Anxiety

Anxiety

ang-zahy-i-tee - aŋˈzʌɪəti

Anxiety is a sense of unease, nervousness or uncertainty and can be triggered by almost anything. When running a business, anxiety can be common, and it's really not that pleasant! It's important to acknowledge you're feeling anxious, and do your best to calm yourself. If it becomes too much for you, you can always talk to your doctor or a counsellor to help you work through it. We’ve all been there. We all feel anxious from time to time, but don't let it rule your life.

Origin

The word originated in 1620, meaning "greatly troubled by uncertainties," from Latin anxius "solicitous, uneasy, troubled in mind" from angere, anguere "to choke, squeeze," figuratively "to torment, cause distress".
