Research shows there may be beneficial effects to baking, like less stress, emotion management and social connection.
Spending time in the kitchen is a kind of self-care that's desperately needed during the long months of isolation.
Many of us instinctively know that a few hours in the kitchen gathering and chopping ingredients and getting creative can make us feel better.
Accomplishing small, creative tasks can make us feel happier. One study found that participants reported more positive emotions when they took on creative pursuits.
The simple mechanics of cooking can make the activity appealing and stimulate crucial brain centres. Researchers found that repetitive behaviours like chopping or kneading can decrease stress and anxiety.
Cooking on your own can increase the feeling of social interaction, partly from the people you're feeding. Altruism and positive behaviours like being kind can contribute to our wellbeing.
Cooking is soothing and empowering as you can be present in the moment. There is routine and a quietness about reading a recipe, and putting together a dish while you use your senses, smelling the aromas coming together.
With baking, you can do something that makes you have more control. You can read something, and in 30 minutes, you'll end up with a product that feels wonderfully satisfying.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
