London, Dec 11 (IANS) If you think heavy workload, conflicts and nagging bosses spoil just your dreams everyday alone, it is not so. For many British workers are also bugged by the same problem and unable to leave that headache at workplace.

Trying to leave work at the office is proving to be a challenge for many British workers, with research revealing that heavy workloads, conflicts and bosses all make an appearance in dreams, the Daily Mail reported.

Work-related issues were the number one topic featuring in dreams, with colleagues creeping into shut-eye time more than celebrities. Over 20 percent polled admitted that they regularly dream about their boss.

According to the research one in three dream about work when they are stressed in their job and a quarter stated that they dreamt about a colleague if there was a conflict with that person earlier that day.

Of the 2,000 people surveyed, 20 percent dreamt more if they were under pressure or stressed. The poll found that the average person dreams most nights, with only 12 percent saying they never dream.

Dreams,however, often leave people confused, with 52 percent saying they do not make sense and 60 percent wishing they could know what they mean.

Commenting on the survey carried out by One Poll for Premier Inn hotels, dreams expert Davina MacKail said: “This poll shows that whether we are asleep or awake a problem with a colleague or stress at work can really affect us.”
