This is the time of year when you can bake loads of cookies and nobody finds it awkward. On the contrary, people might even expect you to do it/have done it/will be doing it.
Baking cookies can be rewarding in different ways. Sure, you will be having self-baked cookies, which will always be a benefit. But baking cookies can also be a marvelous chance to get away from your screen, take a short break, and practise some awareness.
