Feeling Virtual Media Fatigue?
The recent pandemic has transformed the everyday lifestyle across the world. The way we communicate and interact socially it has shifted to Zoom, Skype, and other virtual media platforms to connect.
Feeling the virtual media fatigue?
Feeling very tired after your time on zoom or other media platform?
Wondering how to make your online presence more comfortable?
Are you spending a lot of time connecting with loved ones and/ or work via a screen?
Are you getting more aches and pains in neck, back and shoulders, from sitting and looking at a screen?
You might have found that at the beginning of the self-isolation, you welcomed and craved the sight of your loved ones’ faces. Seeing them on the screen and hearing about their lives helped you to connect with them and allowed you to orientate to your newly ‘house-bound’ life,
It has now been over three months that most of your outings, dinner parties, social gatherings and lunchroom chats have been replaced with Zoom chats, you might have noticed a change. You are spending more time looking at a screen and talking for long time generally in the same position and your neck, back and shoulder are getting sore. Even your forearms wrist and hips are becoming uncomfortable. Also, your eyes might feel strained and drained after a day of screen time. Even your sleep might be disrupted due to too much blue light in the day and starting to change your melatonin balance to help you sleep. How can we find that new balance?
On the one hand, it is good that we are getting on with our regular job tasks and are not lagging behind. That during a zoom meeting we can have our beloved pet on our lap while a colleague is talking. We have the opportunity to spend more time with family and with each other, which with the regular busy schedule, was not possible.
Still, on the other hand, it is leaving us with severe health consequences, as spending extended time in front of digital screens is resulting in eye strain, lack of sleep, neck, back and shoulder pain, fatigue and poor emotional and physical well being.
The COVID-19 global pandemic is likely to persist for some time longer and will continue to be challenging beyond the challenges presented by virtual meetings, teachings, and training.
