Weekend Baking Rises As An Antidote To Rising Anxiety Levels

December 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Time-strapped Millennials are known somewhat infamously for a lack of interest in “things kitchen.” Meaning, of course, that they’re “less likely to come home every night in time to roast a chicken instead of ordering takeout.” But that trend has given rise to another phenomenon: an upsurge in weekend baking. Many hard-working Millennials have turned to weekend baking as “a salve for the ambient anxiety of being alive in 2018,” because baking actually can be really relaxing. Forty percent of Americans report feeling more anxious in 2018 than they did in 2017.  Baking is a particularly effective activity for those whose professional lives exist mostly in the abstract. Baking forces a person to put down the phone, get your hands dirty, and pay close attention to what you're doing – activities that directly affect mood, like meditation and breathing exercises.[Image Credit: © David Greenwood-Haigh from Pixabay]
