You’ve been enjoying a great weekend. Now, it’s 6 p.m. on Sunday and you’re watching Netflix with your family. Even though you’re still technically in break mode, you find yourself constantly glancing at your phone to check the time.
In the back of your mind, you keep thinking about work the next day. Before you know it, the episode is over, and it’s 7 p.m. Rather than enjoying your night off, you continue to obsess about the upcoming week’s work tasks. Soon, it’s 10 p.m., and you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed. You’re counting the hours of sleep you’ll get tonight.
Will you get enough sleep to conquer your Monday morning meeting? Eventually, you fall asleep, but not before you’ve wasted half of your day off obsessing about work. And you’re not the only one.
The Sunday Scaries can happen to anyone.
