My New Year’s Resolution is to read this book written by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, heshows how the proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. ” Blue Mind” not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water-it provides a paradigm shifting “blueprint” for a better life on this Blue Marble we call home.”
The forward was written by Céline Cousteau, granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau. I am a huge fan of both Céline and her brother, Fabien.
As an added bonus, there is an on-line book club. Daily excerpts from Blue Mind will be broadcast on Radio Hatteras along with weekly interviews with the author featuring questions from readers and guest protagonists from the book.
