You've Heard of FOMO...But What About JOMO?

So we all have heard of FOMO, or the "fear of missing out", but according to Psychology Today, a new acronym will be taking 2020 by storm...JOMO, or the "joy of missing out". 

 

JOMO simply means deciding to not partake in certain social activities, but can also include social media, tourism, and entertainment. Basically, it’s the notion that it’s better to focus on what you want and like to do, and turn away from things that you feel pressured to do, or feel obligated but don't particularly want to do.

I for one 100% embrace JOMO: 2020 should be the year of doing things that create joy for yourself, and not so much pleasing others or doing things you think you have to do to feel accepted.

Do what makes you happy, because we only have a limited amount of time on this beautiful planet!
