Stepping outside of one's Comfort Zone...Top 10 Survey findings (very interesting read)Complimenting a stranger in the street is the top thing adults would most like to do in public, but don’t have the guts, according to a poll from the UK. The poll of 2,000 adults found 40 percent ‘consciously limit’ themselves in life because they fear being criticized when doing things more freely. The survey, carried out by OnePoll, revealed that going to the cinema alone, singing aloud, and walking barefoot are other unconventional activities we are too embarrassed to indulge in.
Well over half of respondents feel more alive when they push themselves out of their comfort zone, but they are often too scared to take the leap. One in three (34 percent) worry what other people would think if they were to be so adventurous—and 43 percent hold so much of themselves back that they believe others would be shocked to learn their true personality.
Pavan Chandra from Peperami, which commissioned the poll as part of a new campaign to encourage spontaneity, said, “We as a nation are traditionally known as being a bit stiff and reserved. “However, if everyone went outside of their comfort zone once in a while, they’ll start seeing the fun and exciting side of life.”
