A Sale A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!
Well call that music to my ears! (I actually enjoy a little shopping spree every now and then) Erin and I were talking about something her and Robert had mentioned this morning... A new study from Taiwan claims that a little bit of retail therapy can help you live longer. And who says money can't buy happiness???
Researchers followed about 2000 men and women over the age of 65 and concluded that going shopping could improve life expectancy by about 20%. Plus, men benefited more than the women.
They also concluded that you didn't have to actually buy anything... Just the act of going out window shopping was good enough. They believe it has more to do with actually doing a physical activity and socializing more than anything else.
But what a perfect excuse to use next time we're headed to the Boardwalk or down Youree... We are NOT shopping... We're keeping down the cost of healthcare!
