As an extremely busy person, I’m always looking for ways to unplug and get centered. That’s when I discovered Just Float. What exactly is this floating phenomenon? According to their website, “Imagine a really large private bathtub with less than a foot of warm water in it. The water contains so much Epsom salt, you float effortlessly. Each suite is also soundproof, and if you choose to turn the light off, completely dark. This distraction-free environment is the antidote to modern living.” So here are six reasons why every LA Girl should just float!
Insomnia comes in many forms but it’s never a welcome visitor to your bed. Floating for just 2 hours a week or 2 weeks has been shown to improve insomnia symptoms for 12 weeks. Begin a one-a-week float habit and start sleeping better!
Change Bad Habits
Maybe you smoke or habitually consume multiple boxes of cookies. No judgement but if you’re interested in slaying some of your dragons, floating can help. Studies find an improved connection between consciousness and physiology through regular floating. Individuals who float are able to bring more awareness to their choices and how those choices affect how they physically feel.
Meditate Without Practicing
Meditation is good for us but many are intimidated by the idea of practicing regularly to reap its rewards. Studies show that people who float often times achieve many of the same benefits of meditation with a fraction of the effort. Just lay down and float, it’s that simple!
Escape Traffic and Achieve Solitude
Numerous studies have shown floatation therapy to be an incredibly effective and accessible way to reduce many symptoms of stress. Participants in studies experienced elevated moods, better sleep, reduced cortisol levels and lower blood pressure. Stress makes life harder, floating is an easy solution!
Enhance your creativity
Floating has been shown to invigorate creative thinking and problem solving and increase energy. Whether you want to improve the quality of your artistic pursuits or just perform better work, enhanced creativity is just a float away.
Adding float therapy to your “to-do’s” gives much-needed self care and “me time” to refresh yourselves for an hour and re-set your mind, sooth your soul and emerge renewed.
