Cortisol levels probably high due to stress?

    @stevow7
    I think it becomes a problem if you worry and focus on it.
    I was exhausted for almost a year, needing to rest ever afternoon. Then I realized it was the same time every afternoon. Hmmm.
    Now, I was not very functional at this point and I realized I needed to a) try and move more b) re-find my interests so that I could attempt to redirect my mind, and c) for my very busy worried mind, rest it with meditation. It may only rest for 3-4 minutes right now in a 1 hr meditation but that’s an improvement.
    A whirling, busy mind and a body in pain can release chemicals we don’t need in the moment

    so you're saying doing stuff that interest us can help improve our mind? I think so as well.
