To be sure we are all on the same page, know that the term anxiety is defined as, a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

Not to mention anxiety’s role in obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, but let’s just stop there.

But could some level of anxiety be good?
