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.
You know those days where you feel fragile, where you've been stretched too far too fast and you're frantically trying to hold it all together while doing a million things, but it all breaks apart anyway? That was me last night, in tears and feeling defeated as I walked into Healing One to float. Hugs from your friends are incredibly healing, but hugs coupled with a float is the ultimate feel good prescription, I am now convinced.
Recently, we launched a new industry-wide campaign, #WhyWeFloat, to help you share personal and powerful stories to help promote floating to the world, so more people can benefit from this practice and improve their lives. Tell your story using #WhyWeFloat and you will be entered to win a trip for 2 to Kauai, Hawaii! Click through to find out more.
If there was to be a major theme taken from all of my floats, it would be time. Time is always on my mind, whether I'm in or outside the tank, so it makes sense that my thinking would be focused on it throughout my floats. All of these thoughts and more flow throughout my mind, but what the sensory-deprived environment of the floatation tank allows me is a space where I can start to examine these thoughts and where they may stem from. Why am I so focused on and anxious about time?
