Being Near Water Boosts Mental Health

Dr. Natalie Azar, a medical contributor for NBC News, explained why being close to water improves our emotional well-being. To start with, it expand our horizons; the smell of water and its sound brings us memories, sometimes nostalgic, that allow us to calm down and evoke emotions and finally, the water is always in movement, so, this sensation gives us the ability to reflect.

The professional recommended reading studies about “blue spaces”, a topic that suggest that those who live near water have better emotional well-being.

“If you are in a body of water, your internal state just becomes calm.”
