Hello Water Friend,

Amidst the coronavirus challenges this year, I hope you have been able to enjoy being in or near bodies of water, such as the ocean, lakes, or swimming pools.

This summer I was able to spend a week near the beach in San Diego, and the ocean air and water was refreshing, to say the least!

Being in, on or near a body of water can help bridge the gap between an overactive (stressful) state of mind to what scientists are now calling the “blue mind” state.

Blue mind is defined as a “mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peacefulness, unity, and a sense of general satisfaction with life in the moment.”

Our new article is about “Water and Solitude” and how the calming effect of water can help create a more peaceful state of mind.

With everything going on in the world, I think you will agree that a sense of peace and connection is a valuable commodity.

Wishing you physical and emotional health and solitude!

Science has proven that watching the movement of ocean water at the beach can boost happiness and relieve stress.

Listening to the sound of the waves gently hitting shore can change brain wave patterns from an overactive to a more relaxed state.

Even the sound and soothing effect of water in the shower can enhance creativity and promote intuitive thinking.
