Shopping can help in relieving the stress of a person. After doing the hardships of many days, a person wants to reward himself with his or her favorite things like favorite clothes, shoes, food, etc. Shopping has become a hobby for affluent people, but one should not spend lavishly on unnecessary things. Instead, they can buy things for others, especially the needy ones. Shopping can be fruitful if you buy anything productive for you.
Instead of saving money, people can invest the same in gold or things which can give benefit for a long time. As there must be a proper balance in life, one should do things for entertainment and relaxation as well. To remain motivated in life, one should give some kind of reward to oneself as one cannot continuously work like a machine. He or she must get time for entertainment and relaxation activities also.
Most shopping is done by people at festivals. Diwali is the most significant festival for Indians, and they do a lot of shopping for Diwali long before the important day. Nowadays, technology has made shopping so easy that people can purchase anything online and can even make payments online, so one should make use of this technology for their benefits. There are other reasons too because of which people should do online shopping this Diwali, and the reasons are mentioned below.
For maintaining social distancing
Diwali is about to come, so you will have to start your shopping several days before Diwali. As you are aware of the spread of the disease of covid19, you should try to do most of your shopping online for maintaining social distancing. When you visit the market, you can unintentionally touch the things and can touch others for which you will remain worried about getting the disease.
There can be a crowd on the day of Diwali, and you cannot judge from the face of a person whether he is suffering from the disease or not, so it is better to take precautions and try to avoid as much physical contact as you can. In addition, you can send online Diwali gifts to friends, relatives, or people who are living away from your house and can greet them through video calling, instead of visiting them. They all are aware of the circumstances, so they would not mind.
For buying things for which you can feel embarrassed in the market
Some people feel shy to express their needs to shopkeepers in front of others. There are many products of women for which they sometimes hesitate to purchase from the market like undergarments. Therefore they should look for these products in online stores.
For buying things which do not require size measurement
They do the shopping of multiple things, and there are many things for which size measurement is not required; hence they can easily do these things online. Some people are afraid to buy clothes because they feel afraid about the size and the stuff of clothes. What if the pair of jeans I have ordered does not fit for me? What if I get lint on clothes that I am going to buy from an online shopping site? All these questions come across their minds whenever they think of buying clothes online. However, they can do online shopping for things like sweets, cakes, flowers, plants, sculptures, etc.
For reducing traffic on roads
Especially during festive seasons, shopkeepers in India increase the size of the shop by taking some space on the road, and this reduces the space on the road for vehicles to move on. There should be restrictions by the government on these shopkeepers for which we can just appeal to the government, and rest is in the hands of the government. During the festive season, more people usually go shopping in the market, which becomes the cause of crowds, and some stupid people park their vehicles at the wrong places in the market. Some people who want to show off bring their big cars to small markets. All these things are the reasons for traffic jams in the market. In order to reduce traffic on roads, which creates pollution and decrease crowds, do online shopping this time.
For saving time
Time is like money these days; thus, it should be spent wisely. If you visit any market or shop, it can take more time for you to buy the product because of the crowd and traffic problems. You can utilize this time on other crucial tasks like cleaning and decorations. On the contrary, while doing online Diwali shopping, you can fix your order, and your order is delivered to you on the mentioned date.
For avoiding chaos
Owing to heavy crowds and traffic, there can be more accidents, and people can get injured as this has happened in the past. If you don’t want to spend your money saved for Diwali shopping on your medical expenses, then better not to visit the market this time.
For saving money
When you look for your favorite thing in the market, sometimes you have to go from one shop to another, and while doing so, you burn a lot of fuel in your vehicle. This isn’t the case in online shopping, as you can effortlessly choose any product in the comfort of your house. If you do not get your choice of product on one website, you can look for the same on another side. Going from one website to another website is easy as compared to going to one market to another (pun intended).
For choosing easily without distractions
There can be noise due to the crowd in the markets, and people will have to wait for the things in queue for a long time owing to the crowd. In this haste and loud sounds, one can buy the wrong size or wrong product. This may have happened to you. So, if you don’t want to repeat your mistake, then you should do online shopping this time so that when you buy the pack of dry fruits, you do not get the wrong pack this time as you would buy dry fruits Diwali gifts online.
For saving yourself from the brainwashing of shopkeepers Sometimes, shopkeepers provide misleading information about the product which they want to sell. For example, if you are looking for something which is not available at their shops, they will misguide you by saying that the same thing is out of fashion or it is not available at any store. They do their best to influence the customer to purchase those products which are available at their shops because they want to increase their sales. If you want to protect yourself from this trap, then do online shopping this time.
