Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.

Stress is a normal part of life. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts

“Cooking is a great de-stresser because it serves as a creative outlet,” says Debbie Mandel, author of “Addicted to Stress.”  “And while stress can numb your senses, cooking activates them. It’s a sensory experience with aroma, taste, touch, visual delight and even sizzling sound.”

Sometimes, food stress comes from trying to cook when you really don’t have time to cook. The whole process of cooking is rushed and unpleasant

These are some views people made when asked why they perceive cooking incredibly stressful.

‘I’ve been told that I’m a pretty good cook, but cooking is stressful for me, because it is such a labor intensive activity. You need to keep track of the different stages – shopping, storing, retrieving and preparing the ingredients; the different cooking stages, and the cleanup associated with the utensils, cooking dishes, the cooking area as well as of the utensils used to serve and eat the food.

‘Cooking is stressful because it’s exhausting. It takes an enormous amount of energy and time when I would rather be doing literally anything else’.

“I sometimes have to close from work to cook fresh meals for my husband every day. It really stressful when you are doing a whole lot without any help”

“Everything involving energy is stressful and cooking is one. You can be a good cook, but sometimes you don’t feel like cooking’

Cooking does take time and effort – cooking every meal is a big deal, and if you are anywhere close to that, you owe yourself a huge pat on the back for making it work. But most often people perceive cooking to be incredibly stressful.
