Is there a good use for FOMO? And what the heck is JOMO? Brooke and Kel discuss.
This week Kelly and Brooke talk about something that’s come up a few times in the Let it Be group on Facebook – the topic of FOMO – the fear of missing out.
Not really one for FOMO Brooke talks about the reasons she used to fear missing out and the fact that most of it was related to her self-esteem. As that’s improved, she’s discovered she no longer really cares about missing out, and only uses FOMO to motivate her when she’s been in a bit of a rut. JOMO, on the other hand, is something she embraces wholeheartedly!
Kelly similarly has discovered that the more she recognises her choices in life, the less she fears missing out on things. It’s that realisation of choice and agency that can form the antidote to excessive FOMO, and that’s something both Brooke and Kel discuss in this episode.
