Who doesn’t know it? The uncomfortable feeling usually starts to spread on Sunday afternoon.
Because then you remember again: Tomorrow is Monday!

Monday anxiety has even been officially researched and has a name in English: “Sunday Scaries.”
Definition of “Sunday Scaries”

It’s almost as if you’re counting the “good” hours until you return to the unpleasant daily routine.
