We tend to think of medicine as being all about pills and potions recommended to us by another person—a doctor. But science is starting to reveal that for many conditions another ingredient could be critical to the success of these drugs, or perhaps even replace them. That ingredient is nothing more than your own mind.
Here are six ways to raid your built-in medicine cabinet.
Futurist Thomas Frey: A few nights ago, I arrived at a very nice Radisson Blu Hotel in Minneapolis for my talk on the “hotel of the future.” My client was the good people on the Board of Carlson & Rezidor Hotels, the group responsible for a large...

A new charitable organization, Clothes for the Cause takes your used items (and in many cases even your very used items) and repurposes them into rags, fiber for home and shelter insulation, and more. In this way, all of our old garments do a great deal of good for people who need raw materials to make everyday items to keep warm and clean.
Each year in the US, billions upon billions of clothes are needlessly and thoughtlessly tossed like any other garbage into landfills and dumps. This is not only tragic because they aren’t being used for the hundreds of thousands of adults, children, and infants they could clothes, but also because of the space they take up in garbage heaps, which are growing exponentially and harming our environment. Upcycling clothes in this manner is much like recycling aluminum cans or plastic—it’s the right thing to do, helps our environment, and helps us reuse materials to keep the costs of certain items lower.
And it isn’t just t-shirts and sweatpants that Clothes for the Cause will take off your hands—your old work ensembles, button-downs—even children’s plush toys, terrycloth rags and towels, handbags, and even draperies! The level of versatility means you as a consumer with clothes and other textile items in your home have the chance to give back in a way you had probably never heard of or considered while freeing up space in your home.
