How To Get Rid Of Your Sunday Night Anxiety

Not long ago, when I worked in investment banking, at exactly 7:30pm on Sundays, I would get serious anxiety just thinking about the workweek ahead. I didn’t like my job. Actually, I hated it. My anxiety was so bad that my body would cramp and my attitude always turned crappy. It got to the point where I couldn’t enjoy Sunday dinner with my family. It was terrible.

I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self indulgent Caring for myself is an act of survival
Now, at the same time on Sundays, I no longer dread Monday. A matter of fact, I get EXCITED and CAN’T WAIT for the week ahead. The journey between investment banking and my current career wasn’t easy but worth the walk and it all started with one step, literally.

Do you have anxiety thinking about your workweek ahead? Do you literally feel sick just thinking about going into the office tomorrow? Then, what are YOU going to do about it? Remember, every journey began the same way – with a first step.

You are responsible for your happiness and the only way to change your life is to own your power. Directly face the fear keeping you in your current position by taking swift and bold action. Take your step, don’t wait, get started now!

“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.” ~Les Brown

Dear Paul thank you for sharing your story of Sunday night anxiety. Your article made laugh and praise God. I felt like you were me when I was reading the article because 3 months ago for 5 years that was my story…experiencing awful anxiety, body aches, and dread. I also worked at a global, well know large investment bank and my terrors would start about 5pm every Sunday. As a Christian, a certified professional life coach, a positive person I hated those feelings and always tried to coach myself out of them and express gratitude for my job, it worked… Read more »

Thanks for sharing! I don’t dislike the company I am employed with, nor do I dislike my immediate team/workmates. I do dread the work week at times, simply because of the interaction with other areas in the company. Many people don’t share the vision of the company or doing what’s in the best interest of the client. For those reasons, I sometimes get the M, Tue, Wed, Th. blues!

Very well said Luvly…I feel that way at times as well!

Thank you for sharing your story. I have been going through this for years. For some reason I dread monday mornings. My coworkers are fine, my work is fine but I’m still a “newbie” to the organization so there is some anxiety there.

I have frequently had those feelings because I felt isolated and could do very little about it due to my attraction to men. In an environment where ‘hetero’ is in and ‘homo’ is out or so it seems, it is difficult to just do the job that I love with these types of folks. I have been able to say: Psalms 1:3:And he (I) shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. I rest on this scripture… Read more »

I never had ‘Sunday Blues’ until a few years ago when I started to outgrow my love for my profession. It is so important to take that first step towards what will make you happy. It’s also important to get direction from the right people like Paul. You’ll know who is right because they are authentic and walk the talk.

I start a new contract tomorrow and have Sunday excitement right now.

Thank you Paul for sharing this today on Facebook (9/8/13)! This article made me break down into tears because my biggest anxiety happened last Friday in front of my own co-workers. I felt truly embarrassed & unaware what they were saying about me after the fact but my 2 closest co-workers didn’t even check up on me after the day was done. That was my sign for me to start looking for a better position that will fulfill my purpose, instead of caring about others who don’t care about me & my purpose.

How do you get started and still pay your bills? Nobody ever seems to address that part.

I actually enjoy my job/career. However, I feel so overwhelmed many times with my responsibilities and significance of my position that it causes me to dread the the work week. I would like more strategies on coping…preparing for that kind of leadership and responsibilities. Beyond my woes, this is a great article. Thank you for sharing.

I have this experience a lot. I actually love my job, but I still get anxiety over the week in general.  I think about the work that needs to be done and various activities I am trying to juggle after work is over. Recently, I have tried not to take life so seriously.  Whether I sit there and stress or choose to be appreciative of the days off I have had, the week is still coming.  So I am CHOOSING to to be grateful and enjoy it.  Thanks for the post!

Hello,I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.When I asked him why… Read more »
