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!
