Shop ’till you smile

Feeling down? Retail therapy may just be the perfect way to improve your mood. While women have turned to shopping as a pick-me-up for years, research is beginning to show that shopping can be a legitimate mood changer. About 64% of women admit to shopping when they are having a bad day.  A study done by the University of Michigan supports their decision and found that shopping after watching a sad movie clip improved participants’ moods. So hitting the mall can really be beneficial to your health. Just make sure you don’t lighten your wallet too much and stick to low-budget items so the receipt doesn’t make you frown later.
