Why do so many of us feel drawn to water? Researchers around the globe have become increasingly intrigied by our psychological response to Blue Spaces: the sea, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. Studies are showing that being near water or blue space is an instant mood-lifter, helping us be present, less stressed and to feel more connected.
Join Dr Catherine Kelly, geographer, wellbeing practitioner ad cold water swimming enthusiast as she talks about the physical, psychological and social factors that connect water and wellbeing and explains why water makes us feel better.
