How Floating Helps Me Gain New Perspective

"Being a small business owner with a growing team to lead, I work very hard and my mind is always turned on dreaming up the next innovative idea and better ways to operate."

The rain drops from the shower head descend slowly as they glow in the lavender light. I step naked underneath them to wash away the stress and business from the day. I take a deep breath. Already I feel calmer. A layer of soap washes away more stress and residue from the daily burdens and pressures I feel. I am now ready.

I step in. The warm, salty water starts to lap at my body and I close the lid. Ahhhhhhhh.

I hear nothing. I see nothing. I smell nothing. I taste nothing. But I can feel. I feel my shoulders relax and melt into the water as I lie down, suspended. I feel my heart rate lower. I feel all the tension in my body disappear. I feel my mind slow as I give myself this forced time-out.

I started floating three years ago when Float House first opened. After my first float, I was hooked. I became a member instantly. I greatly enjoyed the peace it brought me and relaxed perspective I had after each float. Being a small business owner with a growing team to lead, I work very hard and my mind is always turned on dreaming up the next innovative idea and better ways to operate.

Sometimes when conflict or a stressful situation happens at work, I have to force myself not to react in haste. Instead, to deal with the problem after floating allows my mind and body to react differently to the situation - without emotion, and with a broader perspective.

I am able to see the big picture.

Being able to step away from it all, relax my mind and put things in perspective are only some of the benefits I receive from floating. I feel that floating restores and recharges my mind and body so that I can return to my life, family/friend commitments and work with renewed energy and spirit. I used to splurge and treat myself to a spa massage once or twice a year to experience that "Ahhhhh" feeling. But now with Float House, I only have to spend a fraction of the cost and have the convenience of multiple locations and times of the day to float.

In order to gain fresh perspectives, restore energy, and feel ultimate relaxation, I highly recommend everyone schedule a forced time-out into their lives on a regular basis. Float House, in part, has helped me achieve great success as an evolving leader and business owner.
