The combination of working from home and COVID-19 has caused an explosion of meetings. Impromptu conversations that took place in the hallway or lunchroom are now scheduled and take place online, or they happen at the beginning of other meetings, making those meetings longer and less organized. It can be particularly difficult if you work across time zones, as your day is stretched to accommodate earlier starts and late ends.

Meetings are often scheduled back-to-back with no time for lunch – let-alone a break to get coffee or go to the restroom. Even with shared calendars, meetings seem to overlap or are scheduled on top of other meetings.

Long days and back-to-back meetings are a recipe for burn-out. Here are some strategies that can help.
