To much shopping could be bad for your mental health!
With all the back to school sales being shoved down our throats right now, it’s important that you take a minute and breathe before hitting up the stores.
New studies show that these big door-buster sales actually make people experience mental conditions like depression, anxiety and (our favorite) a loss of reality.
Researchers surveyed people who recently participated in a major sales event, such as Black Friday. According to the results, 20 percent of participants experienced high levels of anxiety during the shopping event, 23 percent experienced a change in their perception of reality known as “derealization,” and close to 50 percent felt a lack of empathy for other shoppers.
