Thrive Global has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. to launch the Thrive Reset app for Zoom, the first in-meeting app that helps users de-stress and prevent meeting fatigue within virtual meetings in real time. The Thrive Reset app for Zoom launched and is now available in the Zoom App Marketplace. Sitting through back-to-back Zoom meetings has been one of many difficult experiences of the last 16 months. And the latest research from Microsofts Human Factors Lab shows how effective taking even small breaks can be in combating virtual fatigue. By using EEG devices to monitor brainwave activity, the researchers found that when participants took a short break between meetings, their brains showed a decrease in beta waves, which are connected to stress. Additionally, the study showed that back-to-back meetings with no breaks diminished their ability to focus and be engaged. But when participants took breaks to reset, their engagement held steady. Zoom Video Communications has been a lifeline during the pandemic, allowing people to work remotely and stay connected to family, friends and co-workers. But as Zoom has become the new office, virtual fatigue has become the newest form of technology-driven burnout. The goal of the Thrive Reset app for Zoom is to help people maximize the transformative technology of Zoom meetings, allowing users to feel less stressed, more connected and even more inspired. The Thrive Reset app for Zoom allows users to take breaks not just between meetings, but during meetings.
