We don’t know how much tension we carry until the weight is lifted from our shoulders. We don’t realise how much time we spend overthinking until our minds grow quiet and free. We don’t feel the extent of our exhaustion until we are truly rested. This emotional and physical strain becomes a part of us, following us around everyday, unwanted yet accepted. We fail to break down these walls we’ve built ourselves restricting us from reaching our full potential, settling instead of exceeding.
We tell ourselves we have no time to sit down and relax, while we clean the spotless spare room that hasn’t been used in years for the third time this week. We insist that we are too busy to meditate, while we iron clothes with no creases that won’t be worn for months. We refuse to stay in bed in the morning reading a book, as our daily to-do list that adds zero value to our lives is deemed too important to ignore for a second longer.
We have become a generation of doers, constantly on the go, doing and doing and doing some more, and it seems that we are capable of doing absolutely everything. Absolutely everything except for absolutely nothing. Somewhere along the way, we have lost our ability to shut ourselves off, mind nor body nor soul.
Enter: Floatation therapy…
Floatation therapy offers a platform on which to relax in the form of a soundproof tank full of water, heated to body temperature, with enough Epsom salts to allow for effortless floating. An isolated hour of pure relaxation to the point of sensory deprivation, floatation therapy is what our minds, bodies & souls so desperately crave.
The uses of floatation therapy range from injury recovery and overcoming phobias & addictions, to creative visualisation and everything in between, and the endless benefits are scientifically proven.
In today’s fast paced and demanding society, a build up of stress and exhaustion is inevitable. Now, more so than ever, we need to take an active role in our own physical & mental well being. Time is valuable and it’s often felt that there is “just not enough hours in the day.” But it’s about how we use these hours, and taking time to do nothing should be highly prioritised.
