The other day I was waiting to get into the bus, when the woman who was coming out had trouble doing so because the four bags that hang from her shoulder and on her arms made it difficult.
Watching her I was wondering why she had four bags? Looking at the bags, I saw that one was full, another half empty, and two seemed to have nothing in them at all, and they were all handbags, not tote bags or shopping bags.
After that day I started to do a little research by looking at other women, and I found out that the average is 3 bags per woman.
And some of these bags I saw slung over the shoulder were very heavy, which is not a good thing for your posture in the long run. I know you need your cosmetics and personal things, and maybe you have your computer in one, and your gym clothes in another, but what do you have in the other bag.?
And having said this, not everyone has a computer to carry around, or goes to the gym, so what is in those bags? And why do we need them? Is there no way to reduce what we carry around every day? Or are these bags a kind of security blanket?
If you don’t want to look overloaded, or ruin your health by carrying around what you don’t need, reduce the bags you carry – two bags should be all you need – and one will even be better.
Until the next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
