Jay Unwin speaker bio


In the high-stakes world of today, stress has become an all too common companion. Workplaces, in particular, have become hotbeds of stress and pressure, with employees struggling to keep up with mounting demands, unpredictable changes, and relentless pace. This isn't just an assumption - the numbers tell a stark tale.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, in the UK alone, 828,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression, or anxiety in 2020/21 leading to 17.9 million working days lost. Globally, the World Health Organization calls stress the 'health epidemic of the 21st Century'.

But stress doesn't only exact a heavy toll on individuals' health and wellbeing - it also impacts their performance and productivity, creating a ripple effect that resonates through entire teams and organizations. Stress is a stealthy saboteur, silently eroding job satisfaction, employee engagement, and ultimately, the bottom line.

Beyond the personal level, chronic stress often leads to burnout - a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion coupled with feelings of doubt about one's competence and value. Left unchecked, burnout can ravage morale, spark talent drain, and stunt growth.

Yet, the traditional responses to stress and burnout – focusing primarily on individual resilience or generic wellness initiatives – often fall short. They address the symptoms, not the causes, and lack an integrated, systemic approach that aligns with the realities of the modern workplace.

This is where Stressonomics comes into the picture, addressing the need for sustainable, comprehensive, and practical strategies to transform stress into an asset rather than a liability. Welcome to a new approach for our new world.



Stressonomics is a revolutionary approach, turning the traditional narrative on its head. Rather than viewing stress as an inevitable foe, we can choose to see it as a potential ally. The energy of optimal stress, when harnessed and directed correctly, can be a powerful driver for creativity, productivity, and innovation.

At the centre of Stressonomics®️ are Six Core Principles:

Holistic Stress Management

Addressing both individual coping strategies and systemic workplace conditions.

Minimum Effective Dose Approach

Adopting strategies from pharmacology to manage stress.

Stress Balance Management

Using the metaphor of a balance sheet to manage stress.

Prevention Over Cure

Prioritising proactive stress management measures over reactive ones.

Adaptive Resilience

Strategic Stress Timing

Understanding the importance of managing stress in the present to prevent compounded stress in the future.


The following 7-step process is the framework for implementation of the philosophy and practical strategies found within Stressonomics...
