Possibly: Using your body, doing physical things like exercise, may help you feel more connected to your physical self. This could counteract the tendency in depersonalization to feel separate from yourself, or not be able to experience your life. Practices like yoga, where you focus on holding certain positions in a mindful way, may be especially useful.

Likely so: Exercise, stress management and improving the quality and satisfaction relationships will impact these symptoms and your quality of life. Finding a licensed psychotherapist (psychologist, social worker, master's level counselor) to help you identify the triggers for these symptoms and strategies to address them directly will likely be critical.
