Chronic Stress on the Rise 

We consume more information in a single day than we would have in an entire year 500 years ago. That's 74GB of data daily, equivalent to watching 16 movies, and it's increasing by 5% each year.

Chronic Stress on the Rise

Burnout gained official recognition from the World Health Organisation in 2019. Its significant impact on individual health, wellbeing, and performance has put individuals, teams, and managers under increasing pressure.

In 2024, the UK government released its first-ever publication on stress and burnout, revealing alarming statistics. Stress and burnout are pervasive and on the rise.


We find ourselves in what's been termed a 'human energy crisis,' where our increasingly demanding lifestyles deplete more physical and mental resources than we can replenish, leading to chronic stress and burnout.

Now more than ever, we need a new

approach, one specifically designed to tackle the challenges of modern-day life to maintain optimal mental health, wellbeing and performance.
