Have you ever felt like you,
personally, just weren’t enough—no matter how hard you try? Turns
out you are! And me, too! That was a discovery I made in the year
after my daughter Teal’s death in 2012. I start this show with a
related essay from my book Surrendering to Joy called What If You
Really Were Enough?
My guest in the main part is the wonderful Dr. Wallace J Nichols—a marine biologist and author of the very cool book, Blue Mind; The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier… His premise is simple—and one I’ve always suspected deep in my gut. Water just makes us… better! And here’s the science that proves it.
Honestly, this may be one of my favorite episodes… why? Cause I’m a water girl. Here’s a picture of me after my spontaneous dip in San Francisco Bay on a hot day last summer.
