The Lost Art of Doing Nothing by Maartje Willems, Lona Aalders | Book Review

Our lives are so crammed that it leaves little-to-no time for rest. When we do set aside time, we invariably get caught up in thinking of the next item on our to-do list or organising a drawer full of pens. Work, chats, chores, meeting friends - all of these demand time and attention and #FOMO keeps us from stepping back or cancelling plans to simple relax. But what if you could replace #FOMO with #JOMO a.k.a the joy of missing out? Welcome to the world of Niksen - the Dutch art of doing nothing.
