Anxiety is often something we try our best to avoid or suppress, but anxiety can also be harnessed to be an effective tool under certain circumstances or in small amounts. Here's some tips on how:
+ Anxiety in moderation: Accept that even though too much anxiety is bad, some anxiety is helpful in keeping us alert, focused, and motivated.
+ Name and reframe: Once you realize you're anxious about a situation, try to put it into a different context. If you're anxious about a date, frame that anxiety as excitement.
+ Recognize the signal: Anxiety often represents that there is an issue that needs addressing.
