Sunday Scaries? Here's How to Deal

If you’ve ever experienced the “Sunday Scaries”—aka, a surge of dread on Sunday loosely related to the end of the weekend, and the start of the week ahead—you know that they’re not quite as cute and playful as the name suggests.

And they don’t make themselves scarce: More than 80 percent of surveyed Americans report an affliction with said Scaries, according to recent research conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LinkedIn. Among the top reported causes were concerns about workload, balancing one’s professional and personal life, and incomplete tasks from the prior week. (Honestly, I got a little stressed just writing that last sentence.)
