Video conferences are very stressful until and unless they are interesting. A fascinating factor should be created in the group which makes the meeting environment comfortable for all of them. Based on research which is published by APA (American psychological association). All the students and employees are switched to remote work, where this is the main factor that video conference meetings had increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Video Conference Meetings Lead To Fatiguing
Face-to-face meetings have diverged to digital meetings. From these computer screen meetings, many people were exhausting compared to face-to-face meetings. Video call fatigue has a major cause as in this modern digital world, many companies are conducting conference meetings and communicating with the employees through video conference meetings.
This video conference phenomenon may affect the person’s mental condition, which leads to a drastic change in human behaviour and slowly, they may not control their emotions by exhaustion. So, for the persons who cannot concentrate on video conference meetings, they can choose an alternative communication method through email or a phone call.
When it comes to a word of conference meeting, all the participants who are in the call should realize that they all are belonging to themselves and should create a good atmosphere that couldn’t pollute the meeting or participant’s minds from the fatigue feeling.
Socialization has welcomed all the lives of people. Even an introvert has learned being to become an extrovert because being an extrovert makes them feel comfortable from being alone. The communication in face-to-face meetings is particular on the person’s behaviour where we should maintain eye-to-eye contact and should behave ourselves without any distraction.
But, in video conference meetings, we can be just normal than face-to-face meetings. We can make ourselves comfortable, and eye-to-eye contact may be avoided in such meetings, which help in relieving our stress. Physically our body language and facial expressions matter in face-to-face meetings, whereas these can be avoided a little bit in video conference meetings.
According to a survey of students, many students are unlikely to the online video classes because a student has to stare at the camera and the class stiffly that he can’t change his position until the meeting ends. By this, students cannot concentrate on the subject instead of looking into the faces on such a large screen.
After socialization has made a digital world for every hour, it was named “zoom fatigue”. The google meets, zoom meets, etc., are the high usage source in the pandemic, which had exhausted many people. We all know that video conference meeting is how much important now in this situation of the pandemic world. One cannot sit stiffly throughout the meeting preferably should take small breaks and turn our head upside down which makes you comfortable and make yourself distress by walking around for few minutes.
There is a great way to decrease the exhaustion of video conference calls, The Chatbox, is the way to get relaxed which creates a good chatter and talk between the participants before or after the meeting that develops a feeling of belonging, and another way of reducing the video call fatigue is to avoid the meetings in the early afternoon. These two ways may help many of the students and employee’s from being exhausted.
Until and unless making an emotion of belonging within ourselves, video conference meetings are the perfect way to interact with other people.
