Shopping Is Good For You

Being a shopaholic might do some damage to your checking account, but it may do you good in the long run! According to a new study, people who take regular shopping trips live longer than those who don’t.  And it’s not just the ladies- surprisingly, the benefits are even greater for men than women!  The study found that the social aspect of a shopping experience- interacting with others and spending time with friends- has a positive impact on mental health.  This seems like as good a reason as any to justify buying yet another pair of shoes.
