What is the “Blue Mind”?
As researcher and discover of the “blue mind” theory, marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols puts it: “the term “blue mind” describes the mildly meditative state we fall into when near, in, on or under water.” [Source: ‘Blue Mind’: Why being near the water makes you happy – USA Today]
Water and it’s blue mind effect is the antidote to what we refer to as the red mind, which is the anxious, over-connected and over-stimulated state that defines the new normal of modern life. [Source: ‘Blue Mind’: Why being near the water makes you happy – USA Today]
Research has proven that spending time near the water is essential to achieving an elevated and sustained happiness.
Those of us who love to spend time in Cayman’s beautiful water can attest to the water’s power to inspire relaxation and promote personal rejuvenation.
And it’s no wonder that so many hotels and resorts are situated on the water, as travelers often pay a premium just to hear the sea!
How Does Water Affect the Brain?
When we step away from our high-stressed lives and step into nature, we experience a shift.
Nichols explained this shift from a scientific perspective:
“Physiologically, our brains and bodies change. Water makes us relax, and the quality of our thought changes; a different brain network activates. That brain network is available for a completely different kind of quality of thought which is much more introspective and self-referential. Oftentimes it leads to feelings of connectedness and that can lead to innovative thoughts.” [Source:‘Blue Mind’ explores the calming effect that water has on people by Eric Niiler Washington Post]
“We’ve found that being near water boosts creativity, can enhance the quality of conversations and provides a backdrop to important parts of living — like play, romance, and grieving,” explains Nichols. [Source: ‘Blue Mind’: Why being near the water makes you happy – USA Today]
