The Power of Being in the Water: You don't have to master the crawl to reap the benefits of a "blue mind".
Posted on Jul 30th, 2020
While plenty of people here are devoted to daily swims, I meet many who haven’t gone in the water for years. They’re too busy. They think it’s a vacation thing, or for kids. If you’re one of those people, I hope you will regain your “blue mind.” Now is the time to jump — or gently glide — into a pond or the sea.
Can you tell I’ve been reading Wallace J. Nichols’s best-selling book, Blue Mind? Take a deep breath for its full title, Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do. Well, I’ve certainly seen the way getting into the water can create a sense of mental well-being.
