Ladies, all kinds of shopping. Just going to the grocery store or CVS will extend your life according to research! The study was published April 6th in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. "Shopping captures several dimensions of personal well-being, health and security as well as contributing to the community’s cohesiveness and economy and may represent or actually confer increased longevity," researchers wrote in the study." But it's also possible that shopping itself could improve health by ensuring a good supply of food for a healthy diet, ensuring exercise by walking around, and providing social interaction and companionship in the form of shopping buddies, the study said.
As if we really needed another excuse to go shopping!
