The ADHD Podcast — Fear of Missing Out FOMO

We’ve all been there, stuck between the rock that is our own responsibilities, and the hard place of the world that goes on when we’re not there to experience it. The grass is always greener, we say, and we find ourselves living in FoMO: the Fear of Missing Out. FoMO is magnified for some who live with ADHD, whether struggling with leaving a party at a reasonable hour, aware of an early morning deadline, or balancing whether to stay at home and do laundry, or go to a movie with friends. Online, FoMO is even worse, amplified by the constant signals of social media reminding you of the people you follow and all of the fun they’re having without you. But you can break the cycle! Today on the show, tips to address your FoMO and remind you of all the good right within your reach.
