THOUGHTS | Retail Therapy Burns Calories

According to the Daily Mail from UK, they have got researches/ studies on calories that woman spent during their retail therapy, and the study reveals that having shopping sprees are good for health with women burning as many as 15,000 calories every year shopping.

You can see the news here for more details.

Since this study is just for United Kingdom, and probably people who lived there used to have cars, so that's why it's good for health, coz at least they walked instead of sitting inside the car, having air conditions on. But for Hong Kong, I am sure this is no shocking news to us, especially when you're those who loved to shop in Mong Kok and Causeway Bay. First, Hong Kong's summer is hot and humid like you're suffocating, I can guarantee you to sweat like you've just came our from the gym room. Secondly, private cars are not able to get in, since most of them are pedestrian streets now, and you will not be able to get a car park space, so no one will drive there. Thirdly, if you're going to the outdoor markets, you have to bargain for the prices, which costs you much energy. Lastly, you will keep eating during shopping, so you basically dont have to get a proper dinner. lol. Therefore, I guarantee you to lose calories during a shopping day.
