Shopping = Good Health

   
So I was reading an interesting article this weekend on Women's Health Mag. that says that shopping is good for your mental and physical health. Not that we needed another excuse to get our significant other to come with us to the mall. But according to researchers "it releases mood-lifting endorphins, boosts your immune system, keeps your brain nimble, and even fulfills basic social needs."

If you're on a budget and can't go shopping all the time (like most of us are) even window shopping releases feel-good chemicals in your brain. They say this happens because shopping is associated with "increased activity in a part of the brain that has been linked to pleasure and positive thinking." So on that note, I guess I'm off to go stimulate my brain cells.
