Health Hats the Podcast – Fearless Medical Coach. Symptom Goals
IntroWelcome to Health Hats, the Podcast. I am Danny van Leeuwen, a two-legged, cisgender, old, white man of privilege, who knows a little about a lot of healthcare and a lot about very little. We will listen and learn about what it takes to adjust to life's realities in the awesome circus of healthcare. Let's make some sense of all this.
Shiri ben Arzi: Fearless Medical Coach, Storyteller. Getting to YesSo, for me, this is about leaving the world in a better place, when I'm gone, than when I came, so that's the goal I chose. Doing it mostly with medical coaching, but I also do that, personally. After that experience, I became, in a way, fearless. I'm not afraid of dying. I'm not afraid of pain. God knows I'm used to pain. I know how to deal with it. I hate it. If there's one thing that I am, one thing that might frighten me is living an unfulfilled life and something happening to my daughter. That scares me. Fear did come back after I became a mother, but the meaning is that I seek to promote goodness in everything that I do. And it was also learning to be good to myself. We talked about self-love. Be good to me and love myself and loving myself is not at others' expense because self-love is not selfishness.
When it comes to my health decisions, then I know that there are certain things I've learned how I like things done, and I permit myself to be the expert on my health. I'm not a doctor. This is why I have a fantastic doctor. I love him to bits. He's been such an amazing ally for me for over ten years. I have other people to assist me, but ultimately, I take full responsibility, yes, full ownership for the things that I know, for the things that I don't know, for asking for help. I know that taking care of myself is another way of being aligned with my goal to promote goodness to the world in a slightly better place. I need to take care of myself.

Danny Health Hats: Destination: Best Health. Life Goals. Symptom GoalsI have symptom goals as well. Symptoms like pain. As far as pain goes, I’d prefer to have no pain, but that isn’t realistic for me. I have a love hate relationship with opioids just like I have with steroids. They’re magic for a minute, and then absolutely awful. I get depressed, unpleasant to live with, and constipated. So, my goal is to prevent or reduce my pain to the point that the pain doesn’t consume me. Consume me, means that I can’t do anything. Mostly, I try to keep pain below a threshold where I can live life – activity, music, mood, not falling – my personal goals. Staying below that threshold means have regular habits that work for me – manage my weight, daily exercise routine, chiropractic, meaningful work, socialization (I’m an extrovert), liberal use of Tylenol and Ibuprofen, heat, cold, and vibration.

Open Arted - When you make music, first do it for your own satisfaction
From Monika Mašanauskaitė
A PODCAST EXPLORING WHY MAKING ART CAN BE MORE PRACTICAL THAN WE THINK
Creatives from all around the world share their artistic (and not only) journeys and explore the impact it has on their everyday lives.
Avo Kouyoumdjian is currently my piano professor at the MDW - University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna where I study Chamber music masters. Born in Beirut, Lebanon to a family of Armenian descent Avo began his studies when he was 12 years old at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Since then he founded International Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Competition and in 2002 he became the cofounder/ director of the Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Institute. If I know a musician/teacher whose eyes light up as he hears Beethoven, Ravel or any other composer - Avo is one of them. There is no way you can leave his teaching room without being inspired. Gladly, you can also hear this fire in his voice, almost like experiencing his piano lesson. So grab your headphones for this conversation and undiscovered music by A. Babadjanian performed by Avo and his friends.
