Baking is a fantastic way to relax because it lowers stress chemicals like cortisol in addition to letting you release some of your frustrations onto your dough. Baking is a great way to express creativity; you can experiment with flavours and make one-of-a-kind cake designs. Baking is a deliberate and focused activity that requires a good deal of concentration. It can also help you stay calm and de-stress because it can divert your attention from other things for a short while.
