Floating away

Whilst being stuck in bed with the flu day two or three (hell if I remember), I have been talking to my mom in law. She made us an appointment next month to go do a 90 minute float in a sensory deprivation float tank. If you’ve ever seen Stranger Things, you know exactly which scene in particular I’m talking about. If not, I’ll give you the basic rundown. Pretty much what it is, how it works, all that. So the tank itself is a lightless soundproof tank that has a really high amount of epsom salt content filled with salt water that is skin temperature warm. Pretty much you get in and relax as you float. The buoyancy in your body as well as in the water helps you to float. You aren’t completely submerged so your face is still above water. I’ll include a sample picture down below. Since I suffer from anxiety, she thinks it just might help me reset myself, which I don’t disagree. So pretty much 90 full minutes of complete and utter silence which to be honest I could use right about now. I’m actually really excited to do it, even though water hasn’t been the greatest to me in the past. I think it will be really interesting to experience, so after we are done I’ll be sure to update you guys on how it went. Anyway, I’m going to end this here so I can stuff my face with food and shower. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.


Here’s the website if anybody is interested!
