Should you float when Sick with a Head Cold

Should you float when sick with a Cold?

My name is Ben, and I have dubbed myself as a ‘Float Guide’.  I work at Float Life on the Gold Coast and float semi-frequently. A little under a week ago I found my self preparing for a float as usual, only this time I was feeling a little sick. Nose and ears feeling more blocked than Brisbane traffic at 5pm. Sharp pains surging from the inside of my head and I wondered “Is this really a good idea?”. With floating in a sensory deprivation tank proven to help with nearly everything which ails you,  I set sail on my journey.

I quickly settled into my preferred tank and immediately focused on my breathing. Surprising how my sinus cleared and I was able to breath again through my nose. I hadn’t been able to all day but I guess positioned on my back breathing in the salty humid air did the trick. The more I breathed the more relaxed I was feeling. My headache stopped banging away, began to leave my body.

When my time was up, I exited the tank and poured myself a nice glass of Lemon Myrtle tea. Instantly I am feeling more energised, positive and ready to get on with the day. No longer blocked up, lethargic and longing for bed. It amazes me every time how an hour floating alleviates my fatigue.

Seeing in High Def

What came next completely blew me away. Many of you experienced floaters will relate. My transition lounging in the Retreat of the centre to outside into the world, was like I had been seeing the world through VHS all my life but now I see in High Definition.

Overall floating while sick worked really well for me. It made me see things a lot more clearly and definitely gave the positive energy I needed to get well again.

Why Do People Float? The Joe Rogan Factor

Because Joe Rogan Says so!

Why do people float? Of course there are literally as many different specific reasons as there are people, but there are some broad general groups of people: like athletes and general gym goers, artistic professionals, pregnant women, people with fibromyalgia and a plethora of other types of chronic pain, people who just want to try out and experience new things, people with anxiety and stress, people who do yoga, people who get dragged along by a friend, people who just want an hour to themselves, people who want to unlock unconscious thoughts, ideas or memories. Most people I think fit into more than one group or are on the fringes of any one group and I am not surprised by the appeal of floating for any group.
