Shopping may be bad for your wallet, but it can be good for your health.

Actually, sinasabi ng ibang tao na ito ay therapeutic.

In fact, stress buster siya ni Jennylyn Mercado.

Sa previous interview nito sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), aniya, "Hindi naman ako yung sobrang into branded stuff.

"But I like shopping, kahit window shopping. Gusto ko yung tumitingin-tingin, 'tapos kapag hindi ko siya nakalimutan, babalikan ko, saka ko bibilhin."

Binanggit sa isang study sa United Kingdom na ang shopping activity sa mall for two and half hours results ay may average na 7,300 steps. Kongti na lang, maa-achieve na ang "10,000 steps per day" recommendation ng National Health Service ng England.

In a nutshell, shopping is good for your heath, but do it in moderation.

Huwag tularan si Rebecca Bloomwood sa movie na Confessions of a Shopaholic.

The minute you turn into a compulsive buyer, and has this uncontrollable desire to shop and overspend, retail therapy becomes a much bigger problem.

Shop because you need it, and your health counts on it. Get those endorphins, being happy is priceless!
