Let’s set the record straight: A little retail therapy never hurt anyone. Shopping is, in fact, good for you. Here are a few reasons why:

For starters, research says a trip to your favorite shop can benefit both your mental and physical health. After all, it’s been proven that shopping induces the release of endorphins, the same hormones responsible for the joy you get from laughing, falling in love, or devouring a delicious meal. Plus, it’s good cardio. According to a U.K. study, women can burn as much as 48,000 calories a year from all the walking and lifting that comes with bargain-hunting. Additionally, like any other hobby, shopping can keep your mind sharp. Browsing through racks, shelves, and inspecting prices engages your brain, helping improve your memory and thinking skills.
