Reading all day is good for you

You probably think I'm making that up, but according to research, reading is a more effective stress reliever than listening to music or going for a walk—even more effective than doing yoga (even though my mom doesn't believe me.)

It's not that I'm stressed—but I admit, all of this rain is kind of bumming me out. It's stressful for my grandparents, too, who could use a little, okay a lot of sunshine. Flooding could be an issue this year...many of the streets where I live already are.

Sometimes I love running in the rain, but not with these downpours lately. And since we're looking at another rainy weekend, I plan on getting a good jump on my Summer Reading Challenge. What better way to spend a rainy day than immersed in a good book?

And you know what? After reading, I might take a nap, or watch something on Netflix. Because next week when the sun (supposedly) makes an appearance, I'll be busy with chores, training, and if I'm lucky, an afternoon at Klondike Days.

How are you spending your rainy weekend?

Gotta jet!
