Allay

Allay

<ah-lay>

relieve; calm; soothe;

to reduce and fear or worry

He is wearing a helmet and that should allay your worry about him riding a bicycle.

Remember: Allay reminds us of lay. We lay something away and no longer see it.
Or: We lay something down and no longer carry it.

Used at work:
I prepared well for this meeting so allay any thought that it won't go well.
