify natural light. LED illuminated mirrors can even offer an additional light source in your bedroom or living space.

Create a cozy reading corner.

Sometimes there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book. If you’ve fallen out of the habit of reading, the rainy season is a great opportunity to reintroduce reading into your routine. By designing a dedicated cozy reading space, you can romanticize your reading experience and encourage yourself to pick up your book more often. Ensure your reading space is comfortable and well-lit. Need a boost of light during a dreary day so you don’t strain your eyes reading? Refer to the section above for tips on increasing the light in your living space. During the day, you may choose to swap warm light bulbs out for cool bulbs to imitate natural sunlight, or you can hang a mirror to amplify the lighting in any room.

The rainy season doesn’t have to be a dreary experience. By preparing effectively and seeing the opportunities that come from cozy days spent indoors, you can romanticize rainy days and enjoy nature’s beauty from the comfort of your own home.
