I'm looking for material that addresses the issue of over-stimulation.

Not knowing ones spiritual choice or direction this is a bit of a stab in the dark but....

An Ocean of the Ultimate Meaning by Khenchen Thrangu, published by Shambala, Chapter 5 Enhancing stabilty in meditation may be helpful.
Focusing on thoughts addresses the necessity of combining meditative practice with daily activity and such things.

There are specific remedies for active minds impinging upon a stability meditative practice that may be employed, but perhaps this is more the area of concern than that.

An ocean sounds good and I love Khenchen Thrangu. He´s very patient and very brave.

Ah my stab may have hit the mark intended :D

Yes he is truly wonderful in many ways.
If you have not read that you will thoroughly enjoy it and it touches on this to my opinion.
