  • Identify your triggering emotions: One of the most common reasons to overshop is to improve your mood. How do feel when you have an impulse?
  • Identify the needs connected to those feelings: If you're lonely, you probably need loving contact. If you're bored, you want stimulation and activity.
  • Try shopping alternatives: Think of an activity, instead of shopping, that will meet your need. Call a friend, take the dog for a walk or go the gym. It will help you take control of your life and your habit.
