2020 rings in a new year, a new decade, and for many, a chance for a “new you”. But what was wrong with the old you? Here are some ideas to do what you already like to do, just better!
If You Like to Be Creative
Creativity is not fluid. You will not experience the same amount of creativity an hour, a day, a week, sometimes even longer. Many clients enjoy floating to feel more creative. To enhance this feeling, True REST has an exclusive Creativity Program that you can listen to while floating. If you are quick to leave after your float, make sure to mentally schedule a few minutes at the end to journal or color in the oasis room. This reflective time after floating can get the creativity juices flowing.
If You Like to Be Relaxed
Relaxing can seem far and few between in day to day life. Many people take time for vacations so they can feel relaxed, but why wait for once or twice a year? If you enjoy being relaxed then taking the time to float once or twice a month can be just the thing you need. One way to esnure relaxation at True REST is allowing yourself plenty of time to arrive at the spa and get checked in. Another tip is to make sure your phone is off, on airplane mode, or if you must- on vibrate. As many spas have found, having a clock can be distracting from the relaxation experience. Try to refrain from checking your phone and simply float. You’ll know your time is up by the music in the pod slowly brining you out of relaxation mode.
If You Like Holistic Remedies
There has always been a debate between modern medicine and holistic medicine. If you are someone who prefers a holistic approach, than floating is the right option for you. Dr. Feinstein at the Libr Institute shares his research on how floating can provide relief in a myriad of situations,
“The open-label trial from Dr. Justin Feinstein’s Float Clinic and Research Center at LIBR in 50 patients provides an initial proof-of-principle study showing that 1-hour of float therapy can provide significant short-term relief from symptoms of stress and anxiety across a range of different conditions including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.”
