Do you suffer from a case of the 'Sunday Scaries?'

By Max Knight

I’m sure we’ve all been there. It's Sunday evening, the effects from the previous night’s Jagerbombs are fading, you’re peeking through the curtain to see if your take away has landed, and you're almost sick to death of the series you’ve spent the day binge-watching. Then BANG, it hits you - almost as hard as those Jager’s - the realisation that you’re back to work in 12 hours. Panic sets in. How will I hit my target with a week to go? Did I remember to send that very important email on Friday? And will anyone else offer to go on the coffee run this week?! It's a cycle some are all too familiar with. 

On a more serious note, this is the reality for a lot of people and don’t get me wrong, I might stay up a little later on a Sunday to squeeze what’s left of the weekend but that isn’t because I’m dreading going to work on Monday. If you’ve got to a point where you’re starting to dread work then it sounds like it's time for a change. We spend so much time at work, it’s important we enjoy it. Don't get me wrong, we all have bad days but overall job satisfaction is necessary for our wellbeing.  

If you’re suffering from the “Sunday scaries”, drop me a message and let’s get to work on finding you the right role. 

“The not-exactly-clinical diagnosis for this late-weekend malaise is the Sunday scaries, a term that has risen to prominence in the past decade or so. It is not altogether surprising that the transition from weekend to workweek is, and likely has always been, unpleasant. But despite the fact that the contours of the standard workweek haven’t changed for the better part of a century, there is something distinctly modern about the queasiness so many people feel on Sunday nights about returning to the grind of work or school”
