Lifestyle — How To Survive The Sunday Scaries
by Sierra Jiminez

Sundays can be great: unlimited mimosa brunches, friends and family and maybe even a nice day in the park.

But, what isn't so great are Sunday evenings. You know what I'm talking about. It's that feeling you get around 5 pm on Sunday when you realize the next day is Monday.

That feeling is called the “Sunday scaries.” Suddenly, your carefree, day-drinking self is overcome with the anxiety of what you didn't accomplish over the weekend and what you have to tackle on Monday. The real world is beckoning, and it's filled with a lot of “adult” responsibilities.
