I came across this fascinating article from the team at Morning Brew about a recent study that explained the results of a joint LinkedIn and Headspace survey of 2,000 US-based workers.

They found that a whopping 75% of respondents said they experience the โ€œSunday scariesโ€โ€”a feeling of dread that settles in as the weekend draws to a close.

Some 37% of respondents blame their Sunday anxiety on feeling overwhelmed at work, while 74% say the uncertain economy has increased the frequency of their Sunday scaries. Additionally, 28% of Headspace users report sleep troubles partly caused by anxiety over job security.

The cloud of dread hanging over you on Sunday evening; the wave of anxious anticipation you feel ahead of a new week; the cold sweat you get thinking about Monday. These feelings have a name: the โ€œSunday scaries.โ€

Some key takeaways:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Tons of employees who are feeling burned out, and most recently, there has been a sense of economic uncertainty, so it makes sense that this critical mass of people are feeling Sunday scaries.

๐Ÿ‘‰ย There are 1.9M open jobs for every job seeker right now. So this is still absolutely a market that favors talented job seekers.

๐Ÿ‘‰ The article recommends workers take their beginning-of-the-week-experiences into their own hands by organizing their Monday schedules in advance, blocking off time to ease into the week, and creating opportunities for connection.

๐Ÿ‘‰ To address the Sunday scaries, the article recommends mindfulness, meditation, practicing gratitude, and seeking therapy, as well as taking breaks from the news, and even work, when necessary.
