Retail Therapy - What Is It And Does It Work?

Retail therapy is the process of trying to cheer yourself up by buying yourself gifts or treats. It’s both an intentional and an impulsive action and it gets triggered when we are sad or depressed.

The self-regulation theory says that you are constantly trying to balance your emotions, so if your feeling of sadness can be offset by giving in to an impulse purchase, you may decide to do it.

Studies show that while it does work with cheering people up, it may not work with stronger emotions, such as anger, or loneliness.
