When it is raining all I want to do is drink a nice cup of tea and swaddle myself in a blanket and read a book, who’s with me?
Ya. ALL OF YOU. Don’t deny it 😉
First things first though, I love me a little yin yoga rainy meditation type thing (it’s normal I promise).
It goes like this.
Wear the comfiest clothing in the world (I highly recommend pyjamas)
Choose three of my fave relaxing yoga poses
Lie in each for as long as I want and listen to the sound of the rain.
The plinkety plunkety of the rain combined with the yin poses and the meditation = (scientifically speaking) the body and mind become more relaxed than a noodle cooked well beyond al dente.
Because Australia apparently turns into a tropical monsoon party in the springtime, and hits 30 degrees while there are massive thunderstorms outside, there is more than ample opportunity for me to practice this.
Also, please note that the above three poses are AMAZING for runners and target the hips and IT bands. Usually when I start out doing them I feel uncomfortable but gradually sink into them as I start to relax.
Now, about that cup of tea+book+swaddling situation….
What is your ideal rainy day activity?
