Our very own Becca is the first of a few people who will be floating EVERY DAY for 30 DAYS! Below is post #1. WE are excited to keep this updated!
Greetings, Earthlings! I am Becca, and I am floating every day for 30 days. Throughout this journey, I will be updating you on the effects I feel from floating, and how it is affecting my daily life.
I would like to start out by saying that I am so grateful for this opportunity, and that floating once a month or so has already had a huge impact on my life. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Depersonalization/Derealization Disorder all in 2016. The thought of being in a sensory deprivation tank used to be one of my BIGGEST fears because the last thing I wanted to do was to be left alone with my brain. However, this summer I had worked on my meditation practice, which lead me to gain confidence to schedule my first float in August. Since then, I have grown a passion for floating. It has, along with meditation and yoga, for the most part pretty much healed my symptoms of panic disorder, and more! Never say never!
Since I began floating once a day, I have been waking up every morning immediately in a great mood. I find myself smiling in contentment throughout the day, as well. I notice that the longer that I have been doing it, the more random, happy moments I am getting of absolute gratitude for the simplest things. I am also MUCH calmer, to say the least. I pretty much feel no symptoms of my GAD. I am much more grounded than usual. This is causing my to feel NO symptoms of my Depersonalization/Derealization Disorder.
Overall, regarding my mind, I feel as though I am in a light meditative state throughout the day. I feel very much in control of my contentment and calmness.
-Physically, I feel no soreness/pain in any of my muscles. I feel at my best physical self.
-Energy-wise, I have been waking up every day ready to start my responsibilities, which is not like me at all (I am not a morning person at all.)
-For sleeping, I am getting much more restful sleeps with waking up throughout the night at most once. (I normally have restless sleeps with multiple waking occurrences). I am also falling asleep much faster. (Since I was a child, it would always take me hours to fall asleep. Now it's been down to 15 minutes or so).
