Spend some quality time with yourself
“The relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.” Robert Holden
Self-care is about looking after yourself and your mental health. It’s crucial to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself in order to build healthy relationships with others. Being kind to yourself regularly is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
Many people say the only time they put their phone away and check in on their inner-self is during an hour long float. Floating helps us to connect to ourselves without distractions, as we are more focused on relaxing than anything else. The idea of floating in salt water is that it helps us to relax by reducing stress and releasing tension in the body.
We know that staying in touch with our minds and bodies is important. We need to keep ourselves healthy, managing stress, anxiety, insomnia, and burnout. Floating can help us with these things because it keeps us connected. It helps us feel better so that we don’t find ourselves at our limits.
The pod can be a place that helps us feel the outside world and inside our bodies, connect with what’s most important to us, and observe our thoughts. This might help us process what’s happening in our lives, think about things from another perspective, or give us time to consider how we want to change or how we might go about doing that.
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation.” Audre Lorde
However you choose to use your float time, you’re giving yourself a real treat!
