Talk about Morale and Morale Expectations and how they relate to stress. Morale can be changed through these ways:

Room Bonuses

- Mess Hall +3 (aim for cycle 5-10)
- Great Hall +6 (aim for cycle 20)
- Bedroom +2

Food

Bad food is -1
Best food is +16
BBQ also is +16 and gives a stress lowering buff called soul food

early game I suggest:

cooked mush bar (if required but try to avoid)
meallice cooked into liceloaf
mushrooms cooked
BBQ
grissle berry

Mid to late Game:

stuffed berry
frost bun (from wild sleet wheat)
pepper bread (from wild sleet wheat)

Breaks

2 shifts of downtime is +1 morale
3 shifts of downtime is +2 morale
4 shifts of downtime is +3 morale
5 shifts of downtime is +4 morale (the max)

Showering is +3

Social Interactions

- social chitchat +1

Decor

paintings, sculptures and metal tiles are easy ways to get decor
