Actually preparing our own dinner gives us the possibility to reduce stress levels, to share a moment with the family and to know what we are eating. I know, it takes patience, but preparing the ingredients,  cutting, chopping, slicing  are the ideal activities for relieve your stress. Let yourself be carried by these simple acts and your mood will change totally. Cooking is very relaxing if you don’t focus too much on the final result, or the recipe. Just choose simple dishes, or let be inspired by what you have in your food shelves .

I know that sometimes it can be a bit daunting but if you change your way of thinking about cooking you will feel the many benefits that you can obtain. Confucio said: “wherever you go go with all your heart”, well …. whatever you do do it with all your heart. Over the years I have realized  that I love cooking and I think  that it can be therapeutic too. When I’m particularly tired or restless or thoughtfully I cook and I concentrate in these simple acts, on flavors and fragrances and I forget concerns, problems or sadness. Cooking for wellness of the Mind, Body, and Spirit …… and a nervous system always balanced. Continue reading “(english) Chop food for stress relief”
