[That Word This Saturday] Nonchalant

Right, so my word for today as recommended by my Merriam-Webster app is:

nonchalant \nahn-shuh-LAHNT\
adjective: having an air of easy unconcern or indifference

Examples:
The most experienced public speakers are able to address audiences with a nonchalant ease.

Further information about the word of the day (source: Merriam-Webster App for iPhone):
Since “nonchalant” ultimately comes from words meaning “not” and “be warm,” it’s no surprise that the word is all about keeping one’s cool. The French word “nonchalant,” which English speakers borrowed around 1730, has essentially the same meaning as our word. It was derived in Old French from the verb “nonchaloir” (“to disregard”) and can be traced back to Latin “non” (“not”) and “calēre,” meaning “to be warm.” “Unconcerned” is one synonym of “nonchalant,” along with “casual,” “complacent,” and “insouciant.”

Now this word is not something new to me and mostly I feel this way, why? Just because I tend to be nonchalant nowadays maybe because I don’t feel that connection to my surrounding and I know it is unhealthy. I’m trying hard to change that though and hopefully soon, I’ll be able to do that.
