I never would imagine that something this simple could help wit anxiety. Chewing gum.
Would you ever have thought it? I wonder if it would work for me? I think I will try this and see, next time I manage to get out I will get some gum and see if it works. I think today's research is amazing, the things they find.
Yep. It worked for me. I tried it and it gave me energy when usually I have none
I'm getting a shopping delivery towards the end of this week so I'm going to put it on the list. I'll let you know if it works for me!
It said it's about choosing a new path, I think it meant CHEWSING hahaha
That's cute. Lol. Experts believe that chewing releases sarotonin. That' what makes a gluton love food.
Sometimes I might eat just for the sake of it even if I'm not hungry. Even if I eat something that is not so yummy I can feel a bit better so I bet it is like you say, just the chewing motion.
It is because I am exactly the same way.
How is the experiment going?
Hiya Offrunner, nice to meet you. I did get some gum and chew it alot now. But I am still getting flashbacks which throw me into an attack. I think it is the chewing that helps. Chewing helps to bring you into the hear and now.
Hmm... Now I think that chewing can even aggravate the problem. Such a reverse effect... Anyway I'll try to do it with smth like rice flakes (I suppose gum still isn't good for the stomach and throat). I will later publish my scientific observations for the community
Now I've got smth to tell: IDK... I am not sure whether it works or not, but, you know, I can't have so much flakes! They aren't as low-calorie as seem to be. Chewing gum is not a method too (it irritates the throat).
When I eat I still get flashbacks. Nothing seems to stop memories from flashing into my head and in front of my eyes.
I always chew gum when I get anxious. But the side effect for me is all the air I gulp while chewing gum, gets trapped in my gut so I end up belching a lot when I'm anxious and feeling bloated. I may have to find another non-medication self-soothing technique since chewing gum gives me gas.
I've run out of gum now, but I was still getting flashbacks anyway. It makes me burp too @Peacelily and I don't like the taste after a while.
Last night I chewed an entire pack of gum (belched a lot!), went for a walk, drank chamomile tea, took a warm bath, wrote in a gratitude journal, did some deep breathing and self talk, and THEN felt better. Sometimes, gum isn't enough. You know?
