The gorgeous Carrie Bradshaw once said, “Shopping is my cardio”. In terms of the commoners it is ‘retail therapy’ for many. While there are a lot who consider it to be a ‘waste of time’, there are many who’d argue as it relaxes and calms them down. This fun ‘activity’ is often termed as ‘materialistic’ but then who said that materialism is only supposed to be shallow and mean? According to a recent study, shopping is actually great for one's physical and mental health. We’ve listed down the various reasons why shopping is great for your mental and physical health. 

 

Exercise

Imagine if someone told you to simply keep walking for a good 30 minutes, what would your immediate reaction be? You'd probably make a face and frown upon that thought. However, no one thinks twice before walking aimlessly skimming through all the stores in a mall. Walking for a good amount of time, carrying those shopping bags is enough exercise for your body and one that works best for it too. 

 

 

Takes your mind off things that's bothering you 

It is called retail therapy for a reason. If you're feeling extremely low and something is bothering you immensely then you must definitely step out for shopping. First up it takes off your mind from whatever is bothering you and secondly it makes you feel slightly better temporarily if not for as a whole. 

 

Makes you creatively more experimental 

When you go out to shop, you try on various clothes, accessories and shoes. You make your own combinations, be it in terms of pairing the clothing pieces or putting colors together. Your mind becomes open to things, patterns and there's a major creative wave that takes place in your head which helps you in life in general.     

 

 

Helps you perform better at work 

When your through with your shopping there is a sense of contentment that you have in your heart. You feel at peace. When such a happy and peaceful emotion takes over, you are able to perform better at work too. You dress up in your best clothes that you've shopped and that brings in more positivity. 

 

Boosts your self confidence

When you try different and various types of clothes, colours, silhouettes and cuts, all of this put together makes you feel more confident about yourself. You are more accepting towards your own self and this in turn boosts your confidence. 

 

 

Social bonding 

Shopping is best enjoyed when you step out with your clan, it is a joy like no other, when you do that, you start understanding your squad better. You understand their likes and dislikes, their tastes and it also makes your bonding much better. 

 

Shopping is more than just buying clothes. With Black Friday on and the whole Sale season coming up, we suggest that you step out with your friends and get some pretty clothes for yourself.
