Self-care comes in many forms, and although cooking might not seem like the first thing that you think of when talking about self care, cooking for yourself and making yourself food that you love can absolutely be a part of your self care routine. Whether you already love to cook or you are brand new and learning your way around the kitchen, you can make cooking the ultimate act of self care whenever you feel ready to do so. Here are a few reasons why cooking is the ultimate self care act.

1.  Nourishing Your Body

One of the primary reasons, and one of the most obvious ones, that cooking can be the ultimate self care act is because it allows you to fully nourish your body with foods that fill you up and provide nutrition. At the end of the day, everybody needs to eat. Cooking for yourself simply sets that apart as an additional, intentional act to feed your body and spirit. Whether you lean more towards junk food or healthy eats, the act of nourishing your body is not about specific calorie counts. Instead, it’s about making sure that you feel full and energized.

2.  Making Comfort Food

As mentioned above, whether you make junk food or healthy food doesn’t matter as much as you might think when it comes to providing yourself with the care that you need. In fact, it can vary from person to person or from day to day. That being said, some people find a great deal of comfort and care and making their old favorite comfort food dishes. If this sounds like a great evening in to you, make it a part of your regular self care routine.
