Stress: one isn't relaxed (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tension

'stress' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'one isn't relaxed' is the wordplay.
'relaxed' indicates an anagram.
'one'+'isnt'='oneisnt'
'oneisnt' anagrammed gives 'TENSION'.

(Other definitions for tension that I've seen before include "Strain, nervousness" , "Anxiety" , "nerves" , "Intones (anag) - stress" , "anxious state" .)

I've seen this clue in The sun and The Sun.
