I have found a reason for my restlessness comes with quitting things that no longer serve my greater good. From years of indulgence my mind has developed patterns which associates these outdated structures as comfortable. Now that the mind can not fall back on these actions it grows weary, agitated and feels stretched out. I am pleased this is the result and happy to seek a creative outlet. Reading, praying and focusing on the Breath are wonderful tools to add to the list provided in this thread. I read that we must eventually learn to disengage the senses however and go further within.

"If at this moment you could completely calm your body, your thoughts, and your emotions you would instantly become aware of your true Self, the soul, and of your great body of the universe, throbbing with the joy of God. The soul would be 'established in its own state.' Isn't it strange, that the joy of God is there, yet you cannot feel it? The reason you do not know His Bliss is that you are intoxicated with ego feeling(chitta)."
Taken from The Divine Romance by Paramahansa Yogananda
Chapter, How Feelings Mask the Soul
