Researcher Janine Wiles, who looked at almost 2000 elderly Taiwanese, said people who are shopping frequently are quite likely having lots of social contact, which is also strongly associated with well-being.

Meanwhile, Massey University lecturer Juliana Mansvelt said another benefit may come from the physical activity of walking from store to store.

The study was published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
