Finding something that eases tension
When you’re under a lot of stress, your first challenge is to find something that will relax you and take your mind off whatever it is that put you in this state of mind.
Many men like to play golf, shoot pool or work out. Many women like arts & crafts, knitting, crochet, reading, writing or walking the family pet. Sometimes, a nice cool soft drink or a pleasant cup of coffee will do the trick with both genders.
Whatever it is we like to do in your spare time, we do to take our minds off the activities that cause stress and anxiety in our lives. The purpose of a hobby is to relax you. Many people find shopping to be just as effective therapy as golf, working out, crochet, reading, etc.
For many people, shopping is a part of their life. It’s a way to get away from it all.
Like all hobbies, shopping is like therapy. It won’t fix a problem. It will, however, relax you and temporarily help you forget the problem. Like other hobbies, Shopping serves its purpose.
