Blue Mind: Your Brain on Water

Blue Mind BookA new York Times best seller, the book Blue Mind is a fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water…you’ll read it once and then come back to it time and again…” ~Washington Post

Marine Biologist and Author, Wallace J. Nichols PhD., chronicles the surprising science that shows how being near, in, or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected and better at what you do.

It’s incredible to think that we can alter our brain’s positive neural pathways by increasing our exposure to happy experiences in, near or on water, but apparently it’s true. While the mind runs the show, the body isn’t left out of the discussion. Most of us could close our eyes right now and recall the sights and associated sounds of our favorite shoreline.

Nichols explores the sensory appeal of water, showing us how the sight, sound, feel, and even smell and taste of water affect us on an incredibly deep and raw level.

After 50 years of lakefront living myself, it’s certainly something I’ve always believed in…but it’s good to know there’s science behind it!

The book is available on Amazon here: Blue Mind.
