Sometimes it can help you to know how anxious you really are. A quick test is to assess your anxiety level out of 10. If you are a 9 or 10 out of 10 it is pretty high, if it is 5 you are anxious but not over the top, and 3 or lower is approaching calm.
Test yourself throughout the day. Sometimes it is a pleasant surprise to know you are low and if you are high you can try a tool from the toolkit. Having a number for how anxious you are can give you an objective measure that helps you to put your anxiety into perspective.
