UK Mental Wellbeing and Stress Relief – What consumers want and why

Financial concerns create stress

In total, four in five UK adults have experienced stress in the last year, with finance, physical health, and mental health the primary causes. Almost two-thirds of UK adults who say their stress level has worsened in the last 12 months also say their finances have caused them stress. Brands may struggle to provide meaningful financial relief to consumers, but efforts to make savvy shopping simple can remove budgeting stress from consumer minds.

Sleep quality a significant priority

Sleep quality has a ripple effect, with a lack of good sleep causing issues like brain fog. Brands that help consumers improve their sleep, or regulate their circadian rhythms, will therefore appeal. This is particularly relevant when it comes to helping consumers unplug, as 30% of UK adults would be interested in limiting their screen time before bed to improve their sleep.

Wellbeing fatigue a potential issue

Over half of UK adults agree wellbeing claims have become a marketing gimmick. Renewing interest in more established wellbeing concepts such as CBD and mindfulness will be key, as well as helping consumers discover the potential benefits of emerging ingredients and concepts, including adaptogens and neurocosmetics.

Our full report contains a deeper examination of consumer attitudes towards managing stress and wellbeing, including the key factors affecting consumers, and key innovation and marketing trends in the wellness sector.
