When I began writing my book The Joy of Missing Out five years ago, digital wellness was a fringe idea. People got their backs up when you mentioned the words “phone” and “addiction” in the same sentence. Over the last few years, our understanding of the cost of our digital devices has grown exponentially.⁣⠀
Today, not a day passes without a new study revealing the true costs of our screen obsession: unprecedented global loneliness, unease and mental distress. Why? Because, while data informs us, relationships form us.⁣⠀
It turns out we need more than information to make meaning.⁣⠀
It’s been thrilling for me to watch @brenebrown and @drwillcole (not to mention @westin Hotels and @lululemon ) jump aboard team #JOMO, promoting the choice to choose bigger lives with more joy and fewer screens.⁣⠀
Let’s get this going, friends. Let’s #experiencejomo. ⁣⠀
