I woke up with a blast of colourful emotions. It was my first day as a brand ambassador for Reset Zone. In the meeting, I learned what exactly Reset Zone was all about. The idea of the app itself was super amazing. Reset all your emotions with 1-minute emotional wellness tools.
During the meeting, I thought to myself, Isn’t this marvellous? I realized how easy it is to forget about our own emotional wellness. We are so busy trying to conquer our battles each day that our emotions get set on the backburner. I was fascinated with how uniquely this app captured the emotional struggles that I found myself facing daily. Why wasn’t I introduced to this before?! This awakening was the beginning of my passion and dedication to work with this start-up company.
As a brand ambassador for Reset Zone, I organized interesting events for brand promotion. I also raised awareness about emotional wellness on campus. One of the events I organized took place at the Graduate House at the University of Waterloo. I quizzed the students with questions dealing with emotional wellness and health. The participation from the students was enormous! I got a great response, and the winner was awarded a free lunch at the University. In addition to these events, I also talked to potential partners like the Athletics and Recreation department, Engineering Wellness, just to name a few.
While working on my regular duties, I got immense help from the entire Reset Zone team. Heather Skoll, the founder of Reset Zone, came down to Waterloo many times to meet with me and discuss. She is a woman with unique ideas, deep insight, great inspiration, and a wonderful heart. I never felt that I was “just an employee”. I felt as if I was a family member. Her aura and energy are powerful and positive – it’s that sense of “home” that you feel when you are around your mother.
Throughout the winter term, I started to struggle. The detachment from home, no roommates in the flat, university pressure – I felt depressed and anxious. At that time, the companion that helped me the most to reset my emotional battles was Reset Zone.
The tool I used the most at that time was “Get Nurturing Support” under the anxious category in the app, developed by Mike Popovici. Every time I used the tool, I felt like I was peeling away the layers of my emotional distress. I felt so lightened and energized.
One of the benefits of this app is that I could use it anytime, anywhere and like magic, it could reset my emotional state. One day I was incredibly stressed after writing an exam, followed by an important meeting with one of the professors. I decided to use the Reset Zone tool “Shake Off Your Nerves” by Heather Skoll. Within one minute, I felt so much better! I could relieve all my nervousness from the exam stress, and I could concentrate on my next task.
I recommended this app to many people after all my positive experiences with it, and I got terrific feedback! In one instance, My friend’s wife was pregnant and feeling all sorts of emotions. She described it as a hurricane of emotional winds. She recounted that Reset Zone really helped her during those stages of pregnancy to overcome her distress. It helped her keep her emotional state at bay. She also felt the healing practices gave positive energy to the baby. She described Reset Zone to be a blessing for her.
My journey with Reset Zone has been full of beautiful experiences ranging from organizing events, talking to potential partners, and experiencing the app features myself. I wonder how difficult it would have been to overcome my struggles in a new country without this app. I can’t imagine how my life would have been without knowing the Reset Zone team. Their impact on my life is indescribable. It doesn’t feel like I’m working in a start-up company. It feels like a family — a very open-minded environment with an excellent culture. I do not want to leave this family ever!
