Productive Things To Do On Rainy Summer Days

I love that summertime is all about having fun and having the freedom to do whatever. However, rainy days can really put a damper on most summer plans. Although I definitely enjoy lounging around and watching Netflix on these rainy days, I also like to make these days productive so I don't have to waste beautiful days trying to get sh*t done!

I don't necessarily do long and extreme tasks, but I like to do little tasks that still make a dent in my productive side.

one || work on the blog
I always get the desire to blog whenever it is raining outside! To be productive in blogging, I come up with post ideas, check my email, write posts, post on social media, and plan out exciting ideas. It's the best time to get a chunk of blogging tasks done!

two || plan ahead
Being the type-A person I am, I love to make lists and plan ahead. I usually make a to-do list for each week during the summer and a to-do list for each day during the school year. Making to-do lists allows me to get an idea of what I need to get done within a certain time frame. Besides writing lists, I also like to utilize my agenda. I use it to write down the days and times I have work, any plans I may have with friends, and blogging due dates.

three || read
Reading may be seen as more relaxation than productivity, but I have always thought that reading is super important. Summer is when I have the most time to read whatever I'd like, so I always stock up on a few good books to read!

four || work out
The gym is perfect for when the weather isn't so great for a run outside. I love using the treadmill, elliptical, stairmaster, and more to stay in shape. However, my gym always tends to be more packed when the weather is bad, so make sure to go at a good time!

How do you like to be productive on a rainy day?
