Have you ever seen that beautiful red dress hanging just one cashier away from your grasp and the comfort of your closet and imagine all the events you can wear it to? No? Then how about that sleek new phone that would look so very chic in your hand or in your next Instagram post? The act of shopping itself is a pleasurable action that stimulates our mood in a positive manner. Of course, that is until you check your bank account at the end of the month but let us not focus on this detail for the time being.

We can determine from the given fact that seeing something we like naturally perk our interest; hence, leading our mind towards a set of imagination that lessen the stress or anger you feel towards certain situations or people. In such broad cases you can simply whip out your phone and skim through shopping apps to take your mind of the matter that decrease your pleasure in an alarming manner.

It can be said and swiftly agreed upon that meaninglessly spending your money is a concerning factor but what if you were told that simply browsing and ‘wish listing’ the item is enough to cause you some peace of mind. The agenda of the case was not to overfill your home with items you would use only once and threw away. It was for you to take your mind off the topic that cause you distress for a simple minute or sixty so that you can relax until you can rationally deal with the situation.

I recall one girl, dear Josephine, speak of her fight with her friend. She described that she was so filled with anger and frustration that the words in her text book failed to reach her cognitive mind. Hence, she describes how she deals with the situation by browsing through some shopping apps until she calms down enough to study.

Shopping itself is proven to be a ‘retail-therapy’ that many people adopted to deal with the stress of existing in their everyday lives. So next time you feel like tearing your locks from your hair and stomping on it for good measure; try the therapy of seeking things you like in online shopping apps and let them whisk your mind to the imaginary land for a short while. It is better than accidentally doing or saying things you don’t mean, or so I’ve been told.
