We all know we like the feeling of being by the water, and we flock to islands and beaches and pools every summer-- but why is that exactly? Wallace J. Nichols new book-- Blue Mind-- takes cutting-edge neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, human biology, and ecosystem analysis to demonstrate the healing power of water. He joined us to talk about how modern life produces fatigue, stress and over-stimulation, while water increases calm, diminishes anxiety, and increases professional success, creativity and productivity.
