Maybe no exactly the same but last few weeks I’ve been struggling to switch off and obsessing about work (started a new job back in May), where the pressure has gradually been increasing.
But going to bed and dreaming about work and waking up thinking about what needs doing etc. Feels like I have energy but I have it in bursts and then crash and feel fatigued.
Have taken to leaving my phone and watch at home and going for walks, or get a coffee or something on weekends to disconnect for a few hours, because I feel always being connected to my phone makes it too easy to connect to things stressing me.
Good luck mate, hope it’s improved since you posted.
Go running. I've just started doing this and have made it a promise to myself to make it a very regular thing from now on in. I've only recently started running again but I realised a lot of things were starting to bog me down in work.
I had loads on I've had some awful bouts of anxiety in the past (not abnormal - I've always found myself in anxious moments for as long back as I can remember) and it's still very much there for me. For me, the signs are obvious - loss of appetite, irritability, hypochondriac thoughts.
It is the devil on my shoulder. It is the thing telling me, even when thinking about going for a run, that I will do harm to myself or that I'm in no fit state to go running or that by jogging in the park I will somehow look the fool in public. And yet all of that is nonsense once you hit your stride. That you see other people doing it makes you feel so much better as well.
I've gone though such a busy time at work recently, stressful though very productive but something I've been thinking about far too much. And it kind of showed this morning - I woke up feeling not too good about myself. Sadly it's more often than not that I wake up feeling the burden and anxieties of the world upon me but this one just made me feel especially like crap. Heavy head, tired, lack of appetite (which is the worst thing).
That state forced me to go for a 25 minute run this morning. During the run your mind may go back to what it is your worrying about but you start to process it so much better and then you hit a nice pace where you're not thinking about anything which I guess becomes a moment of meditation. I came back and I've felt like a feather for much of the day with much greater clarity in my mind and far more energy than I would have had if I hadn't gone out. It totally relaxes you and even my breathing throughout the day has been much deeper and satisfying. It's something I really have to stick at because it really worked for me this morning.
