Who hasn't felt that sense of calm that washes over the body when you find yourself next to a place of water? It is as though the water in our own bodies recognizes the body of water in front of us, and a sense of coming home occurs. Perhaps this is why it is easy to get lost in watching the ocean waves, the bubbling of a brook, or the current of a river. The sense of calm and ease is inherent in being next to water. In this week's blog, guest writer David Davis explores how incorporating time next to water is not only great for overall health, but especially for the health of seniors. May this piece inspire you to get outside and find a body of water to be next to, even if only for an hour. Enjoy!
