According to a professional baker John L. Haber of Show Cookies from Habey’s Kitchen, he agrees that baking can be a way to de-stress. Haber creates, aside from other things, amazing bespoke cookies for a lot of Broadway shows. He says that although his baking can involve the stress of deadlines and large quantities of cookies and sweet goods, he does find creating a new cookie to be a stress reliever and form of relaxation. He adds that “for the normal person, baking is a wonderful activity to relieve anxiety and tension. Doing something creative, working with your hands, and focusing on the activity keeps your mind off other things that might be distracting or bothering you. It stimulates all the senses.”
