Weekend Vibes - What to do on a Rainy Day

It is finally Friday and I am sure that all of you are ready to get out of work! After all it is TGIF (Thank God Its Friday)!

Unfortunately, not all of us will get the chance to spend their time outside – at least here around Zurich the weather forecast doesn’t seem to bring us much nice weather - again!

The Upscale team thought we could cover things to do in your home during this rainy weather – and yes, there are many cool things you can get done

#1 Create a Recipe Book


We all have some food favorites, you might be famous for your muffin, your spouse for his/her Chili con Carne but the kids still love grandma’s apple pie.

Rainy days offer the perfect opportunity for you to compile these recipes together. If you have kids, they can even do some drawings on the inside.

It will be a fun project, and believe me I have done it before. All you need is a cute Notebook and some pens and pencils. After you are done, you will see that you will end up cooking for the remaining of the day…. Food inspiration is in the air!

#2 Move things around

I am not talking about your big couch in your living room or the heavy dining table. All I meant are movable, smaller items such as side tables, decoration pieces etc. Doing this will help you clear the energy in your home. You will find new creative ways of improving your living space and feel some new energy come into your home.


#3 Play Games

What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than to play a board game with someone you love hanging out with?! Personally speaking, I am a lover of the following games;

  1. -       Monopoly
  2. -       Memory
  3. -       Mensch Ärgere Dich Nicht/Brandi Dog
  4. -       Uno
  5. -       Rummikub
  6. -       Carcassonne

If you don’t know any of these, you should try them out! I am sure you will love them all and have some very fun times playing them.


#4 Personal Spa

We all need moments of relaxation and inner-beauty, but we don’t need to run to a professional spa and spend a lot of money on it! You can have your own spa time in your home! Here are a few simple tricks to follow to give yourself an amazing “You” time:

  • Light some candles
  • Dim the light
  • Heat up your essential Oil diffuser with some eucalyptus or rose oil
  • Meanwhile, prepare Yasmin Tea
  • Treat yourself to a nice bubble bath
  • Have your towels heated - after the bath it will be an amazing and relaxing feeling
  • Apply a face mask – if you don’t have one at home you can make one out of yogurt, cucumber, lemon, honey, rose water, tea bags etc. just look some recipes
  • Play calm lounge/Buddha bar music

Drink the tea and relax, with your facial mask on! You will like one happy person. Don’t turn on the TV and keep your phone away for a couple of hours. It is important to find your inner calmness for this to be a successful Spa afternoon.
