June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Man was meant to break free! Or at least that's when he's the happiest, according to a new Harris Interactive poll, which finds that guys who are spontaneous, adventurous and even impulsive tend to be happier. The nationally representative study, funded by Schick Hydro® in support of the brand's television series, "Clean Break ® Presented by Schick Hydro®," polled over 3,500 men and found a striking difference in overall happiness across a wide variety of spectrums. Fewer than half of the men polled feel their life is exactly the way they'd like it to be and 59 percent feel their life is currently in a rut.
However, men describing themselves as spontaneous were much more likely to:
- Be happy (72 percent versus 48 percent);
- Report higher success (51 percent versus 33 percent);
- And be satisfied with their jobs (81 percent versus 67 percent).
Adventurous men (about one-third of those polled) appear to see benefits:
- In the boardroom (51 percent believe they're more successful than other men their age, versus 31 percent of non-adventurous men);
- And the bedroom (66 percent are extremely confident in their sex lives, versus 40 percent of non-adventurous men).
A whopping 88 percent want to try new activities and experiences, and 71 percent wish they could escape their daily lives. But what does breaking free of your everyday routine have to do with a razor?
"Shaving is a guy's first step as he prepares to tackle the day ahead – we liken it to a pregame warm up or a pep talk before you take the field," said
, Director of Marketing for Men's Razors & Blades at Energizer Personal Care®. "At Schick, we believe guys need to break free from the norms of everyday life in order to discover something entirely new, like shaving with a different razor. Schick Hydro is our best shave for a guy's skin, so why not try it?"
