Question Techniques to help relax jaw during the day?

Hi! so far so good with my new bite plate, I have noticed a change in the pain in my head and ears, BUT my jaw is still stiff all the time..
I am constantly trying to relax it, but sometimes I think I'm trying to hard I end up tensing it up again by accident trying to "find the right spot" to let it sit...
so the grinding has stopped so far, but apparently the NEED to has not, know what I mean?????

I know what you mean. I'm constantly concentrating on "relaxing" my jaw. Just remember, lips together, teeth apart. It also helps to keep your tongue touching the roof of you mouth, just behind your front teeth.
Glad to hear that you've noticed a positive change.
