How can you set yourself up for success at the mall? Try these tips from Dr. Sari Shepphird, a psychologist based in L.A.
1. Keep it fun and diffuse anxiety by inviting a friend and going for coffee first. Or go for a walk or run together to get those post-workout endorphins.
2. Instead of focusing on your perceived flaws while you’re trying on clothes, focus only on finding clothes that accentuate your favorite features. Beeline for wrap dresses that hug your curves. Search for the right color blouse that brings out your eye color.
3. If you’re PMS-ing, postpone your shopping trip. Even if you miss a sale, you’ll save your sanity!
