Frux Home and Yard comments on using cooking to ease anxiety and stress levels.
Jul 02, 2018 /prREACH/ -- Anxiety is a nervous disorder characterized by a state of excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behavior or panic attacks. Anxiety disorders affect 18.1 percent of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between the ages of 18 to 54). Although cooking is not a cure for anxiety and people with anxiety should seek immediate professional help, cooking can provide some temporary relief.
Frux Home and Yard provides high-quality home entertaining and celebration supplies at affordable prices. They also feature a website with blog posts and articles designed to help their readers plan weddings, themed parties, purchase the best mother’s day gifts, create fun DIY’s and most recently, help provide ease for anxiety with cooking.
Their recent article states that cooking is one way of meditating while one chops, whisks and stirs. Furthermore, it talks about how psychology refers to cooking as a behavioral action because one has to engage and be mentally present so that a good meal is prepared. The process of tasting, judging if it is ready and increasing or lowering heat means that one is concentrating on cooking and nothing else. As a result, it works as a distraction and helps to relieve stress and anxiety.
Another benefit to cooking Frux Home and Yard mentions is that it can be a way to lower blood pressure. The cooker can control the amount of sodium intake, unlike eating out where the meal has already been prepared with unknown amounts of sodium.
For all bakers and cooks, Frux Home and Yard suggests purchasing a pair of Sili-Mitts silicone oven mitts available on Amazon.com. The oven mitts feature extra long length convenience to protect the user's forearms from steam and hot water burns. The outer layer of the oven mitts is entirely waterproof, with just warm water and soap, they come clean in minutes which can make cooking even easier.
