Unwind On Weekends With Floatation Therapy

Weekends are a time for you to relax, unwind and let go of all your worries after a week’s hard toil. If you’d like to switch into relaxed mode even more effectively why not try a float, so your stress can just drift away?

Floatation therapy reduces stress, makes it easier to relax and is a great way of making sure you really do your best to recharge when you have downtime. This therapy can be combined with other approaches too to maximise the effect. Here are a few other great ways of relieving stress and recharging so that the benefit of your float is multiplied.

Get on a gadget detox.

In our modern screen dominated digital world, it is no surprise that you find yourself constantly connected online. We are constantly bombarded with information from various sources on a daily basis, and this influx of information isn’t necessarily a relaxing prospect. Indeed all these mental stimuli can cause varying levels of stress. Why not try staying away from your phones and tablets for a day. Unplug yourself from the digital space and check out other activities that encourage you to spend less screen time such as listening to music, going for a walk, reading a book or even visiting friends.

Eat well.

Give your body the nutrients it deserves. Take care of your body by consuming nutritious meals and healthy snacks. Indulge your taste buds in food that not only tastes good but also contributes to making you feel healthy. Stay away from overly processed stuff and try and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.  You’ll be surprised how much better you will feel. Also when thinking of having a float with us, make sure you stay away from coffee if you can before your session.

Move it or lose it.

Paradoxically being active and exercising will make it easier for you to relax properly afterwards. A good night’s sleep is often the added benefit of being active during the day. So, being active and then having a float afterwards can be a great thing when it comes to achieving a deep sense of relaxation.

Often you may associate relaxing with lazing around, but if your work confines you to a desk all week, you should make sure you get some exercise as it will make it easier to relax properly later. Try getting your hands on a pedometer and doing 10,000 steps a day. This makes for a great floatation session and while 10,000 steps sound like a lot it is only around 8 kilometres, depending on how big your stride is.

Cap all of this off with floatation therapy.

Float therapy is an excellent way to relax your mind and body. A float tank will remove all outside stimuli, which frees you up to delve deeper into yourself and focus on clearing the mind. It helps your brain reach the theta state – a state typically achieved through advanced meditation. The result is you will feel rejuvenated and a lot less stressed.
