Threshold for taking benzos for generalized anxiety

I have a prescription for lorazepam (Ativan) 1 mg that my doctor told me to take "as needed" for anxiety. Since there are downsides to using benzos, I am trying to determine how strong my anxiety needs to be before I take some. Curious what rules of thumb people have settled on. Do you take it even for slight anxiety? Or only when it gets bad?
