Things seem to change quickly too. Chunjurs (ankle bells) used to be common only a few decades ago. Do we see them much anymore?  

Yes, things change quicker in contemporary times although in the past jewellery and clothing was more consistent for a few centuries before any drastic changes. 

Jhanjar is still popular but not for every day wear as it was before. Some still consider it customary to have silver Jhanjar made for young girls. However, the style of anklets has changed in Panjab. Contemporary styles are usually light with fewer attached ornaments. 

Prior to the 1970s, there were far more elaborate types (e.g. Kada, Jhanjar, Panjeb, Patri'an) and they were worn regularly.

Physically and mentally I would say the primary effects I've noticed are less anger, less fear, less depression,  When I am on deployments it's sometimes hard to avoid meat, and when I've "relapsed" i

That's not as pronounced as you might think in surviving rehitnamay. There are so many images going way back (including one that purports to be a contemporary one of dasmesh pita) that show earrings.
