Blue Mind – A New Book for the New Year

My New Year resolves 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, he shows how 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 online 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. Read along with water-loving friends around the world: January 16th to March 25th, 2017, sign up for free at
