The rainy day blues tends to keep people cooped up and wishing for the sun. However, rainy days don't have to be all gloom and laziness. With a little planning and prep, these days can actually turn into one of the most productive days of the year! Here are a few things you can work on next time you're stuck inside due to rain:

Purge Your Closet

A rainy day is a perfect time to clean out your closet and prepare for a big purge. Reviewing your current wardrobe will help you plan for next season, and will also allow you to purge worn or outdated clothing items. You can begin to plan for a garage sale or box them for charity. As you begin to pile up unwanted items, track them via an itemized list. If you choose to donate your purged items this list will be handy when it's time to file taxes.

Prep Your Will

As morbid as it sounds, preparing a will and a trust for your loved ones is a necessary task. This process is very detailed and may require organizing a lot of documents, accounts, and other information. A rainy day provides the perfect opportunity to begin researching this process and compiling the necessary information. You won't regret getting a jump start on this lengthy process. Depending on your situation, you may want to talk to a law firm like Donald B Linsky & Associate Pa to make sure everything is created correctly.

Review & Update Your Budget

Another great rainy day task is reviewing your budget and other financial imprints. Many people fly along using credit without fully analyzing how their expenditures impact their overall net worth. Rainy days are a great time to review your banking information, spending habits, and other financial obligations. Your review might lead you to new methods of allocating money, or you might also realize a new financial goal. Either way, reviewing and adjusting your financial strategy is a good move.

Align Your Social Media Accounts

Your social media presence plays a huge role in your life. Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram are just a few of the many popular social media channels used daily by people across the globe. It's extremely important that your social media presence remains professional and consistent across these various platforms. A rainy day is a great time to review your accounts and update your information.

These are just a few of the many productive tasks you can tackle on a rainy day. You'll feel accomplished and you'll be glad you spent the time reviewing these important processes.
