Everyone needs a little retail therapy now and then.

When you get stressed out or are feeling a little sluggish in your body, hit the mall and find yourself an outfit or accessory that makes you feel confident. If you have a bad day at work, drive over to Target and browse the dollar asile for a bit.

Shopping – in moderation – can be really helpful when trying to put a bad day to rest. Sometimes, walking around the mall while scarfing down a soft pretzel is exactly what you need. Bringing along friends can also be a great form of retail therapy, as you can all complain about your crappy days together.
