We all want to get a good night’s sleep, but it’s nearly impossible with the endless world of Instagram and TikToks. Here we see Ella, all brushed up and ready for bed at 10PM. She begins scrolling through her phone, and looks over at their alarm clock, 11pm, 12am, 1am, 2am, she becomes more disheveled as each hour passes. Finally, she reaches over to her side table, opens the drawer and grabs out a bottle of Sunday Scaries, lets out a sigh of relief and soon drifts off to sweet sleep.

Every day we struggle to confirm if we did or did not do something. Here we see a woman (Emma) on her way to work.

He will be so mad at me if I forgot. I know I forgot something.” But with Sunday Scaries, there’s no need to fret about the little worrisome things.
