The Top Habit All Blog Readers Want to Break Is.....

We conducted a survey (when I say 'we' I mean 'me') of all blog readers (when I say 'all' I mean 'all the <35 respondents to this survey') this past week of the top habit they wanted to break (when I say 'break' I mean 'break'). 

Here's the break down of the results below:

  • Stress Eating was the number one habit they wanted to end by 43% of the survey participants;
  • Nail Biting was next with 25% of the vote;
  • Surfing the Internet was the top habit to cut back on for 18% of  folks asked;
  • While Smoking and Too Much TV were tied with 6% according to the respondents who voted.
I think these are interesting stats since the top two identified habits tend to be more stress-induced than the others. Obviously there are several factors driving that increased stress level for all of us including: high unemployment; the recession; the BP oil hemorrage in the Gulf; family or health issues; the Afghan war....etc.

If you're stressed and stretched to the breaking point, take a breath...and then take a look at my blog post from yesterday titled Slowing Down in an Accelerating World. Who knows, it might help you chew fewer nails this week.
