Why ‘Getting Back to Normal’ Shouldn’t Be The Goal

Mental health struggles are real, and most of us have experienced the ups and downs in our own lives, or at least in the lives of loved ones.

When we are not feeling our best, the first instinct is to try and get back to normal, to return to daily life and responsibilities.

However, this approach only works short term, and doesn’t address the underlying issues that could be affecting our wellbeing.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss why “getting back to normal” shouldn’t be the goal for achieving good mental health, and how Truehope EMPowerplus can help us build lives that don’t make us sick in the first place.

Recalibrate Your Life to Avoid Stress and Burnout

Stress is often the leading cause of anxiety and depression, and our current lifestyles can be very demanding. Between work, family life, and other responsibilities, it can be challenging to find balance and avoid mental health issues.

So when you’re stressed out, instead of focusing on getting back to normal, why not try to recalibrate your life to avoid stress and burnout?

One of the best ways to do this is by using Truehope EMPowerplus,



Understanding How Stress Affects Your Entire Body, Not Just Your Brain

Stress is an inevitable part of life that affects everyone in different ways. While some people thrive under pressure, others experience debilitating stress symptoms that take a toll on their physical and mental health.

Prolonged stress can wreak havoc on the body, depleting it of essential vitamins and minerals needed for optimal functioning. This blog post will explore the effects of stress on the body and how Truehope EMPowerplus can help replenish these crucial nutrients.

Using A New “F Word” To Help With Stress: Forgiveness

A somewhat shocking statistic regarding stress was recently observed by the American Psychological Association, which found that 84% of Americans believe that the United States has “serious societal issues” that need to be addressed immediately.

These societal issues come from all over: from extreme division because of difference of opinions, to concerns about the economy and jobs, to lingering concerns about the pandemic. Everything around us can be a stress-inducing item.

Nearly half of U.S. adults believe that planning for their future seems “impossible.”

A recent Gallup poll found that employee stress is at an all-time high.



How Stress Depletes The Vitamins and Minerals In Your Body

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Each and every person in this world is going to deal with stress at some point, and for many, it’s going to be on a fairly regular basis.

For those that continually experience high levels of stress, though, additional health problems will eventually arise. One big reason why is because stress causes our body to use a higher level of vitamins and minerals (or micronutrients).

Constant High Levels of Stress

In a constant high-stress environment,



What Are You Doing To Help Curb Your Stress?

The Key To Get Better Sleep and Manage Stress: Inositol

You don’t have to suffer. Your COVID-fied stress coupled with the everyday stressors of adulting is manageable. So stop berating yourself for a low resiliency to the pressures of your world. You can’t always control what the world throws at you, but you can and should work to improve your attitude and response to what is thrown.

You Can Quiet Your Mind & Strengthen Your Resilience

Inositol is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s not a vitamin because your body can produce it, but that doesn’t stop many people from referring to it as vitamin B8.



You Don’t Have More Stress; You Have Less Resiliency

Today’s world includes different stressors than that of yesteryears but not more. 

Life is not more stressful than those who survived a world when wars drafted sons, telephones didn’t leave home, and a trip to the bathroom meant a dark, cold walk to the outhouse that may or may not be housing a raccoon for the night. What is different is the modern world’s response to stress.

Chronic Stress: Admit It Exists & Disarm It With Consistency

April is Stress Awareness Month. According to Healthline and other health experts, “stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences” that “can be beneficial to your health” for immediate, short-term situations. The issue, Healthline points out, is “if your stress response doesn’t stop firing, and these stress levels stay elevated far longer than is necessary for survival.”

Tis’ the Season to be Stressed: Fa La La La Laaa La La La La

Do not underestimate holiday stress.  

Although Halloween and Trick-or-Treat paid a visit in October, most people do not overly stress about a holiday that asks for one day of celebration and leaves a trail of happily-exhausted children in its wake. Now November, on the other hand, is a different story. Lists for Santa find their way to penny-strapped parents. Expectations of homemade deliciousness like Grandma made fall upon shoulders. The desire to create moments worth remembering take hold, while remembering those who no longer sit at the Thanksgiving table tear at hearts.



Teens, Stress, & Anxiety – Turning a Mess into a Masterpiece

Their cries are silent but visible.

According to a 2017 National Institute of Mental Health report, an anxiety disorder is present in 38% of female teens and 26.1% of male teens. Experienced infrequently, anxiety is a normal response to stress. The concern arises when feelings of anxiety occur more often than not throughout a six-month period. Psychologists refer to this as chronic stress. The constant presence of anxiety in teens alters the emotional and physical framework in which they previously thrived. Anxiety affects teens emotionally (irritability,
