Hello every 1. I love to cook when I'm upset out agitated. It calms me & puts my mind @ ease. Does any 1 else enjoy cooking for any reason?

 Usually if I'm upset I clean.

I love to cook when I am relaxed and not rushed.  I get a lot of satisfaction out of a well done dish.  It may sound weird, but I love to chop vegetables, it is almost therapeutic to me.  I know a lot of people who say exactly the opposite, that they hate all of the chopping!

I really enjoy the expressions on people's faces when they eat what I've made. Plus I actually really enjoy the actually cooking of the food as well. I don't know that I use it to calm down, but I do enjoy the movements that are required for cooking.  That I'm the only one in the kitchen, normally, while cooking. The satisfaction when things come together like I wanted them too.

I can't cook when I'm stressed. I clean when I'm stressed.

Quoting LadyBast:

I clean when I am made I cook when I have extra time and want to do it, it does calm me and my daughter helps so it is our time especially baking!

 I clean when I am angry, it really helps me calm down seeing everything fall back into their proper places.
