Self Care ❤

On reason we brought Float Therapy to Jacksonville was to be a space of Self Care!

No matter how indulgent or fancy the word may sound, self-care is crucial for our physical, emotional and mental well-being. We totally understand the struggle of finding that balance but we are here to share some tips that have assisted us!

  • Know your worth: Self-care is important to maintain a healthy relationship with yourself as it produces positive feelings and boosts your confidence and self-esteem. Also, self-care is necessary to remind yourself and others that you and your needs are important too! The saying of being unable to help others unless you help yourself is so true!

  • A healthy work-life balance: Contrary to common belief, workaholism is not a virtue. Overwork, and the accompanying stress and exhaustion can make you less productive, disorganized and emotionally depleted. It can also lead to all sorts of health problems, from anxiety and depression to insomnia and heart diseases. Professional self-care habits like taking intermittent breaks (for lunch, calling your mom, or taking a stroll), setting professional boundaries, avoiding overextending, etc. ensures that you stay sharp, motivated and healthy.

  • Stress management: While a little dose of stress is a healthy way to give us a nudge that we need to meet the deadlines or finish that overdue task, constant stress and anxiety can have an adverse effect on your mental and physical health. Smart self-care habits like eating healthy, connecting with a loved one or, practicing meditation cuts down the toxic effects of stress by improving your mood and boosting your energy and confidence levels.

  • Start living, stop existing: Life is a precious gift. So why waste it when we have the choice to have a more meaningful existence? Yes, you have a lot of responsibilities— fixing the dryer, mowing the lawn, paying bills. But it’s important to remember that taking care of yourself is also your responsibility. Little things like sipping tea while looking at the raindrops racing down the window glass, enjoying a bubble bath, or reading a book are essential for your daily happiness. While things like taking up a new hobby or learning a new language can make your life more purposeful by giving you a new reason to get up in the morning.

Float into Fall

Transitioning into Fall is a time for reflection

Become mindful of the ways you m o v e + l i v e this season

Sharing our favorite tips to transition into fall with ease

1. GO O U T S I D E

Especially if you’re located in FL - Take the time to get outside - 10 minutes is plenty of time to soak up some vitamin D + explore the world around you. Use the extra sunlight of the day to enjoy breathing in fresh air and being present in the natural world. Bike- Walk - Kayak - SUP there are so many ways in FL to exercise outside while having fun!

2. F O C U S + F LOW

Bring your awareness to all that you do + let your expressions be mindful. As you wash the dishes - drive your car - do all daily activities. Can you cultivate a state of presence while doing so?

When we allow ourselves to be completely immersed in a flow state ( In positive psychologyflow, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting loss in one's sense of space and time.)

3. C R E A T E

Take time to do what feels good for you! Create art - music - movement - Take the time to move your body or utilize your brain in a way that makes you feel good.

4. B R E A T H E

Sit somewhere you are comfortable and start to deepen your breathing..start to notice the way each breath fills and empties the body.

Conscious Breathing Technique

To start, put one hand on your belly and the other on your chest as in the belly breathing exercise.

  1. Take a deep, slow breath from your belly, and silently count to 4 as you breathe in.

  2. Hold your breath, and silently count from 1 to 6

  3. Breathe out completely as you silently count from 1 to 8.

  4. Try to get all the air out of your lungs by the time you count to 8.

  5. Repeat 4 to 8 times or until you feel calm.

  6. Notice how you feel | Repeat as necessary

5. SELF CARE

Take the time to dedicate to yourself! Whether it’s doing one of the things listed above or simply taking a nap when you have the extra time because it is what your body craves - listen to your intuition and take the time necessary for rest and recovery!

Float Therapy Tips


1. Drop all Expectations
First time floaters have all sorts of expectations which can lead to disappointment in themselves or the experience surrounding the First Float. We highly recommend that you go into your Float without expectations, allow yourself to be open to all experiences. 

Taking the time in space to be present with yourself ; Body | Mind | Soul. 

Why can this help?  Meditating or the idea of personal stillness can be downright challenging for some of us, and placing the expectation that you'll have no thoughts or that you'll be able to quiet that busy mind of yours for 90 minutes straight on the first try is not important to your experience in a Float pod. Float Therapy is a practice just like anything else you implement into your routine/lifestyle - the more you allow yourself to do it the easier and more routine it becomes for you.

[Every Float creates a different space for awareness and perception]

2.  R E L A X
Yes it sounds funny to say it out loud, but mentally preparing yourself to relax helps create a more intentional float experience!

Try taking a few minutes before your float to transition - honor the space you are presently and focus on what you hope to feel or perceive afterwards.  Create a small ritual of picking an Art of Attention card from our lobby, close your eyes and do some deep breathing, or simply repeat a mantra to yourself while you're showering off before your float.

 "I am safe and content, creating this time for me to just be " is one simple idea you could roll with or simply focus on 1 word that keeps you inspired/connected!
