Brief overview - I am 28

Brief overview -

I am 28 years old, studied Engineering. I have always been very active and like living on the edge. My problem is that my brain over analyzes everything...I have trouble sleeping at night, because my brain wont shut off, I think about things ranging from what happened during the day, to past events and even think of the future. This is starting to effect my sleeping and relationships aswell, because I always read into things and my mind is continuously thinking and drawing up conclusions.

I am always restless and I get bored quickly

Please can someone help me to find out what is wrong or where to start


Hi Pat, While I can't

Hi Pat,
While I can't say for sure, it sounds like you are experiencing a lot of anxiety. People with anxiety often feel like their brains won't "shut off", and have problems with sleep. There are other possible explanations for your symptoms as well.

I encourage you to have an evaluation by a mental health professional to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms as well as the best ways to treat them.

I also encourage you to get regular, vigorous aerobic exercise - such as running, swimming, or biking. Aerobic exercise helps to reduce symptoms of anxiety and will also help you to sleep better. Yoga, when practiced regularly, is also another good way to alleviate some of your symptoms. There are also various relaxation techniques that you can learn to do when you are feeling anxious.
