First off, this tends to occur in people under a lot of stress. What in your life is causing this? Try to see what it could be and deal with that. In the mean time, the only thing that can protect your teeth now is a bite guard. Generally people wear them at night or during stressful times of the day, such as commuting to work. However, maybe you should consider wearing it more. It is made of clear acrylic material and fits over the bottom teeth.
