CULINARY THERAPY WITH CELEBRITY CHEF JOJO
World Teen Mental Wellness Day is observed across the globe on March 2 every year. It is a day that aims to raise awareness about the mental health issues that teenagers deal with. This Day is about making efforts to educate everyone and destigmatize something that is
becoming increasingly common.
For World Teen Mental Wellness Day (March 2nd), and as often as possible, JoJo also wants adults to invite youth to join them in the kitchen to cook some new recipes that she just published. Click the link below to check them out!!
Cooking therapy/culinary therapy has been defined by some experts as therapeutic technique that uses arts, cooking, gastronomy, and an individual’s personal, cultural, and familial relationship with food to
address emotional and psychological problems.” Preparing food is activity is one that you can do at home, and
that can be incorporated into treatment plans at mental health clinics and therapist offices. Cooking and baking as a form of a stress relief is now recommended for people dealing with a wide range of
health conditions, including depression, anxiety, chronic stress, eating disorders, ADHD and addiction. How can cooking relieve stress? According to a 2018 review, some of the many ways in which cooking (and baking therapy too) can help to
reduce anxiety symptoms and perk up your mood include by giving you a sense of control, accomplishment and providing (for yourself and for whomever else you cook), while having a positive influence on socialization, self-esteem and
overall quality of life.
