What are Sunday Scaries?
When someone mentions “mental health,” what comes to mind?
Whatever images you may picture, you probably are not imagining a typical Sunday night and yet, for millions of Americans, this is when our mental health is at its worst.
In recent years, the public has begun to learn more about mental health and mental illnesses are starting to be treated like the serious medical conditions that they are. However, far too often, we forget that mental health and wellness affects us all, and a psychiatric diagnosis is not the only sign that something is wrong.
Take, for example, the so-called “Sunday Scaries”—a commonly used term for anxiety when thinking about an upcoming school or work week. From complicated co-workers to deadlines that come on just a little too soon, the Sunday Scaries is a common experience for millions of people.
If Sunday Scaries is something you think you may be struggling with, the good news is that there are solutions available, including (safe, legal and THC-free) CBD products, such as CBD oil, CBD gummies, and other CBD edibles.
What Causes Sunday Scaries?
Everyone experiences Sunday Scaries differently and, similarly, everyone’s condition will have different causes.
Sometimes, two days just isn’t enough to get enough rest and rejuvenation to start your week off on a positive note. Some of us might be having a difficult experience at school or work, may be swamped with high-stakes projects or struggling to transition to a new setting. Of course, some of us set ourselves up on a Sunday night for weekly stress by spending less time rest and more time partying, without enough time to fully recover.
Sunday Scaries are not the only reasons someone might be suffering from situational anxiety or extreme stress. Financial woes, difficult relationships, even dreaded family get-togethers can leave you wishing you had a quick fix for your anxiety.
How Do I Know if I Have Sunday Scaries?
Well, if you are experiencing stress and anxiety, it’s a pretty clear sign that something needs to change. If you spend Sundays dreading about the week ahead, put important projects off because of anxiety or feel like the Sunday Scaries are leaving you exhausted and unhappy, then it is an issue that you should be looking to solve.
Sunday Scaries (or any form of situational anxiety) may leave you unable to sleep or eat properly and may negatively affect your work performance and general temperament. If you are unsure of if you struggle with it, but your friends and family have been noticing signs, you should listen to them as well.
Having an anxiety disorder is not a prerequisite for Sunday Scaries, although many symptoms can overlap. In fact, some academic research suggests that anxiety related to an upcoming work week is one of the leading causes of panic attacks in America.
Other anxiety symptoms may include restlessness, irritability, avoidance, fatigue, troubles concentrating, and even digestive issues.
Should I Go to a Doctor If I Have Sunday Scaries?
In general, it is always a good idea to be open about your mental health with your doctor. However, it may be especially important to reach out in the following instances:
- If you are unsure what is causing your anxiety (i.e. Sundays, relationship problems)
- Anxiety is seriously interfering with your school, work, and personal life
- You have a history of mental health problems
- Non-medicinal approaches have not been effective at helping your anxiety
- You are experiencing suicidal thoughts
While you should be honest with your doctor about both your physical and mental health, it’s important to know that you can treat Sunday Scaries without medication and that your mental health matters even if your doctor does not believe you have an anxiety disorder. Of course, we cannot tell you whether your anxiety needs medication or not—that’s up to you and your GP.
Your doctor will work with you to find solutions that are tailored to your needs. Treatment options may include a combination of medication, therapy, and holistic options like meditation and CBD oil.
How Can I Treat Sunday Scaries Without a Doctor?
If you want to try a holistic approach that does not require insurance coverage or a prescription, then our CBD products, such as CBD gummies, vegan CBD gummies CBD tinctures, CBD vape oil, and standard CBD oil, might be right for you.
There are lots of ways you can start to approach your anxiety, from meditation and exercise to therapy and lifestyle changes. Of course, you can always quit your job or drop out of school.
