A CHARITY CREATING EXPERIENCES IN, ON & AROUND BLUE SPACES

Home: Welcome

Advocating the benefits of water

We are a charity dedicated to creating experiences in, on or around blue spaces. Blue spaces are areas that are close to water either inland or by the sea. 

 

Spending time by blue spaces can make us happier and healthier. Bluetonic offers resources, activity and information that helps anyone become more active in blue spaces.

Research has shown that being near, in, on or under water can provide a long list of benefits for our mind and body, including lowering stress and anxiety and increasing an overall sense of well-being and happiness.

 

Locally,  in the East Midlands we support local groups of people that struggle to gain access to blue spaces, due to factors such as age, sex, race, or economic hardship.

WATER IS POWERFUL

WHY IS JUST BEING AROUND WATER GOOD FOR US?

Blue Mind

The Blue Mind is a phrase coined by Wallace J Nichols who is a marine biologist, author and movement creator. He has  championed, studied, collaborated and pioneered the concept that water makes us happier, more connected and better at what you do.

He is the author of the brilliant book the Blue Mind.  This is well worth a read and helps to understand the things that underpin the work of Bluetonic.

The theory of evolution states we came from water.
We have settled near water, building cities by the coast and sea.
We are predominately made of water.
60% of our bodies and 70% of our brain is water.
We seek out water on our holidays by lakes, rivers and seas.
Jumping in and playing in swimming pools
Or sitting by the pool with a good book.
The majority of photographs people take have blue spaces as a backdrop.
People tend to take a glass of water to bed, but rarely drink it.


Water is such a big part of our lives already, but at Bluetonic we want people to be more conscious of its benefits. Lots of activity in blue space is free. Just sitting in a blue space and being present has a positive impact on our wellbeing. So why not take up a new hobby, learn a new skill or practice some simple mindfulness exercises in a blue space and see for yourself the impact?
