A7riii owner and total video newb seeks advice

Hi folks. I'm pretty good using the still photo function on the A7riii but man I suck at using the video. Specifically, if I so much as move a little bit while filming, there is insane levels of shakiness in the video.

Because I am a noob when it comes to video, the only change I make when shooting video is to switch to Wide focus. I do have steadyshot on. I am usually using the Sony Zeiss 35mm 1.4 when I shoot video, at a variety of Aperture and Shutter Speed settings. When I vary the shutter speed to make it faster, it doesn't seem to help much.

Am I limited to putting the camera on a tripod and letting it just sit there stationary if I want video that is at all watchable?

Thanks.
