Pavlov’s video call

You know you need to step away from the work desk when a Microsoft advert plays, and the sound makes you check you’ve logged out of work.

The sound of MS Teams notifications now makes me nauseous; the ‘bing bing’ of a call and the multi-tonal ‘thrum’ are triggers which increase my heart rate – my running watch confirms this.

We don’t notice this conditioning. It creeps up and changes you before you realise.

At that point, however comfortable you are working from home, you need to take a break and switch off. So I’ve booked a day’s leave today.

Switching off.

Have a good weekend.
