“I read a lot about why our brains love the ocean, and it turns out, our gray matter is actually hardwired to react positively to the Earth’s blue matter.”
I saw that question posted on Instagram and I decided it’s anywhere I can see the sea.
And then I wondered if there was more to it than the way it looks and sounds. ? So I did what any curious person that has access to the internet does. I Googled it. 🙂
I read a lot about the science behind why our brains love the ocean, and it turns out our gray matter is actually hardwired to react positively to the Earth’s blue matter.
Studies show that just being near water can calm and connect us, increase innovation and insight, and even heal what’s broken. One scientist/biologist/ecologist calls it Blue Mind. I love that.
Fascinating how our thoughts and emotions can be shaped by our interaction with the most prevalent substance on our planet, isn’t it?
And while I’m delving deep, have I told you that I’m really happy you’re here lately? Here on the blog and here on this big blue marble with me? I am. 🙂 Pretty neat that we get to share this chunk of time, on this chunk of rock. Although, if water is the most prevalent substance on our planet, maybe I should say chunk of water? 😉
Anywho, I look forward to reading where you do your best thinking if you feel like sharing today too!
