For the Love of Water

Posted from OmTimes:

Have you ever wondered why you feel so good after it rains?

That relaxed feeling you get at the beach, near the water, or after a thunderstorm is a result of the negative ions balancing the positive ones. Research has shown that we are physiologically prone to prefer landscapes with more negative ions.

Computers, dry winds and stagnated air in office buildings all create an accumulation of positive ions in the air, which cause our bodies to tense up and drains our energy. The accumulation of positively charged ions that stagnate in dry air are dispersed with the rain, at the edge of the ocean and on the banks of the river. Humans instinctively seek out these negative-ion rich environments because we know we need water.

Water is a simple and essential substance, one with which we interact every day of our lives; the way we hold water in our collective psyche has a profound impact on how we shape our lives. Our lungs are 90 percent water, our brains are 70 percent water and our blood is more than 80 percent water.

We need water to live. We need to drink it, swim in it, feel it in the soil and the air, and have it fall onto our heads.
