A world of wonder and mystery, let these incredible ocean quotes open your mind and your heart to the great unknown.

Oceans are the lifeblood of our planet and all the creatures that live here.

They cover nearly three-quarters of the earth and hold 97% of our planet’s water.

Oceans affect our lives and those of our loved ones, no matter how far from the shore we live.

We depend on the oceans for the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and even the products that keep us warm, safe, informed and entertained.

Besides, research has shown that being near the ocean can make you calmer and more creative.

When you sit near the ocean and gaze out at the water, you give your brain and senses a rest from overstimulation, get into a mindful state, and trigger insights and ideas that eluded you while you were sitting at your computer.

Ocean water can also inspire you to be more compassionate and connected.

While in the restful, contemplative state associated with interacting with water, you are likely to experience feelings of awe, which can increase your capacity for connection and empathy.

Besides, a workout by or in ocean water can be more beneficial to your body and mind than exercising in a crowded, hectic gym environment.
