What You Need to Know About Resilience


Resilience is the ability to adapt in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, or other significant sources of stress. It allows us to bounce back when something bad happens. The ability to be resilient can be affected after an emotionally distressing event or a particularly stressful period in life.

Resilience Has Not Improved Over the Past Year

It’s clear that the ”new normal” of modern life is having its impact on our mental health, especially when it comes to Resilience. The Total Brain Mental Health Index shows that there was a less than 1% improvement in people’s ability to emotionally come back from trauma or setback from February 2020 to July 2021. Total Brain’s self-care tools are designed to strengthen the ability to persevere with a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and positive thinking practices.
