A floating session should be a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. You are probably wondering how you’re going to reach that blissfulness by entering a float chamber, especially one that looks somewhat like a spaceship. Well here are a few tips that can help!
- A Positive Mindset
The mind is a powerful organ and you have the ability to control it! Start off with what you want to achieve from your float session. Is it relaxation, detoxification, mental clarity, mindful creativity, stress reduction or anxiety relief? Prepare your mind before the outcome.
- Eating Before A Float
The last thing you want to hear for an hour or longer is your digestive tract doing its job. A recommendation of eating about 1.5 hr. before will be just fine. Magnesium can also get your metabolism working asap, in case you’re having digestive issues.
- Breath Work
Breathing in and out for a good 10-15 min will help your mind relax. We are used to this fast paced life, so at times it can be hard to shut off. The Wim Hof breathing technique can be a wonderful addition to your breath work practice while in the float tank.
