The Usefulness of Anxiety

I want to draw people’s attention to an article in the SF Chronicle by a local psychologist and faculty member at UCSF that distinguishes between anxiety and panic. Elissa Epel makes the point that anxiety can motivate us to be prudent, to take useful measures during this time of crisis. Panic, on the other hand, influences more negatively. A good reminder for us to be aware of our feelings, our anxieties, but to manage our panic responses. Click here to read the article. And be well.
