I cant do it. On my down days, when im low, feeling blue, feeling like not much good to anyone or anything.. the last thing i want to do is cook.
The last thing i want to do is eat healthy and take care of myself. Ill be honest, on my bad days the thought of getting out of bed is hard enough!! But we all go through a little rough sometimes right?
I read a study recently that said the smell of bread makes a sad person feel 10% happier. 10%!!
A few years back i used to start at work in a hotel at 8am and make 150 rolls every Sunday for lunchtime. They had to be the same size and shape and baked on part cooked and part steamed. It took me hours and quite often they would get wasted or thrown away. That was stressful. That wasn’t exactly what im talking about here!! Haha
the article also said that baking is therapeutic. The act of producing something with little to no stress creates a greater sense of acheivement without a fear of failure. That’s what i need. When im sad – 100% acheivement 0% failure.
So im gonna try it out. Next time i have a bummer of a day – im gonna bake..bread!! Hopefully it will make me 110% happier
