How to reload Zsh .zshrc Profile

If you have made a recent change to the Zsh shell profile file i.e. .zshrc file (located under ~ on macOS/Linux) and you want to reload Zsh to apply the changes, there are few ways you can try.

Option 1: Zsh Command

Simply run the zsh command again on the terminal. This will refresh and reload the Zsh Shell.

I have added an echo "ZSH File Reloaded!" just to test this out.
