For most people, rainy days mean staying indoors and canceling any plans of going outside. Others, however, take the opportunity to head outside and enjoy it to the fullest. The American poet Henry W. longfellow famously said, “Into each life some rain must fall.” and he was right, for experiencing rain doesn’t hurt and may even be good for you. Here are some awesome benefits of walking in rain.
Walking in rain can relieve depression as it clears your mind of all the worries inside your head. The smell, the sound and the feel of rain is all very soothing and helps divert attention from negativity.

When it rains, the streets are empty and all the day’s activities are closed down. It allows you to see things through a different perspective as it brings you out of your normal daily routine. With your mind clear, it gives space for creativity to flourish and our thoughts to run wild.
Walking in rain can help you relax. The sound of rain is very comforting. The cool breeze and rain drops further adds to the effect. It helps cool our heads and divert our minds from stress.
