“Cooking is seen by most people as an unavoidable common daily chore, studies have shown that cooking can improve our mental health significantly“–Paul Ebeling

According to an article in the Journal of Positive Psychology, people, that cook, write, draw, sing and do other related activities tend to live happier than others who do not.

If you cook you cannot do it without using your creativity to get the desired results. And that bit of creativity can significantly enhance your mental wellbeing.

When cooking for yourself and/or others, you have to set a goal and then work to achieve it. This set of actions falls within a form of therapy that is called behavioral activation.

Often applied for the treatment of anxiety and depression, behavioral action ensures that you focus on the reward that you are bound to receive after an action.

By cooking regularly, behavioral activation can assist you to be a better goal-oriented individual that does not procrastinate. This will give you a sense of accomplishment.

Plus, note that the process of preparing the meals can also improve your mental wellbeing as it makes you feel useful not only to yourself but to the people around you. Such a sense of achievement can be great for your mental health.

To develop a good relationship with food, you need to start cooking more. This will create a positive mentality about food.

Based on the findings, when you learn how to cook, your culinary skills and confidence increases. This is a result of the personal belief that you will have when there is a need for you to cook anywhere.

That confidence transcends your connection with food as it can affect other aspects of your life. In fact, cooking can be helpful for you to connect with friends, family, and other people.

Overall, my experience is that cooking your own Real food can play a Key role in helping to lead a healthier life. It has been shown that people who cook their own food at home eat better and healthier meals than those who do not.

Add to that, when you eat good food regularly, your gastrointestinal tract will synthesize lots of serotonin, which is an important neurotransmitter for managing your mood and reducing pain.

So, the next time you are preparing or cooking food, know that you are taking actions that can help you boost your mental health.

So, if you do not know how to cook, consider learning how to Now.

Eat healthy, Be healthy, Live lively
