Why you should resist the urge to multitask during Zoom meetings
It’s so tempting, but it can wreak havoc on your productivity. Here’s how to find your focus instead. And remember…it’s a two way relationship between the presenter and the attendee. Source We’ve all heard that multitasking is bad and switching between activities makes it harder to complete them. But let’s be honest—many of us multitask during Zoom meetings, especially as we enter the 10th month of working remotely and our Zoom fatigue has worsened. But checking email or making a grocery list can have a negative ripple effect you may not realize, says Dave Crenshaw, author of The Myth of Multitasking: How “Doing It All” Gets Nothing Done. “Switching between tasks can have four effects,” he says. “Things take longer. You are prone to making more mistakes. It increases stress levels. And you can damage relationships.” When you don’t pay attention, you miss important information, and when you miss important information, you need to take the time to either ask the presenter to go back or follow up after the call. “Either way, you’re wasting both your time and everyone else’s,” Crenshaw says. To reduce Zoom multitasking, organizers and attendees need to make some changes: THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ORGANIZER Part of the problem is that meetings are scheduled for too much time, Crenshaw says. “Time abhors a vacuum and will fill up the space you give it,” he says. “When a meeting feels too long, you will find a way to fill that time. We are a YouTube generation, and we’ve been conditioned to look at a screen and get an answer in a handful of minutes. Then we schedule a 60-minute Zoom meeting.” The responsibility is on the organizer to create a clear agenda and determine the shortest amount of time the meeting can take. This step can help prevent attendees from multitasking. Also make sure to include a buffer scheduled on both sides of a meeting. The Google Speedy Meeting setting automatically builds this in, or you can adjust your meeting time to leave a 5- or 10-minute buffer. “A small gap can be enough to respond to something urgent or take care of the basic needs of a human being,” Crenshaw says. “If you don’t have that buffer, you may feel anxiety wondering if something has shown up in your email inbox. Plus, it’s possible you’ll be late to the next meeting because you didn’t have enough transition time.” Another way to reduce the temptation to engage in other tasks during a Zoom call is to make sure everyone attending feels that they have a clear reason to be there. “It’s easy to copy and paste an email invitation, but a thoughtful leader will take a moment and customize an email to every attendee,” Crenshaw says. “Add a note that says, ‘I want you to be here to discuss XYZ.’ People will be more interested when they feel they matter. They’re more likely to multitask when they feel there is no point to being there.” THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ATTENDEE If you’re an attendee, you may not have control over the time or purpose, but it’s still important to pay attention. The first step is to reduce external distractions by closing nonessential windows, which can feel like a constant reminder of your to-do list. “Only have the Zoom meeting window open,” Crenshaw says. “And only pull up other windows if they become necessary to the meeting. This is just like in-person meetings where you turn your phone off or set it to silent and put it out of view.” If you’re easily distracted, Crenshaw says it’s completely fine to have a fidget toy that’s quiet and out of view. “This doesn’t require attention and can be soothing if you feel like the meeting is drawing long, which most of us feel at some point,” he says. “It’s a way to help you get through without the temptation of email or other programs that get in the way of your focus.” WorkWell Statement: Another effective way to commit your attention is by having your Camera On! Being aware you are visible will activate your ethical compass. Will guide you to behave in a similar way you would, if you were in a physical meeting.
“I’m so busy, I don’t have time to slow down”: the mantra of our times in this always-connected world. Source Technology promises to make our lives easier, faster and simpler. But, it’s made our world exceedingly unfocused and overwhelming. Smartphones and laptops mean there’s no division between work and home. Our brains, which grow linearly, are overloaded by the exponential complexity of technology, which deteriorates our focus and performance capacity. How do we overcome compounding distractions and evolve into higher-performing individuals? Enter the science of mindfulness. MINDFULNESS FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE Mindfulness is a systematic approach to reprogram our brain and master ourselves to always perform at our peak. Through conscious attention to your mind, body and emotions moment-to-moment, you create new synapses in your brain to build resilience, develop focus, and improve your leadership presence. Peak performance is the state of effortless focus where time slows down. In positive psychology, peak performance is also referred to as “flow” or being “in the zone”. For many elite athletes, flow enables them to cultivate clarity. The clarity developed from mindfulness builds your capacity to make better decisions, think more creatively, be an inspiring leader and live your life deliberately, with your own momentum, instead of getting dragged around by circumstance. Through various meditation techniques and breathing methods, we can observe our thoughts to identify habitual, unproductive patterns. For example, are we rehashing the past versus rehearsing for the future? Are our beliefs true or reflective of outdated assumptions? We learn to check in with ourselves to perform daily tasks with greater awareness that will expand to our relational and environmental interactions. “As our world grows exponentially more complex, our capacity to develop ourselves, teams and organizations will dictate the quality of our lives and distinguish our leadership” THE SCIENCE AND PRACTICE OF MINDFULNESS MEDITATION We’ve combined the ancient wisdom traditions of meditation with modern techniques from the latest business and brain research, tailored to the digitized, modern working environment. Meditation is a systematic approach to learning mindfulness, based on a set of proven tools, principles and verifiable results. By practicing meditation daily through this program, we develop our mindfulness muscle. Within this strategic habit building, you’ll fundamentally rewire your brain while learning to master your energy, focus and stress levels. Below are just some of the research-based cognitive, physical, social, and emotional benefits that result from mindfulness meditation: LET’S LOOK AT MORE RESEARCH “2/3 of the effectiveness of business leaders comes from their EQ rather than their IQ or level of work experience.” –Daniel Goleman, Psychologist and author of the NYT best-seller “Emotional Intelligence” Meditation reshapes the brain. Long-term meditation is associated with increased gray matter density in areas of the brain responsible for problem solving and empathy. Meditation trains our brains to improve our baseline well being. After just 8 weeks of mindfulness training, fMRIs of new meditators showed that their neural activity had shifted more from the right frontal cortex (associated with stress, anxiety, worry and sadness) to the left frontal cortex (associated with happiness, high energy, alertness and enthusiasm). Participants simultaneously reported their moods improved. They felt more energized, more engaged in work and less anxious. The top cause of stress in 2014 was work-related. Mindful meditation reduces stress, as the body releases fewer stress hormones and reduces neural connections to anxiety centers in the brain. “Eighty percent of organizations believe their employees are overwhelmed with information and activity at work (21% site this issue as urgent), yet fewer than 8% have programs to deal with the issue. – Deloitte Human Capital Trends Report Learn more about our Mindfulness Techniques
Eight Ideas to Reduce Employee Stress for Free
Keeping employee stress levels low is a common interest among business owners and managers. The less overwhelmed by stress employees are, the more productive they can be. Unfortunately, there’s not usually a big budget set aside for office stress relief. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we go over 8 ideas for free office stress relief. Offices aren’t the most relaxing places. Far from it. That is, unless you find countless meetings and deadlines relaxing. It’s not just offices themselves. Work’s just stressful. Always has been, and probably always will be. Try as we might, the more we invest money in open layouts, feng shui, or rewards, the office remains a source of stress for most employees. But even though we’ll never be able to pull stress out by the roots and eradicate it completely between the hours of 9-5, we can do something about it, lessen the effects, and here’s the best part: it doesn’t have to cost you a lot. Here a few free (or mostly free) ideas that can help your employees stop biting their nails and enjoy their work (we hope). Source: IncorporateMassage.com 1. Start A Walking Movement One of the leading causes of stress in the office—believe it or not—is the lack of mobility we experience during the workday. Sitting doesn’t seem that stressful, but it really is. And after sitting for 8 hours a day, people are usually pretty stressed out. A simple, cost-effective remedy is to walk more. Walking reduces stress, recalibrates us, and feels good. Problem is, when workers are left to their own devices, they aren’t going to get up and walk as much as they should unless they are the small percentage of extremely motivated people who cold press their own juice every day. For the rest of us, structuring a reward or incentive for the most stairs, miles, or minutes walked during the day is extremely helpful. Encourage people to put walking on their calendars—at least 10 minutes for every hour they end up sitting. The result is a less stressed office. 2. Encourage Daydreaming at Work In the professional world, having one’s head in the clouds has always been seen as a bad thing. “Get back to work” is what the top brass usually thinks when it comes to daydreaming. But structured daydreaming actually makes people more productive and less stressed. Google took on a form of this with their 20% rule, but you don’t have to do anything like that. Reminding (and encouraging) your employees to take a few minutes every hour to let their minds wander could pay huge, stress-relieving benefits. 3. The Office Pet Furry (or sometimes non-furry) friends are an amazing way to relieve stress inside an office. WebMD shows an interesting connection between playing with a pet and reduced stress hormones. Whether you buy, adopt, or just have your workers take turns bringing in their own pets, taking a few minutes a day to rub a dog behind the ears can do emotional wonders for us. 4. Fun and Active Stress Reducers at Work Work and play are always presented as a dichotomy. Apparently the two can’t (or at least they’re not supposed to) coexist. And that’s probably why our offices are pressure cookers for stress. Encouraging play in your office can take several forms. Innocent pranking might be one. But introducing structured play is probably even better. Start an office-wide fantasy league. Bring a Scrabble board into the break room. Since we’re talking free here, find someone willing to donate a ping pong table (you have no idea how much stress can be removed from your office by a double elimination ping pong tournament). However you introduce play into your office, make sure it stays lighthearted and simple. The effects can work wonders. 5. Stretching Exercises for Work Our bodies weren’t built to sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Sitting hunched all day, everyday doesn’t just make us sore—it makes us stressed. Stretching regularly comes with physical, as well as emotional, benefits. The trick here, is that you just can’t tell your employees to stretch because they won’t do it. You have to make stretching a priority. Make sure they know how to stretch. This might include posting new stretches on your intranet or break room. You can also dial things up a notch or two by conducting your own yoga classes. Just make sure you have a professional lead them in proper form to avoid pulled hamstrings.

It might also be one of the most effective. Breathing has a profound impact on our stress levels, but it occurs so naturally, that we hardly give it any thought. Teaching mindfulness and controlled breathing in your office might sound a little hippie or new age, but give it a try. The results will speak for themselves. Try this as a simple idea on how to start: Try breathing in synch with the below image If you would like to, try breathing in sync with this Or Ask Workwell about our Mindfullness Techniques 7. How Plants Can Boost Morale We also weren’t meant to sit under florescent lighting and drop ceiling panels all day. It’s just not good for the soul. Conversely, being in or around nature has a natural, soothing effect on us. Encourage your employees to bring plants in. Actually, you should bring plants in, too. Everyone should bring plants in. The greener your office, the better. And the less stressed out you’ll be. There are even plants that can help purify the air — an added bonus for all those breathing exercises you’ll be doing.

The Silver Bullet: Work/Life Balance Okay, there might not be any “silver bullet” to eliminating stress in your office, but this last idea pays big dividends, but it’s the hardest to pull off. In our current work culture, results matter. But those results often come at a huge human cost. The ultimate stress reliever lives within the control of every single company, and it’s called work/life balance. In other words: minimise long meetings cut out the late nights long hours weekend work and early mornings If you want a happier, healthier, and more productive office, let your employees enjoy their lives. They’ll be better for it, and so will your business.
