Recently, we took an R&R vacation to the Bahamas with Business Partners. “The best part about our industry is that we get to travel and be in different environments. The impact of experiencing different environments in our lives makes us more innovative and strengthens our creative mindset,” says Obi Shorinwa, managing director of Ora Group.
There is a particular importance of relaxing and recuperating also. According to psychology today, Susan Krauss Whitbourne Ph.D. writes, “Among the many debates swirling through the nation’s circle of pundits each year, is whether nation’s leaders should take time off in the summer for their yearly recess. As it turns out, though it may seem that they’re being irresponsible, perhaps they’re doing the right thing. Everyone needs a vacation once in a while. Though the average citizen may not experience the kind of mega-stress of a nationally elected leader, all of us have our own home-grown version of job-related stress. We may face the burden of meeting tight deadlines, making crucial decisions, or managing the complexities of household demands. Our stress may also include the stress of being under- or unemployed. All adults have lives that are filled with some form of stress, even if we don’t truly acknowledge this fact. Vacations have the potential to break into the stress cycle. We emerge from a successful vacation feeling ready to take on the world again. We gain perspective on our problems, get to relax with our families and friends, and get a break from our usual routines.”
At Ora Group, we believe that relaxing helps charge the mind and body. It helps be creative in a sense that one feels energized, it helps us be alive and in tune with our surroundings so that when we get back to our regular routines, we have a fresh mindset. We’ve enjoyed the Bahamas with our business partners. It was exciting to see that all these like-minded individuals were spending time together as a crew, to make sure that their 2018 starts off right and fresh. Time and time again, at Ora Group, we’ve realized that taking a mini break or vacation from the everyday hustle is the best reason to make sure the next work spree is in focus and you’re mind is charged.
