A Spillover model of dreams and work behavior

Have you ever had a dream that stayed with you long after you woke up? Did it feel like the dream was trying to tell you something? A new study published in the Academy of Management Journal suggests that dreams can have a significant impact on our work behavior.
The study, titled “A Spillover Model of Dreams and Work Behavior: How Dream Meaning Ascription Promotes Awe and Employee Resilience,” found that recalling and ascribing meaning to dream experiences can elicit awe, an emotion that is associated with reduced self-focus and increased resilience. The study also found that employees’ openness to new experiences, or epistemic curiosity, moderates the relationship between awe and resilience.
These findings suggest that dreams can be a valuable tool for promoting employee resilience and productivity. If you have a dream that feels meaningful, take some time to reflect on what it might be trying to tell you. Ascribing positive meaning to your dreams can help you to experience awe, which in turn can boost your resilience and help you to achieve your goals.
