The benefits of BOATING
29 April 2021
The benefits of boating far outweigh the costs of boating.
Being on the water does all sorts of wonderful things to you and for you. The impact it has on our mind and bodies is incredible; the connection between water and our happiness is very real.
Have you heard of ‘Blue Mind’? Scientist and Marine Biologist Wallace J. Nichols describes this as a “mildly meditative state characterised by calm, peaceful, unity and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life”. Doesn’t this sound divine!
Boating promotes physiological and psychological changes across your health and wellness, awe and wonder, creativity and play, happiness, and relaxation. It appeals to our senses – the sight of water induces a flood of neurochemicals that promote wellness. Connecting with nature will tickle your soul, bringing positive energy to your mind. The sunshine provides Vitamin D which promotes healthy bones and in medically proven to improve your mood.

The remedy to modern day life is………………………………….(drum roll sound)
Tapping out of the hustle and bustle, unplugging from your device, putting your health and wellbeing first and foremost.
FALL INTO A ‘BLUE STATE OF MIND‘
