When comparing yourself to others turns toxic

We are constantly comparing ourselves to people around us. While it can serve us by helping us grow, it can sometimes lead to hard feelings. FOMO is about having thoughts about missing out on opportunities which might increase our happiness.

One explanation for why we experience FOMO is that we are social beings and don't want to feel left out. Instead, we can practice an abundance mindset: There are plenty of opportunities around for everyone. Instead of feeling envy, try congratulating them.

Not feeling part of an event or the in-group could be enough for someone to experience a fight-or-flight response.

Know your triggers

Knowing what triggers your FOMO will help you get out of situations before they set off that alarm.

The biggest FOMO trigger is often social media. Your trigger might be seeing yet another friend buy their first home. You can expose yourself to less of the stuff that makes you feel like you're left out.

Thinking the grass is greener on the other side

It's important to remember that we live by making a series of trade-offs. We're always missing out on something. Choosing one activity or path inevitably means you'll miss out on others.

FOMO makes you miss out on today because you're so worried about what else is out there. You can win the battle with FOMO by being fully present in the life you have today.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green
