Opinion Column Ismael Cala: Even the very outgoing Kim Kardashian admits to suffering from the so-called cabin syndrome! And so thousands of people around the world.

After months with urgent messages for us to stay at home, suddenly recommendations arrive (in some regions) so that we go out to reactivate life.

Confinement has exposed us to information overconsumption. Virologists, epidemiologists and other specialists have become media stars to indicate the best procedures to follow. Many scientists have risen to the occasion, politicians have not.

All this has resulted in a cloistered, in the search for refuge from the evil that lurks outside. “At home, even the poor are kings,” wrote the great Lope de Vega.

Now, when it comes to recovering life, we can panic about events outside. Psychologists attribute it to emotional states of anxiety and depression. And there are even those who believe that there is no such cabin syndrome, but simply a refusal to return to the previous life.

However, let’s never forget that 66 days create new habits!

According to a study by University College London, it takes 66 days to turn a new goal or activity into something automatic. Research shows that there are not enough arguments to determine that in 21 days – as was believed – a habit can be incorporated.

Certainly, we did not set out to change the habit of going out, but simply to protect ourselves out of common sense. But, after months locked up, with new routines and the finding of alternatives to work, study, shop and have fun, something has changed. Logically, not irreversibly. It is the consequence of a defensive decision.

Personally, I have taken advantage of home time, reflecting, working and creating new projects; but I have not felt the syndrome of the cabin.

Despite the uncertainty, the advances and setbacks in the control of the pandemic, gradualism is the best way to resume our lives. Feeling fear is perfectly normal, unless that emotion freezes us.

Maximizing protection and taking the first step is one solution. When the competent authorities determine it, let’s put on the face mask, put the disinfectant in the backpack and go out to the streets responsibly. It also depends on us that the world, little by little, starts moving again.

Break the inertia, but safely

The “new normal”, in those countries that have managed to control the COVID-19 pandemic, is simply one more example of human resilience.

Once admitted that, without vaccines, we will delay in completely eliminating the virus, the world has put itself in a position to reactivate itself in the safest way possible.

Scientists work day and night on research, medical personnel remain on the front line to care for the sick, and all sectors reinvent themselves to lessen the economic impact.

Except for four or five irresponsible politicians, the vast majority join forces to stop the coronavirus and soon establish a new normal.

As the American writer Robert Tew says, “growth begins with the decision to go beyond your current circumstances.” That is precisely what we do now.

And one of the worst hit sectors has been tourism. I myself postponed some trips of consciousness in which hundreds of explorers always accompany me. However, we are already back on track to move forward under the conditions.

In a recent interview, Gloria Guevara, president of the World Tourism Council, confirmed to me that 35 destinations have already adopted protocols to reduce risks and travel safely as of July.

These include Iceland, Portugal, Jamaica, Panama, Mexico, Canada and Spain.

In this sense, it is important to know the mood of the people. A Universal Assistance survey, carried out in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, ensures that 50% of Latin Americans are willing to travel to international destinations in the next four to eight months.

The transport chosen par excellence is the plane.

According to the International Air Transport Association, the conditions of the planes are guaranteed.

And the biggest concern of some people, the air we breathe inside, is a matter that has been solved long ago thanks to the efficient filter system.

However, individual responsibility is critical to avoid setbacks. Masks, hydroalcoholic gels, distancing and extreme hygiene are, for now, keys to continue traveling the world.

Precisely, traveling safely is the theme of the new season of the television show Cala Mundos, which will include beautiful destinations in Europe, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Canada, Costa Rica, Argentina, Australia, Iceland, Greece, Israel, Colombia, Mexico and the USA.

Let’s break the inertia, but safely and sensibly!
