Lately, I’ve noticed I’m starting to experience physical symptoms of stress that are out of the ordinary for me thanks to the current state of our world.
My symptoms include debilitating TMJ, increased vertigo, piercing headaches, and then my usual symptoms of stress— irritability, fatigue, anxiety, etc.
At this point, I think I’m stressed because I’m stressed which is rather annoying. But I am struggling to DE-stress as of late. I’ve found hot face cloths over my face to alleviate my TMJ for a little while which then allows me to calm down. Rest obviously helps, but if I rest for too long, I have more time to think. And more time to think eventually leads to more stress. It’s a vicious circle!
What do you do to de-stress? Do you have any go-to hacks?
