Here is a link to a great article I found on floating.

Float Tank Primer

There is a good bit of information there, including tips.

He goes over the different tank styles and what it should cost.  Definitely worth taking a look at.

As for myself, I going to float again soon.  This time I’ll try the open tank again.  Last time I was a bit turned-off at it first.  But I think can appreciate it better this time.

My lower back pain is getting worse from sitting more at the office.  Floating actually relieves the pain.  Which I didn’t really start floating for that purpose.  Initially, I didn’t consider pain relief as a reason for floating until I actually noticing the affects.  It turns out that a large number of floaters do just that.  They float for pain relief.

I heard a story of a guy who had 24/7 back pain for 8 years.  He goes to a new float center his friend opened.  Instantly, his pain is relieved.  He was shocked.  His wife was shocked.  For the first time in 8 years he wasn’t experiencing pain.

At that moment, they all were convinced that floating was a true Therapy that could help people.  And I feel the same way.  My state needs a more accessible Float Center.  I intend to be the one to bring it here and spread it in the South.

My experience dealing with the initial phase of starting up a business is proving to be challenging.  Not that the process itself is hard, its just my emotions involved with it are on a roller coaster ride.

One day I’m pumped and committed about it.  I know exactly what I want and need to do.

The next day I’m discouraged and disappointed that I cant DO anything just yet.  And a nugget of self-doubt grows into fear and anxiety.  Not over the idea of “can I do it”, but instead “Should I do it”.

But inevitably I come to the same conclusion each time.  I want to do this.  I need to do this.  I can do this.  I just have to persevere.

I am getting better at recognizing the waves of emotions I have with this.  Ironically, floating helps calm and center my mind on why I’m doing this in the first place.

I’m going to maximize my float experiences from now on.  I’m going to use the time and experience to fuel my cause.  I intend on being an expert on floating in the coming year.
