There is a Zen proverb that goes something like this:
“If you don’t have time to meditate for an hour everyday, you should meditate for two hours.”
The benefits of meditation are significant, especially with a regular practice, and floating is much the same (as it provides an easier pathway to deeper states of mindfulness and meditation through the sensory deprivation environment).
It’s easy to get caught up and have our time be fully blocked off with endless tasks or wasted away scrolling on our mobile screens.
Without the right reminders or strategies, our time can get lost and leave little room for the things that help us be at our best.
It’s not about what we have time for, but about what we prioritize.
If you haven’t floated before, see this page for an idea of the type of benefits.
If you have, think back to that post-float glow and how you felt over the following days. Was your mind more sharp and clear? Your body more at ease? Did you feel more relaxed and calm despite the challenges that arose for you?
Now think about if those benefits persisted even longer and started to compound together, that’s what happens when you commit to a regular float practice. Going one to four times per month can have a transformational impact on your life.
If you’re already starting to see those effects, it’s important to set yourself up properly so that floating remains a priority. You can always schedule your next session before you leave the center after a float. Or you can request us to setup recurring appointments for you to reduce the likelihood you’ll forget.
Remember that floating is an investment in becoming your best self.
Treat it that way and the benefits will only continue to compound for you.
