Ellen’s November Recommendation

Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do by Wallace J. Nichols

Ellen says: “This book is an intriguing mix of science and stories about how we connect to water and its effect on our physical and mental health.  It covers a lot of ground, using ecopsychology and scientific studies to expound on the benefits of water.  I found the sections on the use of water activities in the treatment of addiction, autism, and PTSD particularly interesting.  The impact of water on our health and happiness is objectively explored and I appreciated  Nichols’ explanations of “Blue Mind” as it relates to neuroplasticity. ”
