Frequent shopping linked to longer lifespan

Wellington, Dec 08 : A new study has revealed that shopaholics who like a bit of daily retail therapy are likelier to live longer than people who open their wallets only once a week.


The research by University of Auckland has liked shopping to a longer lifespan, Stuff.co.nz reported.

Researcher Janine Wiles, who looked at almost 2000 elderly Taiwanese, said people who are shopping frequently are quite likely having lots of social contact, which is also strongly associated with well-being.

Meanwhile, Massey University lecturer Juliana Mansvelt said another benefit may come from the physical activity of walking from store to store.

The study was published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
