MEGA: WHAT’S A TYPICAL DAY LIKE FOR YOU IN THIS NEW NORMAL?

DR. HAYDEN KHO: The pandemic has changed what a typical day looks like for me. It used to be that I spend a lot of time in the office or clinic during weekdays, but that has obviously changed. In many ways, working from home has been good for me. I wake up early every morning to have some quiet time reading my Bible then spend 20 to 30 minutes praying. By 8 AM, my wife and daughter, Vicki and Scarlet, would be ready for breakfast so I join them. After breakfast, three to four times a week, I work out and then do my daily morning grooming regimen. Four mornings in a week, I am the designated “Teacher Daddy” to Scarlet Snow, then most afternoons I work until evening. To relieve stress, I either play with Scarlet or just lie down in bed with Vicki. Finally, before I sleep, I read and study until I fall asleep. It sounds very regimented, but to be honest, I like to keep my schedule very flexible. What’s important to me is that the major things remain major—that is, my faith life and family life are not sacrificed for work and hobbies.

WHO AND WHAT DO YOU FIND BEAUTIFUL AND WHY?

HK: To me, what is beautiful is anything that rouses the sensations to experience true inspiration. When we look at anything we perceive as beautiful, we do so because it reminds us of the perfection we yearn for. Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy—we perceive them as beautiful because they give us a glimpse of what we see rarely of in this side of heaven. Beauty ultimately reminds us of God, and that’s why we look for it everywhere. Our hearts are programmed for it.
