How one easy tweak will lighten your load (effortlessly reducing stress and increasing productivity) Stress and anxiety are so abundant in our culture that it is accepted as a normal part of life. The hardest part is figuring out how to slow down and unwind when time is of the essence. I love the glass of water story. Here it is: A professor was giving a lecture to his students on stress management. He raised a glass of water and asked the class, “How heavy do you think this glass of water is?” The students’ answers ranged from 1 lb to 10 lbs. The professor went on to explain that the exact weight did not matter: rather, how long you held it. If you held it for a minute, it was OK. If you held it for an hour, your arm would ache. If you held it for a day, you would have to call an ambulance. It was the exact same weight, but the longer you choose to hold it, the heavier it became. If we consistently carry around our burdens, sooner or later, we will not be able to carry on. Periodically, it becomes necessary to assess our burden and put it down from time to time so we can reset. Floating treatment or float tank therapy is an easy approach that not only allows effortless relaxation, but also scientifically shown to reduce cortisol (a stress hormone), increase creativity and learning, and reduce pain. Float therapy works by taking advantage of reducing outside stimulation (aka sensory deprivation), combined with a saturated salt-water blend. This combination allows you to effortlessly float on top of 10” of water while you escape from looming deadlines, non-stop emails or your harsh “inner critic”. You soon discover that not only will your productivity increase, your happiness levels will too. NEW TO FLOATING? Download our free E-book on 7 TIPS TO HAVE A PERFECT FLOAT at
