WHAT ARE THE SUNDAY SCARIES?
The Sunday Scaries are the anxiety that sets in on Sunday nights with the impending return to the office, school, or work.
We all get them. Whether you call them The Sunday Scaries, The Sunday Blues, The Fear, The Shakes, The Spooks, The Dread – they’re there.
As the New York Times describes them, “It is Sunday afternoon, sometime past 3 o’clock. The weekend hourglass is spilling its treasure... unmistakably, there is company." That company? The Sunday Scaries.
It's when everything swirling in your head becomes more real, more rapid, and just a little bit louder. All you have left to look forward to is your impending work or school week. Sure, there are cures, but it's simply not that easy. Pour a cup of coffee or a lemon water, put on an oversized longsleeve t-shirt, find a romantic comedy on your Apple TV, and settle in – because they're not going away any time soon.
