Want to make the most of your float? Whether it’s your first time floating or you’re a seasoned regular, we want to help improve your experience. Here are some great tips to keep in mind for your next visit to a sensory deprivation tank in Jacksonville.
Avoid fluids and caffeine before your session.
Don’t drink anything for a couple of hours before you float, and be sure to use the restroom right before you enter the sensory deprivation tank. It’s also a good idea to avoid caffeine before floating. Having a full bladder or being overstimulated from caffeine will distract from your flotation experience.
Prepare for your float session by relaxing.
Try spending about 10 minutes or so relaxing before you enter the tank. Turn your phone on airplane mode and leave the outside world behind. You can do some deep breathing or simply rest with your eyes closed, but being relaxed before you begin your float will set the tone so that you can make the most out of your session in a sensory deprivation tank in Jacksonville.
Don’t overthink it.
Try to enter your float session without too many expectations. No two floats are the same, and worrying about whether or not you’ll meditate or wondering how much time is left in your session will only take away from your experience. It’s ok to let your thoughts flow. If you find it difficult to unwind, try focusing on your breathing or asking for some light music to be turned on during your session.
Avoid touching your face and keep a towel handy.
We know it’s easier said than done, but avoid touching your face while you’re floating. If you can, you’ll have a better chance of keeping salt from burning your eyes, ears and nose. Just in case you can’t resist, keep a towel within reach while you’re in the tank.
Though you should avoid drinks for a couple of hours before you float, make sure you remain fully hydrated in the days leading up to your session. You’ll also want to have plenty of fluids following your session. The high concentration of salt and magnesium can dehydrate you, so it’s important to drink plenty of water after a float.
Keep the relaxation going after your float.
Try to keep your schedule clear after your float. A trip to a sensory deprivation tank in Jacksonville can offer some much-needed relaxation, but rushing back to appointments or work can jolt you out of your experience. It’s much better to take some time after your session to reflect on your experience. Make a cup of tea or take a walk on the beach to remain in a peaceful state of mind.
