Stress Management: Observation of Symptoms of MY Stress

Last week at the dentists', he asked me if I grinded my teeth. He noticed neck tension, shipped molars, etc. and I said that I probably ground them in my sleep so we spoke of mouth guards. In SM, we were learning about physical manifestations of stress. I will go into detail later, but today I had an exhausting day. I noticed the pain that the dentist observed and that. . . wonder of wonders, that I was grinding my teeth. My jaw is getting bigger at the joint and I am suddenly aware that I have been doing this for a long time. Hmmmmm.

I still haven't gotten to cleaning much of my house or organizing it, but I am noticing how I am carrying stress which is interesting.
