Imagine sitting at your desk, looking out through a window on a sea of cars, houses, buildings, roads.

How do you feel now?

Water calms us, it reduces stress. And since stress causes disease, that’s a good thing. Combine that with the proven cognitive value of simply taking a walk outside plus the creativity and insight generated by the color blue and you get a potent brew we call “Blue Mind.”
