“I WISH YOU WATER”
DR WALLACE J NICHOLS
Water is the essence of life: The ocean, healthy rivers, lakes, and wetlands are good for our minds and bodies.Wallace J. Nichols, PhD
Research shows that nature is therapeutic, promotes general health and well-being, and blue space in both urban and rural settings further enhances and broadens cognitive, emotional, psychological, social, physical, and spiritual benefits.
Chronic stress and anxiety cause or intensify a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. Being on, in, and near water can be among the most cost-effective ways of reducing stress and anxiety.Wallace J. Nichols, PhD
TEDx Talks – Dr Wallace J.Nichols
“Blue Mind” is a fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water. Nichols examines seas and oceans, lakes and rivers, even swimming pools and the contents of our bathtubs in a study that is both highly readable and rooted in real research. Nichols draws on science and art, hard data and anecdote, and plenty of experience, to explain our blue mind in detail. ~ AmazonWashington Post Book Review
