You've probably heard the expression "FOMO," fear of missing out, but The Doctors want you to actually relish that time alone with some "JOMO", the joy of missing out!
There are actual health benefits, rooted in science, for taking alone time. One study out of SUNY Buffalo found alone time increased creativity. There are also findings that it increases productivity and empathy.
