  • I knew that as an ex-smoker, had increased risk of developing certain diseases and cancer

    The story of Alex

    An elderly man with white cap smiling

    I knew that as an ex-smoker, had increased risk of developing certain diseases and cancer. But when a friend asked me if I had done the test for abdominal aortic aneurysm , I said "what´s that?".

    My friend was 67 when his doctor recommended a test to see if he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The test showed a small aneurysm and had surgery a few days later. Now, my friend is recovering and takes very seriously its role to warn their friends about the danger of this disease.

    As I used to smoke, and as I exercise regularly and I have high cholesterol and blood pressure, have higher risk of developing this disease. So my friend was worried about me and asked me to take the test. I was lucky, because the evidence indicated that he had an aneurysm. However, my doctor recommended several things you can do to reduce my risk of developing this disease. The eating healthy foods and being more active help me to reduce my risk of developing heart disease. Exercise also helps to strengthen my muscles and my heart.

    By making some small changes in your home and garden, you can reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and save money. Explore our list of the 10 simple steps you can take to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.

    1. Replace 5 lights at home

    Replace the five most frequently used lights or the bulbs in these, with products certified under the seal of ENERGY STAR ® and you help the environment by saving more than $ 70 per year in electricity bills. ENERGY STAR lighting provides bright, warm light that generates 75% less heat; uses up to 75% less energy than traditional lighting; and lasts 10 to 50 times longer.

    2. Look for products certified under the ENERGY STAR

    When buying new products for your home, look for the ENERGY STAR EPA that will help you make a decision more energy efficient. You can find the Energy Star label on more than 60 kinds of products, including appliances, lighting equipment, heating and air conditioning, electronics and office equipment. Throughout life all on your home certified under the ENERGY STAR label may reduce emissions of greenhouse gases approximately 130.000 pounds and save $ 11,000 in electricity bills.

    3. Heat and cool your home smartly

    Expenses for the use of heating and cooling account for almost half of its electricity-bill about $ 1,000 a year! There are many things you can do to reduce these costs. Simple steps such as changing air filters regularly, properly using a programmable thermostat and making sure to give annually due maintain your heating and air conditioning by a licensed contractor can save energy and increase comfort at home while helping to protect environment. Depending on the area you live in, you can reduce your annual energy bill by more than $ 200 to replace your heating and air conditioning old certificate under the seal of ENERGY STAR equipment.

    4. Selle home and add insulation with ENERGY STAR

    Reduce leaks and drafts using caulk, weatherstripping and insulation to seal any cracks or hollow along windows and doors in your home as well as in the attic to block heat and cold. An owner with appropriate knowledge or skilled contractor can save you up to 20% on the cost of heating and air conditioning. Through these actions you can greatly improve the comfort in your home following proper sealing and insulation measures.

    5. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

    The reduce, reuse, and recycling in your home helps conserve energy and reduce pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases from extraction, manufacturing and disposal. If there is a recycling program in your community, recycle your newspapers, soda bottles, paper and other products. Also the composting of food waste and yard cleanup reduces the amount of waste you send to landfill and reduces emissions of greenhouse gases. Visit the Individual Waste Reduction Model EPA (iWARM for its acronym in English) to learn about the energy benefits of recycling common waste on landfill disposal.

    6. Use water efficiently

    It requires a lot of energy to pump, treat, and heat water, thus water conservation reduces emissions of greenhouse gases. Saving water at home is easy. Three percent of the nation´s energy is used to pump and treat water, thus conserving water also conserves energy by reducing pollution of greenhouse gases. Reduce as much as possible the amount of waste generated and the water you drink. Take simple steps to conserve water such as not leaving the tap when shaving or brushing your teeth and save money while conserving water using products labeled WaterSense . Did you know a leaky toilet can waste 200 gallons of water per day? Repair all leaks and dripping faucets and toilets immediately. When you run the dishwasher to capacity will save 100 pounds of carbon dioxide and up to $ 40 per year.Pour water to the lawn and garden wisely. Only water them when necessary and do it in the coolest part of the day.Typically, early morning is the best time. See the Web site of the EPA WaterSense for more tips on how to conserve water.

    7. Practice organic gardening

    The composting of food waste and grass clippings reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and emissions of greenhouse gases. The program GreenScapes EPA has several tips and useful publications (PDF)  (16 pp, 1.8MB, About PDF )on how to improve your lawn or garden while also helping the environment.

    The city and the 7 steps to positive thinking

    Most of us keep a constant mental conversation .  We talk with ourselves every day, and unfortunately, many times these "internal" discussions are negative,  often marked by guilt about the past or worry about the future.  Such negativity can destroy any sign of hope that we have about the realization of our dreams.

    Our actions are based on our thoughts.  If we change the way we think, we can begin to change the actions we take.  Humans are always in pursuit of personal growth  financial, emotional, physical or spiritual. Practicing positive internal conversations can help us going to take actions that lead to great results.

    Then I leave seven steps to achieving a positive self-talk.  Following these steps you will be able to start eliminating your negative conversations and replace them with thoughts that will motivate you to improve.

    1   Eliminate negative self-talk

    The first step is realizing.  Would difficult to make a change without know intimately the thoughts that are in our head. 

    No doubt that if you have a long history of negative internal conversations, will be a challenge.  Their conversation becomes negative over the years for various reasons.  For example, if a child constantly told you that you were "dumb", you could incorporate as a truth. Then  you will discover your inner self there is a little voice that often repeats phrases like "I´m too slow", or "it costs me learn something."  If you constantly pass on negative stories, your actions will reflect their low self-esteem.  Going to be difficult for you to get somewhere if you´re always pulling back.

    Ordinary conversation includes the negative "can not."  When you say to yourself  "I can´t" or "it´s very difficult," you are creating resistance.  A mental block  are prevented you from doing things that  could succeed.

    Whenever you find yourself saying "I can´t ...", stop the game and challenge yourself with a "why?".  Studies show that most geniuses become outstanding people after years of commitment and more commitment.  So if you want to be successful need to start saying "I can" more often.

    A good method I have found useful is to say "stopping, stopping" whenever I notice myself saying something negative about myself, both mentally and verbally.  This method works if you have a sincere interest in positive thinking.

    2    Positive Affirmations

    Affirmations are positive expressions of a desired outcome or goal.  Expressions are generally short, believable and focused.  By repeating them over time, we opened new paths in our subconscious, creating the possibility of a new order of thoughts.

    An important step in repeating affirmations is to read them aloud and with feeling.  But read does not help unless you really feel what you say.

    Surely you have any questions about this technique at the beginning.  Nevertheless, if you follow these simple instructions to his disbelief will soon be replaced by faith in yourself.

    3      Create positive screenplays

    One thing you can see is that it´s easy for your mind to generate negative thoughts, based on other negative thoughts.  This cycle never ends, but increases, creating a strong limitation.

    From now on, let´s do this exercise.  Invent a positive, uplifting story that flows like a movie script.  Visualize the situation. Build  the story with a positive ending;  how bigger the storyline  better.  Better yet if you can develop a story that tells how all your goals are reached.  When you do begin to internalize your goals and dreams as if they were something you already did.

    4      Replace negative influences with positive

    It is important to identify external negative factors in your life that are limiting your thoughts.  For example, your mood can poison with friends and people who are negative.  If you are not careful enough, you will begin to adopt their  negative thoughts.  So be alert to negative influences.  Whether they come from friends, limit your exposure to these thoughts as much as you can. Additionally, avoid discussing your plans with people who did not  encourage and help you in your dreams and goals.

    Instead, look to surround yourself with the thoughts and actions of people that motivate you. Before long you will see the transformation of a pessimistic ball in a good and pleasant aura .  This positive energy that surrounds you will begin to improve their internal conversations too.

    5    Posts in present time

    What can help you is to focus about the steps you can take now.  If you find yourself locked, think: "what can I do now?."  Change your self-talk, letting anxiety about the future and start to act in this time.  You can not control what happens in the future, but if you take the necessary steps now, it allows you to have a better tomorrow. Focus   your thoughts on today and now.

    6    Controlling fears

    Fear is often what prevents you from achieving the goals.  Are you afraid to take risks for fear of losing the security that enjoys now.  You try to convince yourself that you are happy in their current state when, in reality, is not .  Your inner self may seem positive in trying to lie to himself.  Yet somehow, you know you´re cheating.

    Ask yourself what are your fears. What ´s the worst that can happen? Follow  a step-by-step approach - to discuss their fears and see if there is any way to see things more positively.  When you confront your fears, often going to realize that the worst case scenario is not as bad as thought.  On indeed, the benefits of change tend to justify the risk.

    7    Enjoy the good times

    It´s much easier to have a positive attitude if you focus on the good moments of your life instead of the bad.  Although it is inevitable to have  problems and challenges, remember that life consists of ups and downs, and that the good times are forged through the bad times.

    So choose to fill your mind with positive thoughts and images.  Make it a conscious habit.  To start, if you can be grateful for what you have now, your internal conversation will begin to change and align yourself with that sense of joy.  A state of gratitude helps a lot to your mind.
