Jena Lee, MD Psychatric Times November 17, 2020
This excellent article helps explain why video meetings can be so draining and often feel less rewarding than face to face meetings. The lack of body language cues and eye contact combined with the lack of physical movement are all important factors. Dr Lee's final statement is that: 'Exploring alternative and more explicit ways to improve perceived reward psychologically during virtual communication may be a therapeutic approach for not only Zoom fatigue, but the mental and physical toll that come with it'. With VMS we are at the forefront of doing just this and the results so far are hugely positive - Video Meeting Signals make a big impact on the problems Dr Lee identifies.
