It’s summer!! Time to head to the water. You probably know intuitively what scientific studies have verified: we get psychological benefits from spending time next to, in, or on the water.
There is even a term for it – Blue Mind is the mildly meditative, relaxed state we experience around a natural body of water. That is the reason why I look for locations that are on the water when I plan a retreat.
So if you are planning a vacation, going on a retreat, or taking a day for rest and relaxation, consider giving yourself the gift of Blue Mind and head for a natural body of water.
