Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we need to go out on a massive shopping spree and spend thousands or hundreds or anything in order to feel happy!
NO! I DON’T WANT YOU TO SPEND ONE CENT IF YOU DON’T WANT!
In fact, I’m talking about something else entirely different. I’m talking about the experience of shopping in itself. I’m talking about how simple walking around a huge shopping centre for half an hour or even three hours can make us feel just that little bit better.
Lets look at why!
1. We can explore
There’s nothing like an adventure. More often than not we get caught up in routine. A shopping centre, if it is big enough, can be like a jungle. The more we wander, the more we see and the more we learn. Its a great way to break routine and discover something new.
2. It caters to our needs!
A shopping centre has everything we need! From the big brands to that random seat we see in most major shopping centres. Whatever problem we might be experiencing can be cured through a shopping centre. The range of items available makes it useful place to visit.
3. You will always see a FRIENDLY FACE 🙂
The next time your in a shopping centre I want you to walk into and then out of 10 different stores. I guarantee that in at least 9 of those stores you will be greeted by someone who is friendly and kind. Granted they are trying to sell something but at the same time, more often than not, you can find customer service providers who are genuinely interested in you and want to know how you are going! Its a great place to chat, befriend and socialize with people 🙂
4. It allows you to FANTASIZE!
Have you wondered why you daydream or fantasize? Its because it makes you feel good! When you walk into a shop and try on a shirt or just look at it, you are picturing/fantasizing how you would look in that shirt out in your everyday life. Such fantasy can have a huge impact upon your happiness! It allows you to escape your troubles and drift as you unburden yourself. And who knows you may even buy that shirt live that fantasy 😉
So what is a little thing we can do to make us feel better? HEAD TO THE SHOPS!
YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPEND A DIME! Just wander for a bit and I guarantee you will start to feel that little bit happier 🙂
