Getting Out More #GOMO

Contrary to popular belief, I am such a homebody. There is nothing that I would rather do than be curled up under a blanket watching a romantic comedy in the comfort of my own home.

However, working from home and staying in the house all summer can be a tad bit overwhelming. FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is real. Starting today I am going to make a real effort to get out and live. Evolving from FOMO to GOMO (Going Out More Often).

I’ve decided to come up with ways to help me GOMO and hopefully this will help other homebodies out there who want to be more interactive with the world.

Start By Doing Something That You Love Outside Of The House

If you love shopping, go out to an actual store. If you love watching movies log out of your Netflix account and go out to the movies, see something that you know you will not be able to see at home until years later. I love writing. I am going to write my next post outside, maybe at a park. Who knows, being out in nature will help my creative juices flow.

Try Dating

If you’re in a relationship, involve your partner in your plans to help end FOMO. Go on at least one date a week. If you’re single, the best way to get to know yourself is by dating yourself. There is nothing wrong with going places alone and loving on yourself. Besides who is going to love you, better than you? You can checkout websites like Eventbrite to see what is going on in your local area.

Take A Weekly Class

Have you ever wanted to learn to how to pole dance or make homemade sushi? Take a class. You don’t have to over extend yourself, but a few weekly classes can teach you tons of new things while helping you see how fun it is to get out of the house. Bring a friend along, it will be exciting learning something new together.

Go On A Staycation

Go somewhere you’ve never been in a nearby city. Get a nice hotel room but do not stay cooped up in your room. Go out and explore. Learn something new. Make memories.

At the end of the day I love being at home and that is who I am. But there is nothing more rewarding than going out and really experiencing life.
