    "Great channel for kitchen beginners like me. The food they make looks so elegant and at first you might think its impossible for you to make but if you continue watching, the step by step process makes everything looks so easy to make "


For some, cooking can be a strenuous activity. Batches of food that needs a lot of preparing, can be a burden — especially when you've only got two hands working. But did you know that cooking can actually benefit your mental health? We know it's fun to sit at home and watch the best Youtube cooking channels or cooking TV shows all day. But experts also say that people with mental health problems reduce stress, anxiety, and even relieve depression when cooking, that they're using it as therapy!

Culinary Therapy, or Kitchen Therapy involves activities related to cooking, and of course, cooking itself. When you're in the kitchen whipping up your next meal, the very process of peeling onions, chopping garlic, or washing meat, actually lets you practice mindfulness by focusing in the moment, which reduces stress. Secondly, for those with a wide imagination, cooking can be a creative outlet. Want to put a dash of chocolate shavings on that chicken you're searing? Go right ahead, the possibilities are endless! This lets you express yourself and up your confidence. In addition, cooking is a naturally rewarding experience. After your time hustling in the kitchen, and making the house smell oh so delicious, it's finally time to dig in and savor that food you've been working on. This makes a great-reward system that would make you say, "Hey look ma, I made it!" which is a powerful tool to boost self-esteem and happiness! Now, we're not saying this would work 100% for everyone and would cure you. But if you're feeling a little bummed out and want to try if this technique actually works, or if you just really want to get into cooking, there are tons of recipe apps that could teach you what and how to cook!
