Mental health & blue space

So according to this article and I would say from personal experience as well, it appears that living near water is good for your mental health. I know I’m only around water one week of each year and that’s when we’re on vacation at our cabin on Town Line Lake in Minnesota, but I definitely feel more relaxed there the longer we are at the cabin.

The article that apparently supports this theory is entited “Living Near Water Boosts Mental Health” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger. So the next time you’re surrounded by water, see if you’re not more relaxed.

Sincerely-

Walden pond

So I just went to my bookshelves and found my copy of Walden and Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau. If I remember right, I read it on an airplane going to Paris, I think.

So when I came across this article on a documentary entitled Walden, it was an article I had to read. The article is entitled “‘Walden’ Embraces Thoreau’s Message” by Starre Vartan over at the Mother Nature Network.

Now I just need to watch the video and reread the book. The question is, where should I take a plane ride?

Sincerely-
