When floating, we can experience thoughts in a similar way as we might during meditation. Floating also develops the brain in a way that makes meditation easier.
Regularly practicing mindfulness can be difficult, but holds many benefits. Floating creates an environment that simply makes mindfulness easier.
A meditative state is brought about more easily due to the relaxation you’ll feel when floating.
By removing external stimuli in a relaxing environment, floating makes it easier to practice different aspects of meditation, including:
Interoception: sensing internal processes in the body
Attention-regulation: directing our attention somewhere without being distracted
Self-regulation: determining our physical response to a stressful environment
So, whether you’re a keen meditator, or struggling to sustain a practice, floating can help you develop your awareness, sustain your attention, and respond to situations with more choice.
