The Importance of Thankfulness

September 27, 2018

Thanksgiving is a time for reflection; a time to revisit the many reasons we are grateful for our lives and the many things, ideas, events, and people that pass through them.

What is thankfulness, and why is it so important?

Being thankful is the experience of a feeling that inspires us to appreciate everything and everyone in our lives, rather than taking them for granted. Gratitude means examining your life from the perspective of what you have, rather than what you have not.

There’s a reason why thankfulness should be practiced daily, instead of just on Thanksgiving: according to researchers at University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, people who practice gratitude and being thankful regularly are better people. They feel better about their lives, better about their relationships with others, and they also just physically feel better.

What are we thankful for?

At Rainy Dayz of Oregon, we’re thankful to God for many things! Here are a few of the items on the list of things we’re very thankful for:

  • Piles and piles of dirty fall leaves that little kids get to jump in with their Rainy Dayz Pull-Over Pants on!
  • Days that are filled with intermittent rain showers.
  • Bright, sunny fall days when the grass and all of the toys at the park are covered in a thick layer of dew!
  • Unexpected snowfall.
  • Wet, muddy trips to the pumpkin patch!
  • Fall yard and garden clean-up!

And, most importantly, we are thankful that our good old faithful rubber boots need a partner!

Fun Facts: Why Outdoor Play Matters!

Rain Gear by Rainy Dayz of Oregon

Have you ever wondered how much the times have changed? When you were a kid, most of your time was spent playing outside. But in this generation, the lure of technology often prevails, and our children miss out on the outdoor play that is an imperative part of their development! Just how bad are things? Read the following statistics from and think twice about how much time your children, students, and daycare kiddos spend indoors!

  • Surveyed adults stated that they spent more than 40% of their playtime outdoors. Today, children spend less than 10% of their free time outside!
  • Today, children spend an average of 5½ hours per day watching TV – 1 in 10 of these children watch more than four hours of TV each day!
  • Parents who responded to this survey indicated that 28% of children have no access to outdoor play at all.
  • Sixteen percent of children will use the park when the sun is out, but during the winter months, 44% of children don’t play outside at all.
  • Because they lack access to outdoor play and exercise, 28% of boys and 37% of girls are in the obese or overweight category while in grade school.

Don’t deprive your children of outdoor play. Rainy Dayz of Oregon has a solution! Try our play clothes and give your kiddos the freedom to play outside despite the weather. Look at our products today!
