The new year provides an opportunity for us to make resolutions, set intentions, and establish professional and personal goals. As we dive into 2022, what better way to track your progress than in your everyday syncs, meetings, and social gatherings?
Zoom Apps enable you to make and sustain your positive initiatives. Let’s take a look at how these apps can be used to support health, wellness, and gratitude in the new year.
Start daily practices: Wellness Coach
Connect with your coworkers by participating in custom team wellness challenges with the Wellness Coach app for Zoom! The new Launch-A-Challenge feature allows you to easily create fun and engaging competitions that support your mental, physical, and emotional health. You can even invite your friends and family to join in! Wellness Coach features goal tracking, private coaching, daily meditations, and a variety of on-demand music, stretches, and more to help you and your team stay energized, focused, and engaged throughout the workday.
Enjoy moments of mindfulness: Thrive Reset
If you’ve ever spent hours in back-to-back virtual meetings, you are no stranger to virtual fatigue. That’s why the Thrive Reset app is a must-download for anyone looking to reduce stress in the new year. Choose from a variety of breathing, stretching, and gratitude “Resets” to help you reduce stress in just 60 seconds — before, during, or after your meeting. Neuroscience shows that we can course-correct from stress in 60 to 90 seconds. That’s all it takes to complete a Reset.
Give back: Donations by Pledge
Did you know that gift giving can increase serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin levels? Produce more “feel-good” chemicals by integrating generosity and gratitude into your daily life with the Donations by Pledge app through Zoom. You can support causes you care about through charity galas and nonprofit fundraisers, virtual celebrations, school fundraisers, corporate events, and more. Donations by Pledge allows meeting attendees to create a fundraiser in minutes, add a Donate button to any Zoom meeting, thank donors via an interactive donation experience, and more.
