Does anyone else dream about work?
I’m not even sure if it’s dreaming, per se. But I’ll wake up at 4:30 am, and my mind will fill with work crap as I’m drifting in and out of consciousness. It kinda sucks.
Before I go to bed, I try the directed dreaming crap. I repeat to myself that I will NOT dream about work. I breathe in and out and as I exhale I instruct myself to clear my mind and let go of work stuff. I’ll even try to imagine fun scenarios that I would rather dream about. Like finding a nice guy.
Still, just about every night I have some kind of work dream. Or my mind starts focusing on tasks I need to do.
Which is only slightly better than those dark dreams I have when I’m searching for something (people, car, place to be) and I can’t get there and I struggle to move forward because it’s like I’m in quicksand.
