Just got a fidget cube because I’m self-conscious about how much I touch my face on Zoom calls. Has anyone else done this or something similar?

No but I seriously need one! I keep messing with my hair and checking how I look when everyone just seems engrossed in the discussion or with each other. Otherwise I’m focused on working / mulitasking while on I’m zoom calls... 😅

No. But I do keep a bottle of sanitizer next to my laptop, so some calls I have to use it two or three times, as I keep forgetting not to touch my face

That's a great idea, I'm going to look that up! I have anxiety and a tick caused by my medication that makes me touch my face / pick and I have wondered what to do with my hands

Happy to help a fellow creative

I turned off self-view, it helped a lot.

I'm usually presenting, but when I'm not presenting I've been known to play with a grip master, knife, or something super random on my desk.

Ah a nose picker

Possibly worse... an eye-itcher. I’m sure the 25 hours of screen time a day during the quarantine don’t help me

I had one already that I never used but now I use it constantly to keep my hands busy on video calls

Got a fidget spinner a couple years ago for that reason. Helpful

I pet my cat on my lap. Sometimes little ears pop into view but no one gets mad about it
