The REAL Problem with Zoom
Most advice on dealing with Zoom fatigue suggests taking more breaks, spreading out meetings, turning off your screen, and other strategies. These are all good suggestions. But they do not get to the root of the problem.
The REAL problem with Zoom and other video meeting platforms is that your brain and nervous system get caught in a vicious loop.
Effects of Zoom Fatigue
Your vision narrows - you only see the screen.
This limits your focal length cause eye strain. This can cause pain in your neck and tension in your face.
Poor posture - your posture rounds.
This puts strain on your back, neck and shoulders. You can try to 'sit up straight' but then you go right back to being hunched over.
Your energy is drained.
Your mind gets foggy and it's hard to focus.

Why Feldenkrais Lessons?
Feldenkrais lessons are verbally guided movement explorations comprised of novel combinations of movements and awareness that change your unconscious movement habits.
Most of our movement habits are outside our conscious awareness. Meaning we do them, but we don't know how we do them. Feldenkrais lessons bring into awareness the how of our movement. As you become aware of your habits in the lessons, we explore variations that introduce new ways of moving that are more harmonious with your intentions. Meaning you can do more of what you want to do with greater ease and purpose.
