From world-class athletes looking for a competitive edge, to everyday workaholics looking for better ways to manage the physical stresses of daily life, one of the primary reasons that people float on a regular basis is to tap into the body’s natural ability to recover. By helping you reach an unparalleled level of relaxation, or homeostasis, a float tank allows your body to divert resources that are normally reserved for dealing with the external world to the process of healing instead.
It’s no secret that we love our technology. Smart phones are ubiquitous in the modern world, and for good reason. By simply reaching into our pockets, we’re allowed instant communication with anyone in the world, access to nearly all of recorded human knowledge, and the ability to create and manifest our ideas and projects. Whether you were born post-internet or not, it’s easy to take it all for granted. It’s good to remind ourselves just how incredible we’ve got it!
But with these amazing capabilities, there is of course a downside. Lacking a mindful approach, we can quite easily become too attached and even addicted to the endless buzzes and pings from texts, emails, social media posts, etc.
