I find long periods on Zoom really tiring. What can I do to make it more manageable?

As these researchers found Zoom fatigue is real! We’ve scheduled the congress with breaks of at least 30 minutes between sessions, but we know it can still be challenging. Here is some advice for making a long day on Zoom more manageable.

  • Looking at ourselves all the time is unsettling so turn off self-view (click on the three dots … in the corner of your image and choose ‘Hide self view’) or turn off your camera
  • Get away from your screen during the breaks, ideally going out for some fresh air or a walk
  • Don’t feel you have to always be looking at the screen. Allow yourself to look out of the window, doodle or just stare into space so you can really focus on what is being said
