On a scale of one to 15, how do you rate your ‘Zoom fatigue’?

From visual, mental and/or emotional fatigue to headaches, itchy eyes and reduced mobility, since the pandemic, ‘Zoom fatigue’ has emerged as a new issue for home workers to deal with. — AFP Relaxnews

“Zoom fatigue” is the expression coined to describe feelings of mental fatigue experienced following an excess of videoconference calls – a new source of angst for home workers and students since the onset of the pandemic. And it's a serious concern – so much so that researchers from Stanford University have developed a questionnaire to help people evaluate their level of Zoom fatigue.

Anyone whose days now consist of remote classes or work meetings is no doubt familiar with the tired and listless feeling after a long day of videoconference calls. Fatigue from staring at your computer screen all day, from being stuck on your chair, or from all that up-close eye contact – not to mention having to get used to seeing your own image onscreen, all the time, right in your field of vision, as you interact with co-workers. In the real world, it’s almost like having a mirror constantly stuck in front of you.
