Blue Mindful is the state of "clean water understanding." Integrating this understanding is essential to a healthy existence.
Feeling gratitude for the availability of clean water is paramount to taking action to protect it.
We protect what we love. We love what we need and what feels special to us.
I found the perfect book to support and build on this premise: Blue Mind by Wallace J. Nichols. "The surprising science,” he writes, “that shows how being near, in, on, or under water can make [us] happier, healthier, more connected and better at what [we] do."
Dr. Nichols' claim is lofty, but he does a great job supporting it with all kinds of statistics and anecdotes. I especially appreciate his holistic approach, emphasizing the seeming contradiction "emotional science.”
Nichols offers up observations made by the Apollo 17 astronauts, referring to OUR earth as the tiny blue planet; a blue marble in space.
Water is everywhere. In us. We are of it. Without water there is nothing.
