Whether you're down because of the crappy weather, had an argument with your BFF or this time of year just isn't your fave, it's safe to say this season can bring on a whole range of emotions.
And while this won't cure your blues indefinitely, it will make you feel a little bit better.
According to the Journal of Positive Psychology, people who bake every now and again are much more relaxed compared to people who don't.
The researchers followed 658 people for two weeks. Each participant had to write a diary, which was read by the researchers afterwards. They discovered that each person who baked or cooked at the end of most days felt that they were "flourishing," and advancing in their personal growth.
The study's lead author author, Tamlin Conner said: "There is growing recognition in psychology research that creativity is associated with emotional functioning.
"However, most of this work focuses on how emotions benefit or hamper creativity, not whether creativity benefits or hampers emotional well-being.
"There is genuinely something very therapeutic about baking."
Whether you're going to take this on board or not, we have to admit, we'll be whipping up a few cupcakes next time we're feeling low.
