We are so excited to welcome you to the Unity Social Kitchen Blog, where each week we will be sharing more than just food from the Kitchen.
‘That’s one of the interesting things about cooking, it’s not just food. If you look at all the psychological benefits, there’s a cumulative effect: it’s about self-care, it’s about taking care of others, it’s physical care, it’s mindfulness, as well as meeting basic needs , so you can do a lot more, with the basic ingredients required for cooking a meal for yourself or for others,”
If aren’t sure where to start, and don’t expect to be dizzyingly brilliant in the kitchen at your first attempt That’s where we at the Unity Social Kitchen come in, all you have to do is find the time to incorporate cooking into your life and remember…
- It Gives You A Reward At The End
- The Creativity Makes You Feel Good
- It Improves Your Quality of Life
- It Gets You into the “Flow”
- The Altruism of Cooking For Others Is Good For You
- It Saves Money
- You’re helping Your Brain Stay Healthy
Although the skill of cooking might take practice: Cooking brings us together, and creates communities ― and with community comes feelings of connection and happiness.
Next Time….. Meet the Team and our plans for workshops and ‘The Sunday Social’
Cook together, with a side order of community, connection and conversation!
