Still Stressed?

You’ve done everything everyone else has tried – from Yoga, deep breathing, to the complete opposite of drinking and yelling. If you are feeling stressed and have been, for say more than a week, and have tried various ways under the sun and the moon to alliviate that stress, I would recommend that you schedule to have your Cortisol levels checked. It’s very affordable – 45 bucks – and can actually help relieve some of your stress to begin with. You will be able to figure out if any of these symptoms below are actually due to abnormal Cortisol levels and not because this Recession sucks! Here are some of the symptoms you’ll want to keep an eye out for:
