Spontaneity peaks at the age of 31 – before tailing off just six years later.
A study of 1,000 adults found they are at their most impulsive in their early thirties, due to a desire to have fun (51 per cent) and lack of responsibility (47 per cent).
This is coupled with fewer financial commitments (44 per cent) and more disposable income (40 per cent), while 39 per cent put it down to having less fear at that age.
But it soon changes, as 37 was revealed as the least spontaneous age – thanks to an increase in responsibilities (42 per cent), having a young family (37 per cent) and a need to be more sensible (30 per cent).
It also emerged 47 per cent wish they were more spontaneous in life, especially when it comes to their social lives (37 per cent), friendships (31 per cent) and travelling (29 per cent).
A spokesperson for Skyscanner, which commissioned the research, said: “Spontaneity is proven to reduce stress and increase levels of self-esteem, along with promoting contentment and harmony in close relationships.
“Spontaneity has been directly affected over the last couple of years by the pandemic and breaking free from these constricting behaviours is key to getting back on track and also to boosting well-being.”
Only 12 per cent of adults describe themselves as spontaneous
The study also found just 12 per cent of the adults polled describe themselves as very spontaneous, with 38 per cent admitting they are the opposite and rarely step out of their comfort zone.
But men are slightly more so than women (63 per cent compared to 61 per cent).
For 23 per cent, simply going on an unplanned night out is among the most spontaneous things they have done, while 16 per cent said the same of dying their hair.
Others have gone on a last-minute
