Sounds like an adjunct symptom of depression, which I've certainly experienced. Some variety of anxiety, I'd guess.

Here's what I know, though, from my former job which was pretty physical: learning to live in your own skin helps with it more than anything else. It's my way of saying I think there's something to what nicolas said about meditation. I'm from California, so I say meditate if you like -- but honestly, *anything* that teaches you to be more comfortable in your body will help. Weights helped me, just because I learned what each muscle group felt like from inside. On the other hand, part of my trouble comes from hiding everything inside me so much when I was young, so learning to *use* my body was probably helpful as well.

Six of one, half dozen of the other -- yoga, Pilates, meditation, weights, maybe swimming? Whatever works for you will probably be as good as anything else, the important thing is to learn to live in your body. As I recall, you're one o' them young'uns? That's such an advantage for you, you have time on your side and I so much envy you that. This middle aged broad tells you "do it NOW and save yourself a world of hurtin', kiddo" but then, that's only one opinion. (And a whole lot of people told me the same thing when I was younger -- I didn't believe any of them, either.)

Best luck.
