The Psychological Benefit Of Cooking For Other People


In this fast-paced life, it’s hard to find the time to cook, especially if you’re feeding a family. 

Performing an act for another human being, like cooking for them, is a form of altruism

Cooking is a form of nurturing.

“Giving to others fills us in so many ways,”explained Michal AviShai, a culinary arts therapist who has an MA in art therapy from Lesley College. 

Cooking can create bonds.

“It’s a very intimate activity. And providing them with something that they potentially need, you’re really showing them that they have your support, your love, your backing, and that’s the kind of thing that really, really promotes well being, positive growth and closeness within relationships,” elaborated Riccio.

Cooking is a form of self-care.

The actual act of making sustenance for yourself and taking the time to feed your body is significant.
