“These days, I’m choosing to miss out
And, to have much to laugh about.
There’s nothing to miss
When I follow my bliss.”
— The JOMO Manifesto, Jordana Reim
THE FEAR VS THE JOY OF MISSING OUT
FOMO, or Fear of Missing Out, varies in intensity and occurrence for everyone. However, it never brings true joy. Our decisions stem from either fear or love, with the former bred from scarcity and uncertainty, and the latter from abundance and contentment.
JOMO, the Joy of Missing Out, counters FOMO. It needs daily practice for sustainability and involves self-growth, emotional intelligence, and self-care. It helps us manage life's overwhelming choices.
Use this book and journal for your journey towards joy. Spend your time as you wish, and let joy be your essence.
ART FOR A CAUSE
Experience JOMO-inspired art in the journal from some of our favorite artists we’ve met in our journey through the digital art world. These one-of-a-kind pieces, also known to some as NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens), can be purchased through the QR codes in the journal glossary. The proceeds from each sale go to mental health non-profits we support at Peace Inside Live.

We hope to make well-being part of the source code of the Metaverse. The future of our connected culture from Web3 to AI is a space of possibility, so why not make it one filled with joy, community and support. We strive to build a world where well-being is the first thought–not an afterthought.

Long-time friends, Shira and Jordana became close when Shira began her own personal growth journey. After having some major high and lows building her business, What’s Trending, she lost herself in the process. When Shira saw that Jordana, who had once been in the corporate world, was now guiding retreats in the Himalayas, Shira’s intuition told her she might need a bit of whatever Jordana had been finding.
In 2019, Jordana was leading a transformational meditation and hiking retreat to the Base Camp of Mount Everest, and Shira was the first to sign up. It was during this trip, at 4,410 meters above ground, that Shira and Jordana bonded over a desire to create mind-shifting content to nourish others. They both wanted this matter to be accessible to anyone awakening to the possibility of living outside of highly-anxious social norms.
After a few months of content creation, however, Jordana got stuck in Thailand when the pandemic hit. Since her retreat couldn’t happen that year as planned, she and Shira ran it online as the “Peace Inside” Retreat. Born was the idea that wherever you are stuck, either physically or mentally, you can find Peace Inside.
Shira and Jordana partnered to create a sense of this retreat in our everyday lives. Never wanting people to be without a mental health resource, they tirelessly ran classes seven days a week, partnering with their favorite practitioners from around the world.
In 2021, as video-conference fatigue set in, their first Web3 project was ignited through a referral by Josh Kriger from Edge of NFT and Outer Edge LA. For over a year of collaboration, they provided Peace Inside wellness utility in their Discord and through Twitter Spaces. Jordana and Shira are both NFT collectors and Web3 builders who want wellbeing for all. As the industry is ideated, built and grown, they continue to find ways to meet others inside, wherever they are.
