The world is resetting. This is good for us and the planet.

The world is resetting. This is good for us and good for the planet. Here´s why.

It is time for a creative revolution and it feels like we are already in one. A revolution of thinking and lifestyle will follow. Things are changing fast and will never be the same again.

History shows us a pattern after crisis times and pandemics. After a crisis what usually happens is attitudes and lifestyles change as people realise how good things were before the thing happened.

There were two very serious pandemics to hit in the last decade. There was a wave of Spanish flu in 1918 which took its toll. Then the roaring twenties followed with dancing, romance and a full-on fashion explosion. After the Asian flu epidemic in 1957, we had the swinging sixties kicking in directly after this with a revolution of colour, style and embracing freedom.

History shows that after a pandemic there is a brief economic crisis followed by a decade of consumer boom with an explosion of new creativity with a flourishing art, music and new fashion scene. When you try to put humans down and contain them, they usually rise up and start finding new ways of enjoying themselves and get back to dancing again.  Somehow we become more grateful and appreciative of the simple things like food, health, and family. 

It is possible to suppress people and hold them down at times of trouble but as soon as they are allowed to let go, then there is a backlash and people let loose. They want to make up for time spent in fear and confinement. People want to get social and let themselves go. Cue a move to hedonism, partying and some good times straight after the difficult times. 

Many people are diving in deep with new creative projects and looking at ways to restructure their businesses while we are all at home and online.  so much is changing so fast and it’s unlikely it will ever go back to the way it was. We have learnt how much easier it is to do tasks on-line that we will probably continue with these new ways once the sanctions are lifted.

I live in Ibiza and we are all talking about what we will do when we are allowed to go out of our homes after lock down and hug and kiss and dance again. We all want to have this time where we can move freely again, see friends, meet up with family and enjoy some social times. Even the introverts have been feeling hemmed in during the lockdown.  

There is a reset and we will come back into the world changed with a different view and a different set of priorities. We are already seeing people being kinder to each other, helping one another, sharing resources and growing food. Ultimately, we will be more gentle and more appreciative of what there is in front of us and hopefully kinder to the planet too.

It is what the whole world needs right now on so many levels – a hug, a kiss and a dance.

When this thing finishes, let the party begin.
