New research published in the journal ‘Technology, Mind and Behavior’ has found that “zoom fatigue” is real.
“Zoom fatigue” is a type of mental exhaustion experienced by people working from home via videoconferencing tools.
Researchers discovered that being “on” all the time for video calls has increased stress levels.
The study found that excessive amounts of eye contact can become straining and anxiety-inducing.
The pressure of being watched or listened to during virtual meetings is also causing anxiety among those working from home.
Researchers recommend moving around during virtual meetings, as lack of mobility can make it more difficult to concentrate.
