The Cleveland Clinic defines Sunday Scaries as “feelings of intense anxiety and dread that routinely occur every Sunday.”1

CNN Health even wrote a story entitled How to ward off the ‘Sunday scaries’ before the new week begins. Written by at the and Health, RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences she writes, For many people, the Sunday scaries also happen due to the work they left behind on Friday evening. The anticipation of the next day, the work you might have to do and all the emails you’ll need to catch up on can cause anxiety. But working through the weekend isn’t the answer either – and could actually leave your mental health worse off. [2] (Source/Credit: CNN Health; Published 8:02 AM EDT, Sun August 14, 2022)
