Whether you’re familiar with the term “Sunday Scaries” or not, you’re likely familiar with the feeling: that deep, debilitating anxiety that blesses us as the weekend comes to a close, causing our mind to flood with fear of the days to come; at the same time, it also leaves us feeling overwhelmed and in a state of overanalyzing anything and everything we experienced over the weekend. See? Scary.
No matter how much we like our jobs or enjoy going to school, we all tend to feel it to some degree. We’ll find that we “live for the weekends,” and then feel the existential dread of Monday morning, long before Sunday’s sun even sets.
It’s a vicious cycle, and we wanted it to stop. With that in mind, we chatted with expert psychologists and life coaches to find out how we can nip the Sunday Scaries in the bud for good, and get back to enjoying our weekends to their full extent. The good news? There’s hope.
