Shopping for Hats – a Form of Exercise

Men's Leather Cap - The Greek Fisherman at

Research shows that the average woman burns 48,000 calories a year by shopping, walking some 154 miles in search of a good deal (men cover about half that distance). Naturally, retailers want you to shop til you drop — as a form of exercise and healthy lifestyle.

However, at least one reader of the article in Britain’s Daily Mail Reporter dismisses the idea as being a far too pricey method of weight reduction. He suggests that if you are interested in burning calories, maybe walking or biking to the mall (instead of driving) will not only keep you from dropping excessive amounts of cash while you lose weight but is even a nod towards an environmentally-responsible lifestyle.

I’d go one better.

Sit in front of your computer and shop for your hats, apparel and accessories online. Skip the crowds, cashiers and line-ups altogether: it’s stress-free shopping that’s good for the earth and leaves you with more time to ride your bike (or not).
