P.S. if you clench your jaw a lot, see if your dentist can fit you with a mouth guard. you probably are also clenching or grinding your teeth in your sleep. a mouth guard will help you stop clenching as much while you sleep and protect your teeth, which is important for long-term health. training your body not to clench while you sleep will also help you stop clenching as much during the day

also, if you notice yourself clenching your teeth during the day, try to consciously unclench your teeth and relax all your muscles. holding tension in your face and muscles will in turn make you feel tense emotionally. while you can’t always control your emotions, you can consciously relax your muscles, and that can have a carryover to your overall mental state.
