A Daily Routine is Essential in an Age of COVID-19-Bell & Ross Replica Watches

I get it. I get it. You want to pull the covers over your head. It doesn't matter what day, week or month it is. You don't care a damn. You'd rather drink your arse, stutter around in semi-comatose, and wear the same sweat-stained sweat pans every week. It's not hard to understand because it was what I did. The shock that precedes the five stages, as described by Elizabeth Kubler Ross, was what we were experiencing. We were feeling the Armageddon-like effects of the invisible,Patek Philippe Complications Replica silent killer COVID-19. We watched in horror as Spain and Italy set alarming death rates. And we watched helplessly as the elderly, and those with underlying medical issues, were inevitably killed.

We thought about our parents, and stayed up all night worrying. We wept uncontrollably when we saw first responders and health care workers answer the call, often sacrificing their lives to help others. We wept as we watched inadequacies and buffoonish leadership at every level of power. Then we broke down again when we saw men like New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo and US Navy Captain Scott Crozier rise up to the challenge. We heard great leaders such as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth tell us exactly what we needed to hear.

We woke up realizing that this was it. This is our new reality. Is the virus under control? There are varying degrees of success, depending on where you live in the world. The only way to get through these is to stay at home. Recently, I posted an Instagram photo of a WWII soldier carrying a donkey up a hill. Why? Because if you don't, the donkey will run into a minefield and kill everyone. You are the donkey to those who were enjoying a picnic in London last Monday because it was 22 degrees. We are going to be blown away.Blancpain Replica Watches To get out of this lockdown, which is likely to last longer than you think, we must also be mentally strong. Like Buddha-under-the-Bodhi-tree, Jesus-in-the-desert kind of strong. Watches and time play an important role in this process. My mind, just like every other, longs for structure. It wants to be challenged and used. It must feel important and useful. For me, the best way is to divide my day into different units of time that are dedicated to different purposes.

Here's how it works.

Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway have breakfast together in 1968's film, The Thomas Crown Affair.

7 AM: Get up! It doesn't matter when you went to bed or how many Negronis your night before. All that matters is that you are watching CNN coverage about health care workers returning home. It is important to get up and face the day.

7-8: Intake the news from various channels. In truth,Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Replica I would rather not spend more than an hour on this because the macabre world of the BBC and CNN is like a black hole. It's easy for me to get sucked into the screen and remain there in a semi-catatonic state while mumbling "the terror" like Brando in Apocalypse Now.

8-9:30 AM: Workout. I rarely spend more than one and a quarter hours at the gym. Because I am at home and sat on my stomach a lot, it makes sense to me to go. I am fortunate enough to have a spinning bike in my living area.Bell & Ross Replica Watches I ride that for between 40-60 minutes. Here's the secret to cardio. The amount of pain experienced during a cardio session will directly correlate to how good you feel afterwards. This means that you will need to headbutt your anaerobic threshold squarely in the face several times if you want that blissful dopamine high that gets you through the day. Two espressos with Irish dairy butter are a good idea before and after running. Running (since we are allowed to run outdoors once per day), I prefer to run four kilometers at a steady pace and then finish the race with a series 1 minute sprints followed by a 30 second recovery.
