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 “Sunday scaries”—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 “Sunday scaries.”
Some key takeaways:
👉 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.
👉 There are 1.9M open jobs for every job seeker right now. So this is still absolutely a market that favors talented job seekers.
👉 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.
👉 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.
