'Unadventurous' Britains have had same haircut their entire lives
Far from ringing the changes or experimenting, people from Britain are reluctant to embrace the new things with a third of them having the same hairstyle their entire life, researchers say.
According to the new study, 55 percent of men are so resistant to change they have always had the same hair cut, and are so stuck in a rut that 43 percent of them say they see no reason to change their hair style in future.
The study, carried out by energy company E.ON, found that 27 percent of people from Britain admit that they simply don't like change in their life - and more often than not it's a case of better the devil you know.
64 percent admit that they have never moved their bank account and 53 percent of adults say they have never changed their job.
Meanwhile, 35 percent say that they have had the same hairstyle since their mother stopped cutting it.
Although 22 percent of women maintain they should sport a different style at least once every three months, 62 percent of men say they will die with their current cut.
On the other hand, it seems that those keen to take the plunge find barriers, with 29per cent claiming they 'don't know where to start'.
25 percent admit that they are simply too lazy and 21 percent say they don't have time to make real changes.
As a result, 56 per cent of Brits confess their lives are stuck in rut.
When we do take steps to address this, the study suggests we usually do so to save money or for health reasons.
Their inability to address issues evidently preys on our minds. The survey found that their resistance to change leaves 39 percent of them feeling guilty, 34 percent ruing their laziness and 30 percent feeling stressed.
"When you don't have the time to do something or don't understand it, it's perhaps natural to bury your head in the sand or become stressed," the Daily Mail quoted Psychologist Linda Papadopoulos as saying.
"A key part of the problem is the pressure we put ourselves under.
"Take a step back and set yourself realistic goals and deadlines to achieve these.
"Once you've made the first few positive changes, you'll feel motivated to carry on and achieve more," she added.
