TD and Stress

Because stress can worsen TD symptoms, it’s important to know you are not alone. And by practicing calming activities by yourself or with others, you can create a better sense of well-being.

Be proactive. Find time for activities you find stress relieving and remember to reach out to people who can provide support and guidance.

Help yourself

These activities may help relieve stress:

  • Practicing relaxation
  • Trying guided meditation
  • Taking walks and exploring nature
  • Setting aside time just for yourself
  • Discovering hobbies such as gardening,
    playing or listening to music, or sketching

Get help from others

Your support system may include:

  • Friends and family
  • Peers with similar experiences
  • Online TD forums and communities
  • Counselors or support group

GET creative.

Try out different relaxation techniques and figure out which ones work best for you.
