NASA recently released more pics and videos from the International Space Station. What those of us who are conscious water lovers notice immediately is how although they are in space the pics are often of earth and the water. (for videos and pics from NASA click here) We all react to the image and sound of water even if we aren't aware. Access to the benefits of open water near your home has health and mental benefits we are only just now starting to understand scientifically but have understood viscerally since the beginning of our species awakening.
Sometimes, as we are building a pond, stream or fountain for a client we get bogged down in the specifications, equipment, site leveling and efficiency. But, the end result is always something that relaxes us! We build ponds because we love to be near water, we love to key into the sound of the stream, we are pond geeks! Just like those astronauts who take a bunch of ocean pics - we are all water lovers.
Would you like to come home and in your yard or house have the experience of running water soothing your work weary body and mind? Go for a refreshing dip to reduce your stress, release neurochemicals to stave off dementia and build lean muscle. (for an article on swimming healthy benefits click here) Waterpaw can install a swimming pond in your yard. Wouldn't a large healthy swim pond look so much better than an antiseptic chlorinated pool? Our ponds have waterfalls, frogs, fish, plants and attract birds, butterfly's, dragonflies and smiles.
Even if the world is loud, crazy, hectic and busy your yard doesn't have to be. Bring some nature back into your yard and life with Waterpaw Ponds!
