Any advice for dealing?
This is normal, this is what it's all about. This restlessness is what drives you a lot of the time causing a lot of your suffering and you aren't aware of it, meditation is your chance to be aware of it and gain freedom from it.
Just notice it, don't fight it but don't give into it either, carry on with your meditation.
In time you will gain freedom from it.
