Nine out of 10 Brits play it safe and live within their comfort zones, according to new research.
A further seven in 10 also say they typically try to avoid change or trying new things, preferring the tried and tested.
Reasons for people staying put include worrying about what will happen after trying something different, with one in five admitting they’re not very adventurous.
The study of 2,000 Brits was conducted by Casumo.com, who were trying to discover how bold Brits really are.
Their spokesman Greg Tatton-Brown said: “It seems that sticking to a tried-and-true routine is as British as a pot of tea, cucumber sandwich or rain in June.
“Our results showed that 90 per cent tend to have the same routine day in, day out – and far from being bored by it, people seem to prefer it that way.
“But at Casumo we exist to shake things up a bit – so we wanted to see if we could take two ordinary blokes and show them how much fun life can be when you make it a little more extreme.
Nearly a third of Brits will avoid changing their hairstyle to stay within their comfort zone, and one in 10 won’t even try a new pub.
And almost a quarter say that swapping their normal breakfast for something else would be dangerously out of their comfort zone.
More than a third of respondents happily admit their friends and family see them as someone who never does things on a whim.
And even though three quarters believe that getting out of one’s comfort zone is something everyone should do, a third say they haven’t done it in over a year.
One in 10 even say they’ve NEVER done something they felt took them out of their comfort zone.
Sixty percent of respondents said their primary reaction would be nervousness, if they were forced to try something new.
And just one in 20 said they’d feel prepared to step outside what was comfortable to them, with five times as many saying they’d feel totally unprepared.
Spokesman Greg Tatton-Brown said: “Although seven out of 10 respondents in our survey said that they’d probably benefit from stepping out of their comfort zones every now and again, not many actually take the plunge.”
