Top 10 Christmas Gifts for Her
Looking for some Christmas gift ideas? Today we are looking at gifts for women. The Post Office Shop has a superb selection for all the women in your family. Here are a few suggestions.
Christmas Shopping, A Marathon not a Sprint
As we get prepared for the Christmas shopping frenzy, new research finds that Christmas shopping causes the same pressure as running a marathon! In a study of 100 people, participants experienced an increase in their heart rate of 33%. For 88% involved in the study their heartbeat went over 100 beats per minute.
Whether shopping on the high street or online, it apparently takes just 32 minutes before we experience the “wall of disenchantment.” Our initial joy at the prospect of buying for our friends and loved ones soon turns to worry and anxiety.
