It’s been a year. You know we all need more time near, in, on or under the water we love, now. Let’s talk about it. Let’s explore #bluemind science and practice. When we undervalue anyone or anything, bad things happen. We have undervalued each other and our waters. Fixing these value equations is important. We’re not good at creatively and collaboratively solving problems in a state of red mind (anxiety and fear). It leads us into a gray mind state (burnout and breakdown). Wild, domestic, urban and virtual waters put us in a blue mind state, known for calmness, coherence, compassion, connection, contentment and curiosity.
What’s your water? When did you first fall in love with it? When we protect and restore the lakes, rivers and oceans of our blue planet the benefits are ecological, educational, economic AND emotional. A beautiful regenerative feedback loop occurs when we recognize, teach, share and activate the physical, social and emotional wellness benefits of healthy waters. Our physical, social and emotional health is the foundation of sustainability. Water time is medicine for our bodies, minds, hearts and souls. This is why we wish you water.
