Thanks Lynne,

Agreed, longer meetings can be tiring.

If we're doing anything more than an hour online, we try to include a quick
stretch break at the 1 hour mark, and a longer break after two hours.
(e.g. we schedule a longer meeting around lunchtime, so there is a section
before lunch and then after lunch)
