Want to start the new year with a lot of positivity so I have made a couple of resolutions that I would very much want to adhere to. One of these resolutions is to become more conscious of my health. I have decided to become healthier by eating the right food. I also want to hone my baking skills because I have read that baking has many mental health benefits such as relieving the symptoms of depression and anxiety. You are not just creating delicious food but it becomes a therapy for you, just like writing, painting, reading, singing, sports etc.
All the experiences of baking invigorates the senses and in the process increases endorphins which help relieve pain and induce feelings of pleasure or euphoria. Baking also enables you to control the ingredients that you are going to put in, thus making it healthier and better suited for your needs. It is likewise relaxing and the repetitive nature of it soothes negative thinking activities. It is really meditative. Baking also makes you more creative and makes you think more. Psychologists have found a strong connection between creative expression and overall well-being.
Probably the best thing about baking is that it makes other people happy. Surely, if you have made something delectable it would make the people eating your creations smile more. Furthermore, nourishing activities like baking and cooking certainly make one feel good. To incorporate within oneself this advantage, we should try more to bring our whole awareness to the healthy ingredients and all the effort that go into baking those goodies. Seeing your family and friends enjoying what you have baked and seemingly wanting more is a reward for all the hard work. Always be sure though that you only make healthy baked food. Do your research and find healthy baking recipes in the internet.
