‘5 Reasons Baking Is Good For Mental Health’ –   from our friends at http://www.Goodnet.org 

… some  quips from the Goodnet article: 

Any activity which takes your whole attention – especially if it’s simple and repetitive – can have a calming, meditative quality.

The feel of the flour, the sound of the blender, and of course the smell of the delectable final product – all these experiences stimulate the senses,  which in turn increases feel-good endorphins.

Psychologists have found a strong connection  between creative expression and overall well being…

Eating Cookies Has Health Benefits

Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies contain Fiber, Vitamins and Minerals that our bodies need.  

FIBER:  The oats in an oatmeal cookie contain soluble fiber, which reduces your bad cholesterol level and decreases your risk of heart disease. Soluble fiber can also help regulate your blood sugar levels, according to MayoClinic.com.*

VITAMINS:  A 1-ounce oatmeal cookie contains folate (vitamin B) which helps you make energy and lowers the risk of certain birth defects, vitamin A for healthy eyes and vitamin K, which clots your blood. *

MINERALS: The most notable mineral you’ll get from an oatmeal cookie is iron. Iron plays a role in the formation of red blood cells and can also protect your immune system. The same oatmeal cookie delivers small amounts of potassium, which you need for healthy muscles, as well as zinc, which aids in wound healing.*

Team Building Activity That Doesn’t Suck

Prepping for a Decorating Party2

In terms of corporate development, team-building exercises are important not for the immediate experience of the activities performed by the team, but also for the group skills, communication and bonding that result.

But team building at work can be tricky, especially when typical team building activities tend to induce more eye rolls among teammates than high-fives.

Consider a Cookie Decorating Team Building Exercise!  Not only will the participants be able to work together, test their skills, and have a bit of healthy competition… they will get to take home their beautiful finished products! (if there are any uneaten by that time)
