Description



Book Synopsis



The 10th anniversary edition of the landmark book on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being.

A decade ago, marine biologist Dr. Wallace J. Nichols revolutionized how we think about our connection to water, exploring the questions we've long lacked answers to: Why are we drawn to lakes, rivers, oceans, beaches, and pools each summer? Why does being near water set our minds and bodies at ease, boost creativity, enhance wellness, and increase longevity? Over the past several years, Blue Mind has become the ultimate resource on the remarkable benefits of being near, in, on, or under water.

Combining cutting-edge neuroscience, psychology, and cross-disciplinary data with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, Nichols shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. Now with updated science-backed research, examples of innovative practitioners, and a new afterword on the far-reaching impact of this groundbreaking book, Blue Mind not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water; it provides a paradigm shifting "blueprint" for a movement to create better lives for everyone on this Blue Marble we call home.

About the Author



Wallace "J." Nichols, Ph.D., is a Research Associate at the California Academy of Sciences, Senior Fellow at The Center for the Blue Economy, and co/founder and advisor to numerous leading organizations--including The Blue Mind Movement. J's research, expeditions, and work as a lecturer and guide have taken him to coasts and waterways across North, Central and South America, to Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe, where he continually finds that the emotional connection to waters of all kinds--rather than force or financial gain--is what keeps his colleagues and collaborators working hard to understand and passionately restore our blue planet. Outside Magazine has called him "a visionary", while his tireless efforts to make #bluemind common knowledge and practice, advance human wellness, and improve environmental health have been broadcast via all major media platforms around the world.
