OMO reverses play deficit amongst consumers in 3x power challenge

Our family recently attended a wonderful event by OMO 3X Power Challenge at Jozi X where we were invited to Play. Why you may ask? Its because life’s pressures can often lead to stress, burn out and very little time to slow down.

In 2015, a study released by Bloomberg reported South Africans as the second most stressed society in the world. With pressures of modern life like increasing time constraints, shrinking of roaming spaces and technology, children and adults are missing out on a vital aspect of their development: PLAY.

Even though experts agree that there are multiple and wide-ranging benefits associated with the use of technology in our daily lives, ‘screen time’ is perceived to be a key barrier to getting families outdoors. Nearly eight out of ten parents (78 per cent) admit that their children often refuse to play without some form of technology being involved.


The OMO Jozi X event

We were invited to the OMO Jozi X event in May and the challenge was a 2-hour obstacle course laced with muddy booby-traps and lessons that encouraged teamwork and all the fun adults forget as we navigate our careers, family and social lives.

We were placed into teams and then partook in paintball, archery tag, battle rush endurance course, 1 km field run and a slippery slope into very muddy waters, exemplifying that dirt really is good! It was so much fun and wonderful to be outdoors and active.

The OMO 3X Power Challenge proved that opportunities for play are abound. Don’t let the prospect of looking silly be the stumbling block to a healthier less stressed life. Allow the dirt to free you up and let OMO take care of your laundry.

Dirt Is Good!
