“FOMO.” What does it mean and the best ways to avoid it

ver hear this term being used? It’s a relatively new phenomenon with the onset of technology and social media. Now more than ever, we believe that others are having more fun than us, and if we don’t keep on the pulse of current events, we’ll fall behind to our dooms. And you know what? That’s absolutely right.

Therefore, we believe the best way to defeat FOMO is to say “no MO!” That’s saying no to missing out. Intrigued? It’s time society accepts that FOMO is here to stay, and instead of combating it, let’s embrace and totally conquer it. Allow us to tell you how:

STAY ON TOP OF EMAILS
As soon as an email comes in, you need to be notified immediately. Install notifications on your desktop, sync your smartphone with all your email accounts, and enable push notifications. Better yet, use an LG Watch Urbane so checking in on alerts is as easy as a quick glance at your wrist.

GET REAL-TIME FEEDS
Link your social media to all your mobile devices. Enable push notifications and continual updating to ensure you don’t miss a beat. This is where having a smartwatch is ideal. In idle moments throughout the day, you can scroll through all your feeds, tweets, pins, pics, etc. quickly, easily, and in one place.

GO TO EVERY EVENT
Experiences are impossible to recreate, so this makes it that much more important to live in moments as they happen. Be sure to check up on invites via email or Facebook. Keep them organized on a digital calendar either on your smartphone and smartwatch, but be sure to keep them synced.

GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND
When you’re bored and have nothing to do, realize that you just might be missing out on something happening at that very moment. If you don’t want to get left in the dust, get to searching what you should be doing next. For example, with an LG Watch Urbane speak these magic words into your watch: “Okay, Google.” Then ask away.

CREATE YOUR OWN FOMO
Although you should be trying to go to everything, we must concede that one really can’t be everywhere at once. That’s why it’s a good idea to make wherever you are at the moment appear like it’s the most important place to be. Make others want in on all the fun you’re having. How do you do this? With pictures and videos. Lots of them. The more you post, the better. Snap them on your smartphone or smartwatch and post often.
