New research finds that becoming more confident in the kitchen is good for your mental health and can make you happier!
According to the study, participants who took a seven-week healthy cooking class showed improvements in mental health, overall health and general wellbeing, compared to the group who didn’t take the class.
Study authors point out that participants’ mental health typically improved despite most of their diets not changing much after the classes. Lead researcher Dr. Joanna Rees concludes, “This suggests a link between cooking confidence and satisfaction around cooking, and mental health benefits.”
