British people are stuck in their ways at just 25, according to a new study endorsed by a Bournemouth University lecturer.
Dr Samuel Nyman agrees with research which found that more than a third of 25 year olds had no desire to try new things with their hobbies thought to be fixed for life.
One in six even also thought that they had already discovered their favourite foods, travel destinations and even friendships with a quarter of them admitted to shying away from trying new things for fear of being laughed at.
The research also found that people are less willing to discover new things as they get older with nearly half citing a lack of inspiration as a reason for not seeking new experiences – many have even given up things that they used to enjoy too. Perhaps most worrying is how more than half of women questioned had stopped any form of sport by the age of 30.
Psychology lecturer Nyman wasn’t surprised by the findings, saying that “Unfortunately the older we get the less likely we are to be physically active.
“This is mirrored in this study’s report linking age with waning attempts at trying new things.”
