Have you ever been scared of being far from your cell phone or other intelligent devices? Do you check your cell every morning you wake up? Do you have your personal, secret life in your cells far from your real life? Then, you might be suffered from FOMO, the fear of missing out. In this podcast, we learn what FOMO is? What are its signs? How we can diagnose it and Finally, how we can confront it? Let’s listen to this topic in Persian language and learn Persian and beyond.

FOMO stands for “fear of missing out”. In Persian language it is called ترس جا ماندن, and it describes the feeling of anxiety or worry that you are missing out on something exciting, interesting, or important that others are doing or experiencing. FOMO can be triggered by social media, where you see your friends and acquaintances posting about their activities, achievements, or opinions. It can also be caused by having too many options for your free time, or by feeling the need to stay in the loop with the latest news and trends.

FOMO can have negative effects on your physical and mental health. It can make you feel unhappy, dissatisfied, lonely, insecure, or jealous. It can also make you overcommit to social events and activities, leading to stress, fatigue, burnout, or poor performance. FOMO can also make you do things that you don’t really want to do or that go against your values, just to fit in or avoid being left out.

How to overcome FOMO?

But how can you overcome FOMO and enjoy your life more? Here are some tips that we will discuss in this podcast:

•  Be mindful of your emotions and thoughts. Recognize when you are feeling FOMO and ask yourself why. Is it because you are comparing yourself to others? Or, Is it because you are afraid of being rejected or isolated? Is it because you are bored or unhappy with your current situation? Try to challenge these negative thoughts and replace them with more positive and realistic ones.

•  Limit your exposure to social media. Social media can be a great way to stay connected and informed, but it can also be a source of FOMO. Try to reduce the time you spend scrolling through your feeds and checking your notifications. Set boundaries for yourself and stick to them. For example, you can turn off your phone at night, avoid checking social media during work or school hours, or limit yourself to a certain number of minutes per day.

•  Focus on quality over quantity. Instead of trying to do everything and be everywhere, choose the activities and people that matter most to you. Prioritize your goals and values and pursue them with passion and purpose. Spend time with people who support you and make you happy. Engage in hobbies and interests that bring you joy and fulfillment. Quality over quantity means doing less but doing it better.

•  Practice gratitude and appreciation. FOMO can make you forget all the good things that you have in your life. To counter this, practice gratitude and appreciation regularly. Make a list of things that you are grateful for, such as your health, family, friends, skills, opportunities, etc. Express your appreciation to the people who make your life better. Celebrate your achievements and milestones. Gratitude and appreciation can help you feel more satisfied and content with what you have.

•  Learn something new and exciting. FOMO can also be a sign that you need some novelty and stimulation in your life. Learning something new and exciting can help you break out of your routine and expand your horizons. It can also boost your confidence and self-esteem. For example, you can learn a new language, such as Persian language. Persian language is a beautiful and rich language that has a long history and culture. Learning Persian language can help you communicate with millions of people who speak it as their native or second language in Iran and beyond.
