anx·i·e·ty

noun
A feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

18% of the U.S. population suffers from an anxiety disorder. You probably know someone who has one, maybe it’s you. In today’s fast-paced, competitive, and negative world, it’s no wonder so many of us are stressed out and anxious.
