Roofing can be environmentally friendly and still protect your home. Why not go green with your rooftop in addition to other parts of a building?s structure. By choosing materials and techniques that leave less of a carbon footprint, you could be creating a strong and long lasting structure, saving on utility bills, investing in your property value and saving the planet. What more could you ask for from a roof? Here are some tips:

-Recycled material: There are various shingles that have been produced from recycled throwaways. Materials used include plastic, wood fiber

, rubber, and trash items from consumers, factories plus junk that would have ended up in the dump. These shingles are attractive and last a long time. Think a twenty or thirty year roof is long lasting? Some of these will be around for fifty years or even longer. Depending on the material, they may be so fireproof that your insurance premiums will be lowered, which means your house probably won?t burn down either.

-Reclaimed lumber shakes: Timber shakes are classic and if made from freshly chopped trees

, aren?t so great for the environment. Reclaimed lumber has changed all this, however. Nowadays, timber that has been salvaged from old buildings, barns, pickle vats

, fences and warehouses is being recycled and converted into roofing, flooring and more.

-Roofs that are truly green ? as in gardens: Yes, many rooftops are living gardens that are beautiful, living and eco-sound. With the proper slope, sprinklers and drainage systems

, commercial and residential structures are becoming gardens. An especially easy way to do this is something called Green Paks which is basically a ready-made fold-out pre-planted garden of grasses, flowers or what-have-you.

-Light Pipes: A new-fangled form of skylight or solar tube that is being placed on rooftops is called a light pipe. These are devices placed on the roof to harvest sunlight for heat and light to be distributed throughout the structure via pipes.

-Residential Wind Turbines: Harvesting wind energy is another method of gaining energy via your roof. These wind turbines are especially appropriate in areas with strong winds which can then be converted to power. Some individuals aren?t convinced that one of these could generate enough power for a household but it could certainly be useful in conjunction with other methods.

-White gravel on flat roofs: Today, there is an updated method that was originally used back in the olden days. That is, placing white gravel on rooftops to reflect solar heat and keep the building below it cooler. Today?s cool roofs combine white gravel with white glue for a highly reflective product. While this is great in hot climates, it isn?t a perfect solution for cold climates trying to absorb heat.

Environmentally friendly roofing can be a great idea. By using recycled and reclaimed products

, a home builder?s carbon footprint would be greatly reduced. By adding innovative devices and ideas to your home such as a garden up top, light pipes, white gravel and white glue or harnessing the wind with turbines, you could be doing the green thing in a smart and attractive way.

In days gone by it was common to keep a diary or personal journal. Today few people do it and fewer recognize the astonishing power of keeping a daily journal. If you can read and write, you have access to the most amazing source of personal power and absolute magic!


When I first suggest journaling to clients

, they claim they couldn't possibly find the time. I contend that they simply haven't realized the value of journaling and don't yet see it as a priority. As the saying goes, ?It takes 21 days to turn a behavior into a habit.? So, how about journaling for 15 minutes a day over the next 21 days? Try it, and watch it dramatically alter your life! After 21 days, most of my clients say they couldn't imagine being without it. Many journal for a half-hour or more. The following are my top three reasons to keep a journal:


1. A journal will clarify your goals.


As you write a few thoughts each day

, your ideas about what's important, what is worthy of your energy and your time will become much more defined. You'll automatically discover what you really want in life. Then, your inner compass can point the way to your best path.


2. A journal helps eliminate impulsiveness.


Some ideas sound really great in our imagination, but when written on paper they take on a new meaning. It's easy to blurt out "I hate my boss!", but writing about what it means to quit your job

, change careers and start over will quickly result in one of two things: The temptation will fade away, or you'll start formulating actual plans to make the necessary changes. Either way, you win!


3. A journal affirms the events of your life.


Writing about your life saturates it with meaning and power. Journaling about your child's first steps or first tooth, the passing of a loved one or friend, the appearance of a particular opportunity or choice adds substance to these things and provides an historical context to your life experience.


Journaling has been referred to as a form of meditation. It has been known to spark romance

, solve world problems and change the thinking of nations. It has the power to quiet the mind and focus your thoughts. It can heal anxiety, change your breathing and bring a smile to your face. At the very least, journaling will give you a few minutes to catch your breath before stepping into another day.


A Closing Thoug.
