Our collective FOMO, and the disparity between the ideal and reality, is leading us to spend more and feel worse. No wonder were getting twitchy. Save for an Independence Daystyle alien invasion, how do we begin to escape from the stressors that make up our days?Jen Lancaster is here to take a hard look at our elevating anxieties, and with self-deprecating wit and levelheaded wisdom, she charts a path out of the quagmire that keeps us frightened of the future and ashamed of our imperfectly perfect human lives.
