JOMO, the Joy of Missing Out, means “being present at the moment, giving yourself space to do exactly what you want, and skipping activities that aren’t authentic to you.”
Recently, I received the Joy of Missing Out book in the mail. Since I thought it was a fun book, I thought I would share this review with you.
JOMO, written by Jessica Misener, is a book that includes 350 activities that you can do with friends, with a partner, or alone, all from the comfort of your own home!
The book is about taking the time out for yourself to recharge yourself by taking a “stay-cation.”
JOMO is a list based book. You flip it open to any page and you can do that activity. Some of the interesting ventures include:
- Making your own ice cream
- Listen to a vinyl record
- DIY spa night
- Binge episodes of Friends
- Construct your own sushi
- Draw portraits with a friend
- Read Hemingway
- Find a penpal
- Play your favorite childhood game
There are 350 of these short paragraph activities and some sound a lot better than others but it’s still a fun read.
The author, Jessica Misener is a senior editor and her work has appeared on BuzzFeed, HuffPost, Cosmopolitan, The Atlantic and more.
