Craft projects, home decor, baking etc – there’s nothing quite like such things for relaxing, they take you away from thinking too much. I’ve graduated (slightly) from using toilet roll insides and cereal boxes, but most of these ideas are still things that don’t require a lot of skill (unless you make sophisticated versions of them, which is an option) and that you can also do if desired / required with offspring or small relatives to keep them entertained on rainy days.
