Shopping is an activity that helps to release your stress, worries and tiredness. When you go out shopping, you find umpteen numbers of items that you can buy for yourself and others. There are varying effects shopping has on a person’s life. Some people may want to buy some essential item, some people have an addiction to buying things, and others enjoy it just as much as one would exercise or eat ice cream. Buying stuff can lead to a slight sense of relief, and there are people out there who just love it.
What is your shopping nature? What is shopping for you? Many people also love window shopping because they get the opportunity to see items from a distance, without spending any money. However, some people also enjoy shopping for their friends and family, and not just for themselves only – modest people! They buy shoes for boys in the family, some quirky t-shirts and other tiny accessories for girls. Some people derive happiness by seeing others happy, and hence they shop for people who are close to them emotionally!
Why shopping is a stress buster
Well, how good do you feel when you try out that new chiffon pink top in the market, making you look like a diva or that most delicate pair of heels that make you look glamorous? You feel good, don’t you? When you shop, you get relaxed; you enjoy being out and buying things that you love. Women shop because they feel good when they buy things they fancy. Shelling out money is not easy, but for a woman, it is a cakewalk. She does it so professionally, even in the low-budget month.
For instance, if a company announced that this month the salaries would get delayed by ten to fifteen days, men would be tensed as they have to pay their rents and they might not be able to party the last weekend of the month, which is really saddening! But, ladies, on the other hand, pick up their bags and enter the departmental stores and malls just to shop. So, the irony here is women are shopping because they are sad that the pay would be delayed.
The funny part- when women go out shopping, they just buy anything, they buy shoes for boys, a key chain for their car (even if they don’t have one!), home accessories, or some other unrequired things. But, again, this is the nature of a few women; not all have the same attitude when they go out shopping. Quite a bunch of women do window shopping and then finally resort to buying things that they need.
Shopping is a great stress reliever for women as it allows them to forget their worries and focus on the persuasive items in store windows or hanging up. For women, shopping cannot be a once-in-a-while activity. They never say ‘no’ to it. A shopping spree can serve as a reliable stress reliever, whether you buy clothes for the boys or home accessories.
