Life or Economy? Does it have to be one or the other?
The fear is real. Fear of getting sick and overcrowded hospitals that won’t be able to take care of us if it is necessary. The fear of receiving information that a loved one is sick and worst case scenario – leave us for the angels..
On the other hand, every day there is the reminder that our society is closed down. I spoke to a good friend of mine in Norway and she told me that the government have imposed strict rules for every citizen. You are not allowed to leave your residential area, which means you cannot even travel or drive to your summer home or winter cabin, even if it is located in the same state. Police and military will stop anyone trying to get across the border. No-one comes in, no-one gets out. The freedom of movement we took for granted is gone. And we don’t even know if this is the right way to control the pandemic.
Then we have strong voices arguing that the economy must be saved. I am not saying that those opinions are not true. That we need to weigh sickness/death vs. the greater global economy. But I am questioning – does it have to be one or the other? Economy or lives? I don’t know, but what I do know is that we have taken it all for granted. Our health, economy, globalisation and freedom of movement.
Health is more important than ever. The resilient and healthy will stand after this pandemic. the sick will die. We still have the freedom to move – even though only in our backyard or living room. Please do that folks. Move your body. Get your heart rate up. Do your breath work for recovery. Get resilient. We have a choice to stand up for our health so we can go to work when it is time and to help the sick that is in need.
