Here are two words to think about:
Anxiety is worry about something you can’t control. So why worry about it? Try to make the most of your current situation. That’s easier said than done, of course, but are you really making things better with all that negative energy?
Procrastination is worry about something you can control. You feel worried because you keep putting off something important. And the pressure just mounts. In this case, take action! You’ll be a lot happier for it.
