Dwell on These Things Inspiration Cards: 31 Thoughts to Align Your Heart with God’s Truth (5/25/21)

Based on the book Dwell on These Things by John Stange (5/25/21), this thirty-one-day inspirational card set will encourage readers to change the message that enters their minds into a positive, biblical one.

Eyelinez

According to a Stanford University study, one in seven women and one in 20 men face Zoom fatigue after Zoom video calls. One of the factors mentioned in the study suggests that staying centered in the camera’s field of view caused an increase in Zoom fatigue due to feeling physically trapped during a call.

I want to introduce you to one possible solution for Zoom fatigue. A company called Eyelinez, is helping with Zoom fatigue with a device to help people engage and focus on eye contact during Zoom calls.

Eyelinez creates small stickers to fit over your webcam or tablet to help people stay centered, engaged and focused during video calls. Eyelinez makes these stickers for multiple occasions such as smiling, focusing, or even just themed for the holiday season. These stickers can even be customized.
