HI FRIEND, HOW'S YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PHONE GOING?
I don't know about you, but every time I pick up my phone or open up Twitter, it seems like the world is going the wrong way. But when I put down my phone to play with my kids, go for a walk in the neighbourhood or spend time with friends, I’m reminded of how wonderful and mysterious life really is. That's why I wrote The Joy of Missing Out and launched this community — to help make space for more of these moments. A countermovement to our always-on tech addiction, the Joy of Missing Out is gaining momentum as a conscious choice to disconnect and experience life offline.

What is a JOMO Quest? Think: awesome thing to do that’ll only take a few minutes and make your whole self sing. Anyone can do it. It pushes your edge a bit. It connects you in the moment.* (*FOMO is really about not being present.)
MORE JOY. FEWER SCREENS. BIGGER LIFE.

I'm Christina Crook. The human behind JOMO. Anil Dash (Hi Anil!) coined the term and I wrote the book and launched this community. It takes a village.
JOMO is growing. When I began writing my book The Joy of Missing Out: Finding Balance in a Wired World five years ago, digital wellness was a fringe idea. People got their backs up when you mentioned the words “phone” and “addiction” in the same sentence. Over the last few years, our understanding of the cost of our digital devices has grown exponentially. Today, not a day passes without a new study revealing the true costs of our screen obsession: unprecedented global loneliness, unease and mental distress. Why? Because, while data informs us, relationships form us.
It turns out we need more than information to make meaning.
It’s been thrilling for me to watch Dr. Brené Brown, Dr. Will Cole, Westin Hotels and lululemon jump aboard team #JOMO, promoting the choice to choose bigger lives with more joy and fewer screens. Let’s get this going, friends. Let’s #experiencejomo.

"I am loving the JOMO quests!"
"It's my favourite message. I look forward to it all day."
"I did the JOMO Quest and talked to my dear friend who now lives in Atlanta. We discovered how parallel some things in our lives are at the moment. And she can listen to me and I can listen to her while we talk over each other but it works and neither of us tries to solve the others problems... we just kvetch. (I'm not Jewish. It's just such a perfect word). Anyway. Lovely long and therapeutic talk. ❤"
"I might not always be able to do the quests but I'm always thinking about them."
