Mildly-meditative, kind of relaxed state we move into when we’re near, in, on, or under water, or when we’re thinking about those things. There’s science backing up how water shifts our mental state, our emotional state, how it calms us and centers us, how it connects us to each other in the best possible ways, and even boosts creativity.   Maintaining the Blue Mind State Prioritize your water time. Prioritize your down time. Understand what your body needs to restore May be sleep May be a long soaking bath May be a mindful shower May be a float spa - a sensory deprivation tank May be a weekend retreat to the lake, ocean, river, or mountains   What is Red Mind? Our normal base state in modern society; you’re wired, you’re dialed in, you’re over-connected, you’re striving towards goals. While necessary if it’s all you have you will burn out. It affects our sleep, it affects our performance, it affects our relationships, it affects our physical wellbeing, and our emotional wellbeing.   What is Grey Mind? When you’ve hit burn out stage by living only in Red Mind constantly. It’s just the burnt out, indifferent, numbed-out, disconnected, don’t care much about anything anymore state, mildly depressed, or even severely depressed. And we’ve all been there, too, where you’re just spent. And that may last an afternoon, it may last days, weeks, months, and even years. It’s the chronic social and psychological stress that just eats you up, that never goes away.   Relieving the Grey Mind State Exercise Diet Supplements Social interactions Experiencing the beauty of nature, being out, being in awe and wonder, out on the water, out on the mountain, and moving your body outside.   J’s 3 Big Takeaways Emotional health is the basis of sustainability. Have a health value equation - when we UNDERvalue anything or anyone bad things happen. Idea of common knowledge - something moves from private knowledge, or shared knowledge, into the realm of common knowledge, that we all know.   Ocean Health Impacts Human Health 71 percent of the planet’s covered by ocean. It holds the most life, the most diversity, and it’s the source of life. Various aspects of the problems, whether it’s overfishing, or plastic pollution, warming oceans Ecologically, it’s obviously very important. An educational perspective, whether it’s metaphors, ocean metaphors, or just learning about the ocean science, there’s just educational component. The oceans are a big source of emotional health in humans. That stress that water removes, that affects every single cell in our body, every single thing we do, our creativity, our relationships, our wellness, everything, how we interact with everybody, and how we interact with everything is affected by that stress reduction     Deeper Dive Resources   Blue Mind - The Documentary http://organixx18.mybluemind.hop.clickbank.net/?pid=215&tid=podcast-20190522   HASHTAG: Find More on Social Media #BlueMind   Dr. Wallace “J” Nichols Website https://www.patreon.com/wallacejnichols   BOOK: 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 https://amzn.to/2LrlU0e   BOOK: Blue Mind: How Water Makes You Happier, More Connected and Better at What You Do https://amzn.to/2PQWBTJ   Quality of Life with Flotation Therapy for a Person Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, Atypical Autism, PTSD, Anxiety and Depression https://file.scirp.org/pdf/OJMP_2013070515551414.pdf   Benefits of nature: what we are learning about why people respond to nature. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17435348   See The Wild (Travel Options) https://seethewild.org/   Evaluation of the Effect of Preoperative Natural Water Fountain Melody on Teenagers’ Behavior- Preliminary Study http://article.sapub.org/10.5923.j.sociology.20120204.04.html   Climatotherapy at the Dead Sea: an effective treatment modality for atopic dermatitis with significant positive impact on quality of life. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22653123   The impact of blue space on human health and well-being - Salutogenetic health effects of inland surface waters: a review. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21665536     More green space is linked to less stress in deprived communities: Evidence from salivary cortisol patterns https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0169204611003665   Natural Scene Statistics Account for the Representation of Scene Categories in Human Visual Cortex https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0896627313005503   Efficacy of Warm Showers on Labor Pain and Birth Experiences During the First Labor Stage https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1552-6909.2012.01424.x   Favorite green, waterside and urban environments, restorative experiences and perceived health in Finland. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20176589
