They don’t call it retail therapy for nothing. Shopping can actually make you happy， a study has found.
Treating yourself to something nice at the shops apparently has a ‘lasting positive impact on mood’ and leaves ‘few if any negative emotional side-effects’。
It is a find that will prompt a sigh of relief from Britain‘s ailing retailers.
Researchers conducted hundreds of interviews at shopping centres as well as asking shoppers to keep diaries of their shopping behaviour， moods and buys they regretted.
Those who said they were in a bad mood on their way into a shop were more likely to indulge in an impulse buy.
A total of 62 per cent said they had bought something to cheer themselves up while 28 per cent said they had indulged as a form of celebration.
