Healthy Living: Happiness in the water
Research published in the journal of Environmental Psychology finds 'blue spaces' like rivers, lakes or the ocean can help our minds move into a meditative state lowering stress levels, heart rates and in the end... make you happier. Think about it, many of us are willing to pay more for a view of the water, whether it's a hotel room or a home. So there must be a reason for it. Researchers also say people who sleep close to nature get a better night's rest.
