Sci­en­tists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Michi­gan have exper­i­men­tal­ly proven that dur­ing a shop­ping trip, most women expe­ri­ence a sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment in mood. More­over, those of the vis­i­tors to the shop­ping cen­ters who only looked at the dis­played goods remained rel­a­tive­ly calm, but the women who tried on clothes, shoes or jew­el­ry felt three times hap­pi­er.

More­over, the researchers are con­fi­dent that the state of a woman dur­ing shop­ping is com­pa­ra­ble to sex­u­al arousal. This was con­firmed by an exper­i­ment in which one group of women went shop­ping, while the oth­er watched an erot­ic tape. The devices record­ed almost the same lev­els of arousal among shopa­holics and cinephiles.

But doc­tors con­sid­er shop­ping one of the mod­ern types of phys­i­cal activ­i­ty and rec­om­mend women not to give up shop­ping. Experts have cal­cu­lat­ed that in 3 hours of shop­ping a woman los­es about 500 calo­ries, and dur­ing the year she “winds” in shop­ping cen­ters and mar­kets an aver­age of 154 km.

Experts advise women not to give up such a pleas­ant pas­time as shop­ping, but they advise to fol­low the mea­sure so that shop­ping trips do not replace oth­er joys of life.
