I chat with author Dr Wallace 'J' Nichols ('J' to his friends), who wrote the international best selling book 'Blue Mind'.
The book re-defines how we see water, by connecting all the benefits and the science for a life changing substance whose value to many of us has been hidden in plain sight.
It also explains why SUP has become so popular recently!
23rd July is 'World Blue Mind Day' and you can take part in it, by bringing someone who needs it, to your water and sharing the story with #bluemind
