6. And a lot of the times people around you are asking if you're OK.

I'm fine. Just restless.

7. You tend to fidget with whatever is placed in front of you. A lot.


Everything from a pen to the straw in your drink.

8. Because any movement is better than none.


9. Binge watching TV shows is great and all, but you break it up with stretching your legs and pacing your house a lot in between episodes.

11. When you get restless in bed you tend to spend a lot of your time tossing, turning and looking a little like this.

13. Meaning the next day when you're overly tired, it somehow seems to make you even more restless.


14. When people want to have long conversations you make them walk with you...

15. you can be productive while they're ranting away.
