The only times I've had the "Sunday scaries" was at a job that I absolutely hated, not because of workload. It may be the upcoming work schedule that's triggering the reaction, but I challenge you to ask if the actual cause is because you hate your job?

In my case it was the work load, project, team on the project, and it was all happening during the pandemic working from home, which I hated it.

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues.

I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
