Zoom fatigue is real — here’s how to fix it

Zoom fatigue fixes: Here’s what to try

  • Minimize the size of your Zoom window to cut down on anxiety and stress.
  • Hide your self-view window by right-clicking on your photo.
  • Try placing your webcam further away to give yourself a larger area to move around in.
  • Opt for audio-only calls sometimes so you can focus on what’s being said instead of expressions. 

Using Zoom might be easy, but the video chat app is apparently wearing down so many of its users that Stanford researchers have investigated the causes — and suggested some remedies.

The paper, published in the peer-reviewed Technology, Mind and Behavior journal, identified the four main causes of “Zoom fatigue” and how users can minimize the risks. Author Jeremy Bailenson, a Stanford professor and founding director of the Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL), noted that many of these fixes are simple UI tweaks.
