Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — When the world went into lockdown, everyone’s concern was on meeting their basic needs. This meant saying goodbye temporarily to fun chats at our favorite tea places, buying a new pair of high heels, or upgrading our style.

But while managing personal finances is the most logical thing to do, we forget to address the lockdown fatigue and anxiety brought by the pandemic. Left unchecked, it could lead to more problems, not only with our well-being but also with how we navigate these challenging times.

Here’s where an escape through a rewarding shopping experience could come in. Based on a 2020 research by the Monash Business School’s Consumer and Retail Studies, retail therapy does not only makes people happier immediately but can also combat lingering sadness. Simply put, shopping restores our sense of control.
