If you think you might be struggling with a fomo (fear of missing out) phobia, ask yourself:
1. Do I understand that a fomo phobia represents a mindset and perception of negativity, deprivation, or loss, all of which are unhelpful and not part of a Longevity Lifestyle?
2. Am I know that each brain differs and that I teach my brain what is rewarding, which means I and can reteach it if my out-of-balance reliance on social media is giving me negative consequences now or is likely to in the future?
3. Am I aware that ‘comparisons are odious’ as the old saying goes and that envy and jealousy can derail me and actually destroy my life?
4. Do I often wonder if I am ‘missing out’ or do I realize that no one can ‘do it all’ or ‘have it all’ and that I need to be selective for what works for my brain?
5. Do I spend so much time on social media sites that I ‘miss out’ on living a balanced Longevity Lifestyle, accomplishing my goals, and developing a healthy relationship with myself?
6. Do I connect with others or overspend just to feel included or valuable?
7. Do I have my own goals and projects that work for my brain or am I trying to be affirmed and or succeed by hanging on to someone else’s coattails, beliefs, or attitudes or by trying to live life vicariously through them?
