If you’re the type of person who loves to bake, chances are you already know how good baking can be for your mental health. Measuring out the ingredients, and creating something delicious can soothe anxiety while making you feel like you’ve achieved something. Being able to create something that you know you and those you love will enjoy can be quite powerful.

In fact, a recent study showed that baking and CBT can help people grieve. The results of the study go so far as to suggest that baking can limit or even prevent some of the difficulties that are associated with grief.

Another study showed that teenagers who have the most cooking skills tend to have a better sense of well-being. 

One of the reasons why baking can be so helpful is that it gives you the opportunity to think about something else. With the ability to increase your self-esteem, help you to connect with others while helping to reduce anxiety, getting your bake on can prove to be very beneficial.

You don’t need to be the world’s best baker or attempt to bake anything elaborate. The mere process of baking something is enough to help with your mental health. If you get something delicious out of it, that’s an added bonus.
