Stress is recognised by many as the leading proximal cause of death. Strokes and heart attacks are most commonly cited, but other sub-optimal outcomes include decreased immunity, insomnia, anxiety, depression, addiction, obesity, heart disease and severe memory loss.

According to an extensive study of stress levels in the UK conducted by the Mental Health Foundation and YouGov, 74% of people have felt so stressed that they have become overwhelmed or felt unable to cope. A report published in February 2022 by the Mental Health Foundation and the London School of Economics and Political Science, states that mental health problems, including stress, cost the UK economy at least £117.9 billion annually.
