Thing #3: Spend a rainy day watching movies in my pyjamas

If you are going to do this, do it right.  Follow my tips for the full therapeutic benefits of this kind of duvet-day:

  • Check the weather forecast to make sure the day you have planned will be rainy.  There is no pleasure in staying indoors while the sun is shining.
  • Schedule nothing else for this day.  Have your meals prepared (or order pizza?) and have plenty of snacks at hand.
  • Get the right mix of drama/ humour/ romance in your movie choices and maybe include 1-2 favourites that you know and love.
  • Shower in the morning and change into clean pyjamas.  This makes the day seem intentional and productive and you’ll feel less of a slob.

Sounds like a plan! We've had plenty of rainy days here, and stayin' indoors in pj's, watchin' films, and snackin' sounds like the perfect way to spend the day. But guess what...we have sun the next few days so that'll have to wait. Have a great weekend!!! sheila

I love this! And you're so right -- it has to be dreary outside for a day like this to be perfect.
