Green Living – Eco Home Design and Environmental Friendly Habits

Why green living?

I have 8 grandchildren and I would like them to live in the future in a world as good or better than the world we know today. But that will only be possible if we take more care of our use of natural resources and the environment. I think I need to take responsibility for what I can, linked to my daily life, and I would recommend you to do the same if you care for your grandchildren.

Is it difficult to live more green?

Many have the feeling that to live more green is very bothersome, expensive and difficult. But take these advices and see if they fit your temper and possibilities. As with a lot of things in life it helps to think and plan a little ahead of what you want to do. For me the following approach toward a more green daily life has been rewarding.

Generate ideas of more green living

Use five minutes to list a lot of things you expect would reduce your and your family’s impact on the environment. Just dot the ideas down as they come into your mind. If feasible do it as a family event around the table and engage everyone in this green brainstorm. Think of three types of more green living as follows and put your green ideas into the three categories:

1. Green ideas that will save you money

2. Green ideas that will be neutral on your economy

3. Green ideas that will cost you money

1. Green ideas that will save you money

The ideas for greener living that will save you money should be implemented immediately. It is stupid to waste money and at the same time pollute more or use more resources than needed. Many companies here in Denmark have made use of this to reduce their environmental impact and to improve their competitiveness and profit from that green initiative at the same time. Many private households would benefit from it too.

Examples of green ideas that will save you money more or less from the moment you implement them are:

– Avoid running toilets and dripping taps (remember the garden, too).

– Have your lamps and electricity running more than needed, e.g. in rooms without any persons, and the standby lamps of electrical equipment.

– Drive your care more softly and you reduce the consumption of gasoline and keep your tires longer.

2. Green ideas that will be neutral on your economy

If you think of your grandchildren as I recommend the green ideas that will be neutral to your economy should also be taken into consideration. It is ideas for greener living that just need a little attention from you in your daily life.

Such more green habits could be

– When you are shopping avoid the extra bags and wrapping from the shop if you don’t need it.

– Make your own compost in your garden and keep as much of the nutrition’s in your garden instead of ‘exporting’ garden waste and have to buy fertilizers etc.

– Reduce your consumption of red meat and prepare food with more fish, chicken and turkey and supplement more with veggies. – That will also be healthier.

3. Green ideas that will cost you money

Ideas for greener living that cost you money might also be worthwhile considering, so please read on. Here I will emphasise the environmental effect when you buy new kinds of equipment, like a new freezer, a new car, a new computer, a new washing machine etc. The whole trend of eco home design will often belong to this category.

Take your time to investigate the different qualities related to the environmental impact of the different brands and models of machines and equipment. Search for independent rating of the environmental impacts. In Europe we have a marking with A to E for the energy consumption and the most environmental friendly washing machines etc. will have an A label. Most consumers at least in Denmark will be very much aware of that label and go for it if it isn’t too expensive.

The beauty of such an expense is that in most cases it will pay off in the long run to pay the extra for an environmental friendly model because you will save electricity or other tings in the long run. In many cases the premium environmental friendly machines will also be of the best quality and that will help you too. So you see it isn’t that difficult to get started with some new greener habits and you can still look your grandchildren in the eyes because you are caring for their future.

Contact Lenses – A Confidence Builder For Valentines Day

Confidence is a key component to success in life – from landing a job, to garnering respect and admiration from peers, to falling in love. A person who exudes confidence is generally well regarded – it is much easier to like a person who likes him or herself.

A basic aspect of liking oneself is feeling content with one’s appearance and having a basic acceptance of who we are. For people with vision problems, making the switch from eyeglasses to contact lenses can make a world of difference in their confidence level and self-image.

With Valentines Day just around the corner, now is the time to make the switch to contact lenses, boost your confidence level and maybe work up the courage to ask out the person you most admire.

It is said that the eyes are the gateway into the soul. Gazing into the eyes of a loved one can be quite telling. In the eyes of a significant other, you might see love and compassion; in the eyes of your child you might see traces of yourself and a youthful exuberance. The ability to read one’s emotion in their eyes is truly meaningful and inspiring.

A captivating gaze with a contact lens wearer is simple to achieve. Contacts are worn directly on the cornea, making them nearly invisible. With eyeglasses on the other hand, distracting glares, reflections or fogging of the lenses in varying temperatures make an intimate gaze more challenging, though not impossible.

The aesthetic aspects of contact lenses are the most basic benefits, but there are other important benefits as well. Contact lenses are an effective means of vision correction that provide a great peripheral field of vision, which allows the wearer to be significantly more active than when wearing eyeglasses. Contact lenses offer a natural-looking alternative to wearers – most people aren’t even aware that lenses are being worn – which helps the wearer to feel confident about their appearance.

Although the social benefits of contact lenses are numerous, it is important to remember that a contact lens is a medical device, and should be treated as such. Lenses must be fitted by an eye care professional and it is crucial to eye health that wearers follow their prescribed cleaning and replacement schedule.

Modern contact lenses offer visual solutions for different eye problems. For those who are intrigued by an edgier appearance, or who are seeking something different, colored contact lenses are an option. These lenses are available for people who don’t require vision correction, but must still be fitted by an eye care practitioner.

Contact your eye care practitioner to schedule an exam to be fit for contact lenses today, and visit Contact Lens King [http://www.contactlensking.com/index.aspx] for more information on contact lenses and eye health.

Proper Glucose Control is Key in Prevention of Vision Problems For Diabetics

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. It is estimated that more than 14 million Americans have some form of diabetes. Public health officials expect that by 2050, there will be more than 48 million diagnosed cases in the United States.

Diabetes is caused when the pancreas either does not produce enough insulin or is unable to process insulin correctly. The disease poses numerous complications for the eyes, including fluctuations with eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions; cataracts at a younger age; increased risk of developing glaucoma; and diabetic retinopathy, which is the most serious risk.

The retina is the wall-like structure that lines the back of the eye; it is made up of light-sensitive tissue and a network of blood vessels. In cases of diabetes, the blood vessels of the retina can begin to leak fluid, blood, or cholesterol deposits on the retina. It is also possible that abnormal blood vessels will form and can cause serious bleeding and scarring of the retina.

Diabetic retinopathy frequently has no accompanying symptoms until it is advanced, at which point it is more difficult to treat.

The effects of diabetic retinopathy vary by case, but some common symptoms include blurred vision and a sudden, temporary loss of sight. In late stages of the disease, abnormal vessel growth can lead to retinal detachment and glaucoma.

The longer a person lives with diabetes, the greater their risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. After five years with diabetes, a person’s risk of development is around 20 percent; after 15 years, the risk increases to about 80 percent. Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among people aged 20 to 64 in the U.S.

Studies have shown that those who have good control over their diabetes and carefully monitor their glucose levels have a decreased risk of developing sight-threatening complications. In addition, it is important to treat high blood pressure. Also, those who smoke are more likely to have high blood pressure and higher blood sugar levels, which makes diabetes more difficult to control. Not smoking and maintaining good glucose and blood pressure levels can reduce one’s risk of diabetes-related vision problems.

Diabetic retinopathy is generally treated with laser beams that both seal the leaky blood vessels and prevent more from developing. Laser treatment is often successful at maintaining vision if the retinopathy is found early, but it is not capable of restoring vision that is already lost.

Although diabetic retinopathy is the most serious vision impairment, blurred vision and cataracts can also affect diabetics. Blurred vision can be an early symptom of diabetes and can also occur when the disease is not being well controlled. In the case of cataracts, the lens of the eye becomes cloudy causing vision to be blurred or dimmed. It generally afflicts people as they age, but can affect younger individuals who have diabetes. Treatment involves removal of the clouded lens and replacement with a specialized inert plastic lens called an intraocular lens.

Most sight loss from diabetes is preventable. It is crucial for diabetics to have their eyes checked annually, even if they are not experiencing any vision problems.

Tap Into Your Power and Add EFT to Your Healing Repertoire

I have had the privilege to experience amazing results through the use of an energy healing modality that is so simple my children learned to use it at ages 6 and 8! Now is your opportunity to tap into your power!

Gary Craig is the founder of EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques. A tremendous amount of information is available at his website.

In April of 2006 I discovered EFT in response to my daughter's escalating health condition. Chelsea * had been on decongestants, antihistamines and steroid based medicines from age 1 to her then age, 6. She was diagnosed as a "chronic mucus producer." Chelsea would produce so much mucus while lying down to sleep that she would cough until she would vomit. This condition was persistent over the years.

Prescription medicines would provide relief at times. However, at night, while lying down she sounded as if she was drowning in her own mucus.

We reached a period when Chelsea had not slept for 3 nights. Our six year old had dark circles under her eyes and was completely worn out. In April 2006, the doctor put Chelsea on 45 mg. of prednisone. We gave her the medicine to relieve the struggle she was experiencing. Concurrently, I reached my limit with mainstream medicine for Chelsea's condition.

On the evening of her first dose of prednisone, I "Googled" "healing night time cough." To my great surprise, the response was, "EFT practitioner heals 6 year old son of night time cough."

I rushed to my bookshelf and found the bound copy of Gary's workbook I had downloaded two years earlier. I began to read and absorb the material. I then signed up for my first of several EFT Training Classes. By the time Chelsea completed the prescribed dosage of prednisone, I had begun to use the tapping techniques I had learned. We also eliminated dairy products from our diets.

EFT entails using your own fingertips to tap on 10 specific meridian (energy pathways) points on the body. While tapping, you remain focused on the condition that is ailing you.

I began to tap on Chelsea and she immediately went off all of her other medicines for mucus – for good! She is now 9 years old and has not had any prescription medicine.
