1. Raindrops on the window

We all know that rainy days are perfect for two things: curling up with a book and, let’s admit it, a little bit of lazy lounging. There’s just something about the rhythmic patter of raindrops that makes us want to hit pause and simply enjoy the moment. Forget the spa; this is nature’s very own brand of therapy, free of charge.
