Being at work is one of the most common dreams people have because it's such a big part of life.
It could simply be that you are bringing your work home and are always thinking about it, even when you are off duty.
If you have a responsible role or are one of the only people who is qualified to do a specific task in your place of work, this might be why you can't switch off.
Do you need to plan in some down time?
Perhaps you are feeling some anxiety about a current task or project. Do you need to ask for help from co-workers to complete it?
The dream could be a pun for ‘get back to work’. If you have been doing the bare minimum lately- it might be time to put in more effort than you have been. People might have started to notice that your heart isn’t in it anymore. Your job could be at risk.
If you dream that you have been replaced at work- you may have some worries about the stability of your current job.
Do you feel like your time is running out? If so, it might be wise to leave before you are forced.
On the flipside, if you were replacing someone else- perhaps your general attitude is- ‘if you want something doing right- do it yourself’. Is this the right approach to have or does it leave you doing more than your fair share? Perhaps you need to learn to delegate and trust that others will do things to an acceptable level.
If you were looking for work in your dreamscape, perhaps you are no longer feeling fulfilled in your current role and are ready to move on.
More specifically, if you were applying for several jobs at once- you need a clearer career path. As it stands you don’t really have one and that could be the cause of your work-related frustrations.
