People usually have two reactions to Black Friday: They’re either excited about the deals or hiding out until the whole thing blows over.
It seems that plenty of people fall into the first category. In the United States alone, more than 60 million people purchase on the Friday following Thanksgiving. The number climbs higher yet when you tally the folks who shop from Black Friday through Cyber Monday; in 2017, 174 million people snapped up holiday deals.
It’s definitely the hottest time of the year to buy, buy, buy. If spending money makes you break out in a cold sweat, here are Silent Mind’s tips for surviving Black Friday.
Don’t get so hung up on savings that you forget to breathe properly. Proper breathing gives you more energy and helps you think clearly. The last thing we want is any buyer’s remorse.
- Stay cozy.
Every year, viral videos show us massive crowds on their worst behavior. Rise above all that in 2019 and stay in bed. More and more of us are opting to take advantage of those Black Friday deals online.
- Set an intention.
This is the biggest mistake we make during big sales. We buy things we normally wouldn’t, just because they’re on sale. Before you log on, make your list and check it twice.
- Shop mindfully.
