You have probably noticed how spending a day at or near the water makes you feel more relaxed, rested, and re-energized. These feelings are real, not just in your head. Scientific research confirms that when you spend time by the water, your brain changes. Your mind is put into a restful almost hypnotic space, thanks to the soothing smells and sounds of the water. Researchers refer to this as “blue space.”
Why Bringing Balance to your Emotions is Important
Bringing Balance to your Emotions is important for a Healthy and Happy Life. Emotions such as sadness, fear and anger become causes of disease when they are allowed to take over your mind, and you do not recognize them for what they are and bring about a balanced understanding toward them. Under normal circumstances, they are not a cause of disease. Hardly any human being can avoid being angry, sad, aggrieved, worried, or afraid at some time in his or her life but those states will not lead to long lasting disharmony. The emotions become causes of disease only when they are either long-lasting, or very intense.
