We all have our strengths, and cooking just might not be one of yours. However, we all need to nourish our bodies. My feeling is, why not have some fun while doing it? Let's get our happy on in our kitchen and dance!
A fun way to shift our mood while cooking is by turning up the music. Let go of any inhibitions, shake your hips, back away from the counter, and rock out. I've done this with my kids a million times. We turn on some Motown oldies music and dance in our kitchen. By moving your hips, you're actually releasing stuck energy. (I once learned from a craniosacral therapist that belly dancing actually releases stress.)
Our hips represent forward motion, so if you're feeling a bit stuck from your day, or perhaps about cooking, let the music move you. Do a few hip rollers, breathe, and feel whatever emotions and stress you might be experiencing slip away. Fire up your happy! It's that feel-good energy that we want infused into the food we make for ourselves, our families, and our friends. Encourage others to come dance with you in your kitchen. (Self-conscious non-dancers, no one is watching! This is the place to let it go!)
Happiness can be shared in the food we eat. As I share this food for thought about cooking, energy, and high-quality ingredients, explore ways that you can get juicy and find joy being in your kitchen. Bless your walls with a luscious vibrant color, light a sweet-smelling candle, and create a kitchen altar. Become the queen bee of your kitchen castle.
Happiness will lift your vibration and ultimately your energy to a whole new level. This amazing energy will nourish your body with the highest, most positive vibrations possible. Curry Girls Kitchen believes wholeheartedly that food IS love. No one will ever know what made him or her feel happy; they'll just go to bed feeling the good vibes.
