You’ve likely heard that drinking eight glasses of water a day is good for you. Now, researchers are finding that simply being near water—oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds and possibly even fountains—also benefits your health. Outdoor spaces that include water, dubbed “blue spaces” by researchers, can be especially beneficial. And you don’t have to live by water to get the benefits. Even just being outdoors around decorative fountains, parks or yards with water features can have blue-space benefits. Read more about the benefits of blue spaces here.
