comment Fixing 'reverse-tiredness'?
I now realize that if you've had this problem across many time zones, it could be trickier. Do you like your job? Could sleeping be a way your unconscious is running from what you do? I have had a friend who would almost fall asleep when having unpleasant conversations filled with negative feedback for him. Drowsiness was his defense.

comment Keeping focus in the now during intense situations
Warren, you are right. I should have asked more about the nature of those intense situations. I have used some of the methods I've recommended, and have worked for me, and I didn't need them because I was living in a peaceful environment or had an easy life; I didn't even want a life anymore, so it was pretty bad, and these things helped when I din't see any other way out. Regarding the ability to focus under pressure, I have heard of zen meditation practitioners being able to stay so calm and focused while being severely physically hurt, that their doctors couldn't believe how hurt they were.
