The human experience depicted by the media is never the whole truth — and often an outright lie.

Living with constant or recurring fear, from post-traumatic stress to paranoia to FOMO, doesn’t improve life quality; it just makes us haunted and tense.
Our task is to live in a FOMO-plagued world without catching the virus.
Realize that the only thing any of us ever has is the moment we’re living now. And we don’t have to let FOMO pull us out of it, into a fantasy that can never be realized.
Stop and appreciate a cool drink of water. Stop and rejoice in the knowledge that since FOMO is generated by your own mind, it can be halted there without one iota of physical effort.
What if we let FOMO mean something else?
Try inventing your own FOMO definition.
FOMO is the experience of worrying that other people are doing more interesting things than you, have more friends than you, and are just all around living a better and cooler life.
The prime source of FOMO is of course social media, which allows you to peruse the highlights of other people’s lives in real time.
