It’s very easy to get caught in the Fear Of Missing Out. We’re constantly bombarded by information that we could almost think this ‘’non-stop info flow’’ might be necessary to our survival. Whether we need it to find an escape, fill an empty space or feel desperately connected, if we don’t pay attention, we can easily miss the essential: do what we really want to do. If you keep being used by platforms that suck out your attention, it’s on you. Addiction to social media, news or online interactions is nothing but your bad usage of it. If you’re willing to change that, you can turn the fear into joy: the Joy Of Missing Out. Such a beautiful reinterpretation. As Svend Brinkmann explains, there is a lot of pleasure that can be derived from disengagement. This can be achieved by, first, self-awareness and second, a strategy to reduce temptations in your personal environment.
