Nobody expects shopping to be a strenuous task, although carrying too many items or walking too much without rest can cause you pain. Knowing how to shop is about more than knowing your credit card limit, it's about knowing your body's limit.
For Those Who Shopped Until They Dropped
After a long day of shopping, your muscles may be ailing. Find the time to draw a warm, soothing bath and give your muscles a nice long soak. This may help ease the pain and soreness.
Lighten the Load
Don't overexert yourself. This is the main cause of muscle pain when shopping. If you have to, take two trips. It's better to try and carry as little as possible to avoid muscle strain.
