People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, composed music and drafted whole portions of books while floating.
With nothing to distract you, your level of creativity, concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing.
Floating is about everything you won’t be doing.
You won’t be righting gravity:
The 1200 lbs. of epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie comfortably in your back.
The water is kept at 93.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.
Your ears stay just below the water, and the tank is insulated against sound.
Noise from the outside doesn’t reach you. After you shut the door the lights dim, the music fades and you float in silence and total darkness.
During your float, the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.
It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information your body and mind have a lot of extra resources at their disposal.
Your mind is free to relax, process and explore without distraction. Your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body gets to rest, de-stress, and heal.
