What’s JOMO?

Why are we talking about this?

💭 #1 — What are your digital habits?

Be mindful of our digital habits and acknowledge that some of these social and virtual ‘connections’ we see as necessary are actually ‘interruptions’ in disguise.

💭 #2 — Are you setting realistic expectations for your contacts?

Snooze your emails until the next working day

Embracing the Joy of Missing Out (JOMO) is the key to avoid burnout’s, as it helps us eliminate the unrealistic goal of always being in-the-know.

💭 #3 — Are you setting meaningful productivity goals?

True productivity is to focus on setting the right to-do’s for the right purpose that lead you towards fulfilling and meaningful work.

And remember… off time is (really) off time

We should establish healthy usage of technology by treating work-life balance seriously: when it’s time, switch off your apps and give yourself the enough time and space to wind down.
