Thrive Global Teams Up With Zoom To Launch Thrive Reset Zapp To Prevent Virtual Fatigue
Neuroscience shows it takes only 60 seconds to course-correct from stress. The Thrive Reset Zapp comes pre-loaded with default 60-second guides on topics like stretching, gratitude and mindfulness to help prevent virtual fatigue. It also makes it possible for users to create their own personalized Reset with guided breathing using the photos, quotes and sounds that bring them calm and joy. Users can share their personalized Reset Guide directly in a meeting, so they can not only create a collective moment of Reset, but share special moments from their lives to bring more authentic intimacy and connection to Zoom Meetings.

“If this year has shown us anything, it’s that we’re never going back to the way things were – and that Zoom is the new office,” said Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of Thrive Global. “Now that we’re all spending hours each day on Zoom, we need to create new rituals and practices within Zoom Meetings to prevent virtual fatigue. The Thrive Reset Zapp is about giving people simple tools that bring more humanity to technology and, to use a Zoom phrase, deliver happiness. You can use the Thrive Reset Zapp at the beginning of a meeting to start out fresh, in the middle of a meeting to stay focused, or at the end to help you recenter before moving onto your next Zoom. It only takes 60 seconds. We must create a new normal that empowers us to perform at our best at work, prevent virtual fatigue, and build deeper connections with our colleagues – all right here in the Zoom Meeting.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Arianna and the team at Thrive Global to launch the Thrive Reset Zapp,” said Oded Gal, Chief Product Officer of Zoom. “Arianna has long been a thought leader and influential voice on the relationship between well-being and productivity and we cannot wait for everyone to experience the Reset Guides that Thrive is bringing to Zoom through Zapps. It’s truly remarkable what you can accomplish in 60 seconds and how even small breaks can help you power through your day to prevent virtual fatigue and stay productive.”
