Your mind power can benefit from a fun day shopping just as much as you do. Even if you pass on all the items you consider purchasing, you can still benefit mentally from a day of browsing. There are three different aspects of a shopping trip that can benefit your mind: the social stimulus of being around a large group of people, partaking in an activity you enjoy, and deciding what to try on and what to buy.
Many believe that when you are around many people at the same time, you are able to feed off of one another in certain ways. Your subconscious quietly expands and joins with the collective unconscious within the small area. While there may not be an excess of evidence to favor this theory, believing it to be true can enhance your mind power. While shopping around, you may select similar items to those around you, even if you would not normally choose such a piece. If you try on a shirt that does not meet your typical aesthetic to selecting a book or CD from a stranger’s recommendation, you are likely experiencing influence from the collective unconscious, which is only going to boost your mind power.
If you are not a fan of spending a day at the mall or other shopping arena, you will not enjoy the time you spend sorting through a store’s wares. For those who love nothing more than to spend their days bargain hunting can attest to the joy they receive from a good deal. Whether your shopping budget is low or high, if you like to go shopping, doing it can boost your mind power. It could even become a sort of meditation for some, depending how adept you are at flitting through sales racks.
When you try something on or decide to buy it, you can think of it as a puzzle, not unlike a crossword or other physical puzzle that helps build upon your mind power. Fashion experts have long discussed the importance of buying good pieces that can help build a strong wardrobe. While out shopping you might encounter a clothing item you love. You can then build upon your mind power by mentally going through your closet and thinking about what you could wear with it and what would look good with it. This will assist you in your decision to buy or not to buy while strengthening your mind power.
With these three steps, you can further develop your mental prowess while doing something fun at the same time. Enjoy your shopping experience even more while building your mind power.
