Baking for Wellbeing.
Baking for Wellbeing courses bring people together to improve wellbeing and build community while learning a new skill. Led by Mark Ahier, the courses are for all abilities from complete novices to the more experienced to bake together in a fun and inclusive environment.
I’m Mark, I live in Wymondham and I run Baking for Wellbeing!
I have a strong interest in mental health, having had episodes of anxiety and depression throughout my adult life. I’ve had lots of support over the years and have learnt a lot about myself and how to manage my mental health.
One of the things that helps me is baking. At my lowest, I had very little confidence so even shopping was a struggle. Having a list of ingredients and instructions to follow really helped. As I baked, my confidence grew. I found anything I can lose myself in helps me to relax. Learning a new skill showed me that I could change how I was thinking. I now experiment a bit more in my baking. It doesn’t always go right but I’ve learnt that doesn’t matter!
