  2. #41 Rachel Hoffman on how to Unf*ck your Habitat – Next Level Guy

    The Basics

     

    Episode: #41 Rachel Hoffman on how to Unf*ck your Habitat

    Who: Today’s guest is Rachel Hoffman, founder of ‘Unf*ck your Habitat’ and author of the awesome book of the same name.

    I was trying to think how best to sum up Rachel’s great work when I came across her about page and I think it sums it up perfectly:

    “Unfck Your Habitat: You’re Better than Your Mess is the housekeeping and organizational system developed for those of us who’d describe our current living situation as a “fcking mess” that we’re desperate to fix … it is for anyone who has been left behind by traditional aspirational systems: The ones that ignore single people with full-time jobs; people without kids but living with roommates; and people with mental illnesses or physical limitations, among many others. Most organizational books are aimed at traditional homemakers, DIYers, and people who seem to have unimaginable amounts of free time. They assume we all iron our sheets, have linen napkins to match our table runners, and can keep plants alive for longer than a week. Basically, they ignore most of us living here in the real world.

    Interspersed with lists and challenges, this practical, no-nonsense advice relies on a 20/10 system (20 minutes of cleaning followed by a 10-minute break; no marathon cleaning allowed) to help you develop lifelong habits. It motivates you to embrace a new lifestyle in manageable sections so you can actually start applying the tactics as you progress. This philosophy is decidedly more realistic than aspirational, but the goal is the same: not everyone will have a showcase of a home, but whatever your habitat, you deserve one that brings you happiness, not stress.”

    What we cover

    Who she is and why she is well known

    What was the turning point that got her into this area

    Where do most men go wrong with their habitats and cleaning

    Has the gender viewpoints on cleaning and house-work changed over the years?

    Has social media and reality TV shows changed the way we live and view our habitats?

    The philosophy of unfucking your habitat – how should we start sorting out our habitats?

    The 20/10 principle and how it can change your life

    Little changes you can make right now to get the biggest return

    What is ‘Sink Zero’ and why it is so awesome

    How cleaning can be changed for those with limitations on what they can do

    What is an ‘invisible corner’ and why should you worry about them

    How should teach kids to be more involved with the cleaning and organising our habitats

    What should be in our cleaning toolkit?

    How do we keep on top of cleaning during stress times and holidays?

    Where did the inspiration for the book come from and why has it been so successful?

    How some people struggle to get past the title of the site and the motivation for it

    How do we know if we are getting better at cleaning and organising our habitats?

    Why you need a copy of this book right now

    How can you keep in touch with her

    And so much more

    Some things to reflect on

    She is not a naturally clean and organised person but taught herself how not to be a slob anymore and you can too

    Most systems assume you have unlimited time, money or knowledge to do these things but weren’t designed for real life, she gives you the starting point and where to go from there

    “You created the mess, so you should be responsible for cleaning it” – cleaning is not a gender-specific role

    Social media are “carefully constructed views” of someone’s house and you think it is real life but no one lives like that in real life

    Remember “In reality, people have messy homes and messy lives” – social media does not give a true reflection of real life

    “Progress is good … it doesn’t need to be perfect right away”

    People should “build small habits over time”

    The reality of cleaning is that it is a cycle, it never ends, little and often works best

    “Take wherever you are and start there, you don’t need to change your life … to get a clean home”

    Kids will treat organising and cleaning the same way you do, your behaviours are the model that your children will adopt

    Let go your “expectation of perfection”

    “You don’t need a lot of stuff to do this”, don’t accumulate more things trying to clean

    “Start with what smells bad”

    People underestimate the link between your habitat and your mood – if you feel good about where you live, you will feel good

  3. Ärzteschaft, Staatssicherheit und Ethik. DDR-Mediziner als Inoffizielle Mitarbeiter

    Aus ihrem gesellschaftlichen Legitimierungszwang heraus maß die SED dem Gesundheitswesen der DDR und damit der Tätigkeit von Ärzten einen überaus großen politischen Stellenwert bei. Mit der Entwicklung eines verstaatlichten Gesundheitswesens ging deshalb auch der Versuch der Parteiführung einher, die Ärzte ihrem Herrschaftsanspruch weitgehend unterzuordnen. Dennoch stand ein großer Teil dieser bildungsbürgerlich geprägten Berufsgruppe mit tradiertem Standesbewusstsein den Anforderungen der SED an eine „sozialistische Ärzteschaft“ überaus kritisch oder sogar ablehnend gegenüber.

    Die Mehrheit der Ärzte in der DDR gehörte weder der SED an, noch ließ sie sich auf Spitzeltätigkeiten für die Staatssicherheit ein. Aber der Anteil an Inoffiziellen Mitarbeitern (IM) des Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit (MfS) unter Ärzten war eindeutig höher als in der Gesamtbevölkerung. Diese Tatsache weist allerdings nicht auf eine besondere Anfälligkeit der Ärzte für denunziatorisches Verhalten hin, sondern bestätigt einmal mehr, dass die Partei- und Staatsführung diese Berufsgruppe besonders penibel observieren ließ.

    Im Mittelpunkt des Vortrages stehen die spezifischen Merkmale der konspirativen Zusammenarbeit von Ärzten mit dem Staatssicherheitsdienst. Dabei geht es im Einzelnen um die mannigfaltigen Motive für die Kooperationswilligkeit, um Schwerpunkt- und Aufgabenbereiche, Dauer und Intensität der Spitzeltätigkeit, Quantität und Qualität der abgefassten Berichte sowie um die Frage, wer, wie oft und aus welchem Grund die ärztliche Schweigepflicht gebrochen hat. Diese differenzierte Betrachtung soll letztendlich zu einer sachlichen Auseinandersetzung mit Denunziationen, ihren Ursachen und Folgen beitragen.

  4. Ethik und Medizin in der DDR: Zur Einführung

    Ungeachtet von unterschiedlichen historischen Wertungen der DDR bietet das Thema „Ethik und Medizin“ wichtige und differenzierende Einblicke in die Lebenswirklichkeit der Menschen. Die Qualität eines Staatssystems spiegelt sich meist am besten im Umgang mit den schwächsten Gliedern: Kranken, Behinderten, psychiatrischen Patienten, Inhaftierten, Sterbenden.

    Für das Themenfeld „Ethik und Medizin in der DDR“ stellt sich auch gut 20 Jahre nach der Wiedervereinigung eine Reihe von Fragen: In welcher Weise haben Marxismus-Leninismus und Sozialismus das Gesundheitswesen der DDR ethisch geprägt? Was sind die besonderen Spannungen für moralische Fragen des Handelns am Patienten? Wie haben sich Ärzte bei Konflikten zwischen hippokratischen Werten und staatlichen Vorgaben verhalten? Gab es eine stärkere Orientierung an humanistischen Traditionen oder sozialistischer Planerfüllung? Wie sind die Entwicklung und Aufarbeitung seit der Wende einzuschätzen?

    Der einführende Vortrag stellt Grundlagen der Medizinethik und ausgewählte Probleme des ärztlichen Handelns in der DDR strukturell vor. Am Beispiel von Opfern und Schreibtisch-Tätern – insbesondere Inoffiziellen Mitarbeitern des Ministeriums für Staatssicherheit – werden ethische Fragen des DDR-Gesundheitswesens exemplarisch problematisiert.
