Showing up late: You may be feeling overwhelmed with your daily responsibilities

Dreaming about being late to something, like work or school, could indicate anxiety over your fear of being late or failing to accomplish your daily tasks. If you’re someone who struggles with being on time and often shows up more-than-fashionably late, then these dreams could be an expression of the guilt and self-consciousness you feel as a result of your perpetual tardiness.

If you’re someone who never fails to arrive early or on time, you might still experience anxiety over being late if the prospect tends to cause you undue, or even irrational feelings of stress and nervousness. Perhaps you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by your responsibilities and worry that you won’t have enough time to accomplish everything you need to get done. Your dreams about showing up late to work or school might be a sign you bit off more than you can chew, and you might want to consider reworking your schedule to make your daily responsibilities more manageable and less stressful.
