Chocolate is full of lovely natural substances that calm you down, make you happy and improve your mental well being !
So here are some to help you indulge, share it with friends ,and keep it in perspective
1 Try a different chocolate every week for a year.
2 Buy a little notebook especially for choccy notes
3 Write down your own description of what it smells and tastes like .To do this unwrap slowly and smell the aroma. Keep your eyes shut . Does it remind you of anything in the past …write it down !!
4 Take a small square and let it melt on your tongue . Eyes closed ..again think what it reminds you of.
5 Wrap up the bar … keep it safe for 6
6 Repeat the exercise the following day …have your memories changed ?
7 Invite 4 friends to do the same exercise over a coffee .
8 Make them all try the exercise above and tell you what it made them think about .
9 Make a list of chocolate from your past , then try this again !!
10 Find a new chocolate to share once a month …. google it or find a local choc shop to help Cocoa in Sheffield and the Chocolate Bar Sheffield sell lots of different flavours and the retro ones .
Some of my faves from the past to try are Caramac, Bournville,Dairy Milk, Flake, Frys Turkish delight, Yorkie, Galaxy and from today Green and Blacks , Rococo,Lindor and Chilli chocolate.
