Embracing the joy of missing out may seem overwhelming at first. The deck feels stacked against you. You’re not sure where to begin. I've got you covered.

Here are five simple steps to experiencing #JOMO today:

1 / Name your 3 people.

We can only love a few people well. Write down the names of three people you’ll invest in deeply this year. This will clarify how and with whom you spend your time. When it comes to relationships: go deep, not wide.

2 / Unsubscribe.

Unsubscribe from every e-newsletter and coupon saving email that flows through your inbox except those you absolutely love and use. Get them off your radar once and for all. The pennies you save are not work the mental real estate.

3 / Spend the first hour of the day wifi-free.

Begin your work day with no wifi. Cut it off. Dig into thinking work early on and take care of minor tasks later. Ride the focused and peaceful momentum for the rest of the day.

4 / Unfollow everyone on Facebook. 

Everyone. It will take about an hour but it will be worth it, we promise. Now, over the next week or so, start following the people you’re thinking about. Those are your people.

5 / Choose a new nighttime ritual. 

Bedtime is the easiest window to lose to social media scrolling. To nip that in the bud, start charging your phone outside the bedroom (you may have to buy an alarm clock.) Now, choose a  new bedtime routine. Read a book, have a bath, or enjoy some other nighttime activity (ahem) to get you ready for a solid night’s sleep. You’ll wake up more refreshed and ready to begin the next day.
