The healing effects of the ocean

In March, my story for the Coastal Review Online was awarded best beat feature writing in North Carolina by the North Carolina Press Association. This was a big honor for me and one that I am quite humbled to receive. 

People have long known the soothing effects of the ocean, as so many over worked, over stressed, over civilized vacationers across the US who flock to beaches come summer can attest. But thanks to pioneering work being done by neurologists, environmental psychologists, and researchers from a host of different disciplines, we are beginning to reveal the science behind such healing properties of the sea.  Its called Blue Mind. And there is some heavy hitting science to back it all up.
