  1. I’ve never been a fan of chewing gum. However, if that’ll help relieve stress and anxiety, I’d be willing to try it. My husband mentioned how his friend said that it helps him to simply talk to someone about what’s causing him stress.

You can also get valuable perspective on your problems by talking them out and getting feedback, so it can be helpful for solving issues too!
