Big Benefits from Spending Time On, Under, or Around Water


We all know we like the feeling of being by the water, and we flock to islands and beaches and pools every summer-- but why is that exactly?  Wallace J. Nichols new book-- Blue Mind-- takes cutting-edge neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, human biology, and ecosystem analysis to demonstrate the healing power of water.  He joined us to talk about how modern life produces fatigue, stress and over-stimulation, while water increases calm, diminishes anxiety, and increases professional success, creativity and productivity.
