It can be tricky to know how to keep yourself occupied at home on a rainy day, particularly if you have only recently moved to the States. When the weather means that staying inside all day is the best option, then you will need to have a few activities up your sleeve which will help to pass the time. These days can actually be highly enjoyable provided that you have enough to keep you entertained throughout the day. So, if the weather outside is keeping you in and you do not want to sit around twiddling your thumbs all day then read on for a few suggestions.

Online Betting

Online betting is another fun way to pass the time whether you are betting on a local team or a game being played back home. It can be quick and easy to start betting online at places like Unibet where you can bet on all kinds of sports fixtures and other events.

Boxset Binge

Sometimes you can't beat simply curling up on the sofa and getting stuck into a good boxset. It is a golden age of TV right now with many incredible boxsets to catch up on so you are sure to find one that takes your fancy and will keep you entertained for a few hours. TV shows can be a huge conversation topic in the USA, so watching the latest boxsets could make it easier to integrate with society if you have recently arrived and are struggling to make friends.

Write A Journal

Many people find journaling to be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing. If you are new to the country, then you might find it helpful to jot down your thoughts and feelings which could be interesting to look back on in years to come.


Baking can be a fun activity, particularly with someone else, and it is a good way to pass the time and be creative. Not only this, but it also gives you some tasty snacks to enjoy during your boxset binge.

Pamper Yourself

On a rainy day, sometimes the best thing that you can do is to pamper yourself. It can be hard moving to a new country, and the stresses of this can take its toll. Treating yourself to a bubble bath, and taking care of yourself can alleviate stress, rejuvenate the body, and help you to feel better.
