I thought video calls would leave me happy vs. exhausted --- because at least it's a way of social interaction (which I need as an extravert).
Face-to-face digital interactions with back-to-back video calls haven't been in my favor when it comes to my actual attention span. I think it has to do with the fact that it requires a new focus that's actually harder than the face-to-face approach for me.
And although communication is key, I think reducing video calls, especially when it comes to work meetings is something I'd like to be enforced more often. And I'm learning to say "no" to more video meetings. Does anyone else agree that their brain isn't wired for full-time video zooms and then full-time social life catchup zooms? Would love to hear everyone's thoughts!
