Floating in body temperature super saturated salt water, in silence and darkness, is not for the claustrophobic. But turning off the input from your sight, hearing and touch senses creates a feedback loop that relaxes your body, which relaxes your mind.
An hour passes in what seems like minutes and I emerge calmer and refreshed, my mind still and rejuvenated.
As burnout is an ever present challenge I find a float session every few weeks a blessing and an escape from the “always on“ culture today.
Whether it's the Shower meditation , a breathing exercise, time in nature or a float session, taking the time to care for your wellbeing - physical, psychological or social is crucial as we all navigate the next normal (and the one after that and the one after that).
How do you look after yourself?
