Time in the kitchen is time well spent. It’s an opportunity to nourish your body, your family relationships and — you guessed it — your creativity. 

Every time you cook, you have an opportunity to be creative. Make your own original dish, combine new flavors, iterate on a recipe to make it your own. Letting creativity take hold in the kitchen can give you that boost you need for other pursuits!

Plus, there’s something about stepping away from your desk and using your hands to physically make something that can be quite soothing.

And — shameless self-promo here — if you have kids or grandkids and want to get inspired to teach them how to cook, may we recommend the Kiddos in the Kitchen podcast.
