Sunday Scaries

Cat gifs are relaxing.

Sunday scaries are the “emotional discomfort at the doorstep of a new week.” Why they happen depends a bit on the person, and a bit on who you’re talking to. Some psychoanalysts argue that Sunday scaries are a byproduct of anticipatory anxiety. That’s the dread you experience about an event or situation in the future. Sunday Scaries from Inverse is a weekly series about improving your mental health on what can be an anxiety-inducing day of the week.
