“The term ‘blue mind’ describes the mildly meditative state we fall into when near, in, on, or underwater,” said Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, author of Blue Mind. “It’s the antidote to what we refer to as ‘red mind,’ which is the anxious, over-connected, and over-stimulated state that defines the new normal of modern life. Research has proven that spending time near the water is essential to achieving elevated and sustained happiness.”
The presentation will answer some of these questions...
Why do so many people vacation by the water?
Why do you get your best thoughts in the shower?
Why do we feel calmer when walking on the beach?
Why does awareness of our ecosystem impact our wellbeing?
Participants will receive a Zoom link the day of the event.
