H-Factor Where Is Your Heart


WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? HAPPINESS AND SHOPPING BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen

No doubt you’ve thought about your shopping for the holidays. You may have even begun getting gifts for friends and family already. Some people love to shop, while others dread it. It all depends on your attitude.

If you are feeling good and want to have a good time, then you are likely to enjoy your shopping trip. On the other hand, if you are not feeling well, are stressed and in a bad mood, then the opposite is likely true.

Looking ahead to the holidays, it has been said many times that it is the most wonderful time of the year. It can be – it all goes back to asking yourself. ‘How am I going to look at this shopping trip? Am I going to approach it positively or negatively?’

Whether you are shopping with friends or alone, take time to enjoy the experience. Joy from shopping can come from simple enjoyment, not whether you bought something. Not everyone feels this way, but you will be happier if you try to approach shopping this way.

Is shopping and the money you spend worth going into debt? Consider creating, donating on behalf of a loved one or baking a gift from the heart.

What about the crowds at the mall? What about the long lines at the store? These are times that can be stressful for people, leading some to avoid malls altogether when it comes to holiday shopping. Some people even feel sick thinking about it. The next time you are anxious about shopping, no matter what time of year, just take a moment for yourself. Remember that it can be a positive experience.

Happy shopping!
