At a time when we’re inundated with everything from social media to the social scheduling of work appointments and family activities – enter JOMO: a social movement among those who see the value in disconnecting and taking time back for well-being.

Rivaling the millennial FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) trend, JOMO makes it socially acceptable to take a pass on our social or work obligations in exchange for extra sleep, exercise, meditation, or a break from technology – whether you’re at home or on the road.

On the road, business travelers tend to spend more time on their phone answering emails and scrolling social media apps which takes away from sleep, fitness, and well-being – it is no surprise then that nearly 3 in 4 travelers report they have trouble maintaining their wellness routine on the road.
