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

Written by Wallace J. Nichols

OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  We love water, but do you wonder why? We flock to the ocean and lakes to sit quietly taking it all in. We need water daily to survive. We love to splash and float in water. “The Blue Mind story seeks to reconnect people to nature in ways that make them feel good, and shows them how water can help them become better versions of themselves.”

Water is life and it touches us physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Water can give us a sense of weightlessness, floating, calm, and being fully protected. Wallace makes a strong case supported by scientists that our many connections to water are important to a happy and healthy life. 

Our planet, when viewed from outer space, looks like a blue marble. Our world, blue with water, is something to cherish. Nichol’s book reminds us of how connected we are to each other and nature.
