By now you may be familiar with "Zoom fatigue," that drain on our energy that comes with moving our lives, inside and out of work, online.
You already know the health benefits of time in nature. Here are some tips to get away from the screen when you can't be outside.
- Have some meetings over the phone rather than on screen. Not having to hold still so you can remain in the middle of a camera frame means your body can relax.
- Try planning projects, brainstorming, and writing to do lists on paper.
- Work movement into your day, with small breaks for stretching, walking around, or a mini-workout.
- See if you can carve out time during lunch and after work for screen-free entertainment, like a book or craft.
