Thirteen Forms of Retail Therapy

May 17, 2018

You probably think that people are at least in part joking when they suggest that shopping makes them feel better. You’re actually more likely to associate monetary transactions with buyer’s remorse. Chances are you generally believe that spending money is bad and saving money is good but when you think it over you realize that sometimes the former is good: when it improves your life.

These are some examples that transcend general materialism and/or hedonism:

Using (pricey) organic ingredients is a healthful way to use your cash if you can afford to do so because you are what you eat.

Makeovers

Procedures like dental whitening and cosmetic surgery are superficial and are usually costly but can increase your self-esteem profoundly.

Medicine

Medical appointments and prescriptions can be a pain but as they say health is wealth and you’re worth it.

Philanthropy

Charitable donations are not entirely selfless because donating makes you feel good, especially when the cause hits close to home.

Preparations

You’re more likely to succeed if you prepare for success: e.g., you’re trying to lose weight so you buy smaller clothes.

Presents

Some people say giving is the greatest gift of all since buying things for other people is pleasurable and provides you with good karma.

Professional Tools

Purchasing products like computers advances your career by enhancing your productivity bequeathing happiness.

Relocation

As you know you can take a vacation in order to rest and relax but you could also move to a new city and reinvent yourself.

Spiritual Paraphernalia

If you’re a person of faith you can acquire sacred objects like amulets, incense and prayer rugs.

Therapeutic Gear

Depending on your interests you can buy items needed for healing modalities like aromatherapy, art therapy and homeopathy.

Transportation

You can heighten your sense of agency by buying a new bike, skateboard, motorcycle, etc.

Retail therapy is real and you’re utilizing it any time you invest in a better life.
