According to the survey of 2,000 people conducted by One Poll for Premier Inn hotels, one in three dream about work when they are stressed in their job and a quarter stated that they dream about a colleague if there was a conflict with them earlier that day.
More than 20 percent polled admitted that they regularly dream about their boss, while another 20 percent dreamed 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.
"This poll shows that whether we are asleep or awake a problem with a colleague or stress at work can really affect us," the Daily Mail quoted Davina MacKail, dreams expert as saying.
"More than half of the nation stated that their dreams don't make sense so I have worked with Premier Inn to compile a Dream Dictionary to help dreamers to understand why they dream what they do and what those dreams mean," MacKail added.
