Does the season end sale make you go gaga! Or the oversized figure of flat 50% off makes you go insomniac? Do you keep the online shopping websites go incognito while at work or your salary seems too less for the shopping list you have prepared? Well if all these questions pop your eyes out with wonder then Lady! You are a shopaholic.
If you are still wondering how do we know so much about you? Then stay glued we will flush some more signs that will prove that you are addicted to shopping.
It incites your happiness hormone:
Ever felt the endorphin levels jump out when you see a mannequin in a shopping window and all you do is walk towards the shop, hold it and feel like crying out loud, then woman you are definitely on the verge of becoming a shopping addict. If such is not the case with you and you still walk past the window with the euphoric feeling inside then you still are in a better condition.
If it has become a stress buster:
Had a break-up or there was too much pressure at work? Are those electric bills surging up your anger hormones? But the only relief you prefer from such pressure is shopping then sadly you are shopaholic.
Swiping a card is music to your ears:
If you love the sound of a card being swiped and the feeling of owning those red boots you were waiting for so long makes you happy. If the bill of the credit card is not a problem compared to the winter sale you rushed in to buy the exclusive designer jacket, then this is it you are addicted.
Asked not to shop anymore:
If your mother, husband or friends have constantly being urging you stop shopping anymore. If they pull you the moment you stop by a shopping window and you sneak later to get the display dress, then rest assured you are Shopaholic!
You sneak around from people you know, just to shop:
If you act like Sherlock Holmes every time you are out for shopping, hoping that nobody recognizes you. If the pressure of spending too much makes your family ask for reasons then check with a shopaholic addiction group.
Savings? What is that supposed to mean?
If savings was the last word you have heard in your life then it is better you get yourself checked. Because you are spending too much and you need to stop!
Shopping is the priority in your life:
If you have started to take every other discussion to the point of shopping chats only! If the people around have started to ignore you because all you now talk about is the best shop, sale, winter collection, summer dress or credit card bill then almighty save you. You are a shopaholic!
There is not a single person in this earth that doesn’t love to shop. But shop till you drop is not something a wise person would do. If you can relate with the above signs then it is high time to get things under control. Like any other addiction shopping addiction is not a good thing at all.
Vineeta Sinha, the owner and president of Vineeta Constructions Co. is a writer and blogger at heart. An economics graduate, the talented writer has been in the writing industry for years. When asked about how she manages the two very different professions, she says, “Construction business is what me and my husband who is a civil engineer dreamt of together and I am glad we succeeded but writing is something I have been doing years before I stepped into the construction world. I was very young when I realized that there was a hidden passion for writing in me and I unveiled it through my school magazine for the very first time and there has been no looking back since then. Though construction contributes more in running my world, writing is something that completes me.”
