Exercise in the Rain

What’s So Good About Rain?

Solitude. Rain is the best excuse for staying home with a good book or to finally binge watch that Netflix show or maybe try that new recipe.  You might even get a few of those fix it projects done around the house. If you want company, it is a perfect time to invite a few friends over to play games.

Take a Walk. If you do decide to go out, all those places that you love so much but hate sharing with big crowds can suddenly be all yours! You can revel in your solitude, allowing yourself to BE in the moment without the distractions of other people breaking the silence.

Nature. the forest can be beautiful and can feel magical, like a fairyland you have just happened upon. A cloak of fog sometimes spreads out along the ground, creating a fuzzy white backdrop. It steals your footsteps so you can walk silently.   Animals don’t hear you coming as easily and you may get closer than normal before they notice you. The possibility of seeing a wild animal creates an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation.

Raindrops. Open a window or have a hot drink on the porch, rain is a unique music to those who listen. Raindrops often cling to every leaf, branch, petal, strand of silk, so that in all directions, you see beauty. On some leaves the tiny beads of water collect and form patterns while on others the drops are repelled, running off and splashing below, a kind of music that has the potential to soothe your soul and make your heart smile.

Growth. Even if rain is not your favorite type of weather, it is good to remember that rain is essential for human life (something to keep in mind the next time you go out in a drizzle). The fresh water rain is essential to the survival of every living organism, from plants to animals to humans. Fresh water sources are depleted by the natural process of evaporation, and rainy days replace that lost water. Plus, it is just so pretty when it rains!

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces you up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” – John Ruskin
