We live in a world where being busy is seen as a sign of success, but is it really? More often than not, a busy mind leads to stress, overwhelm, and unhappiness. But what if we told you there’s a way to break free from the chaos and find inner peace? Enter the world of mindfulness and floating.
What is the difference between a Mindful mind and a Mind Full mind?
A Mind Full mind is cluttered, stressful, and unproductive, whereas a Mindful mind is calm, focused, and at peace. The main difference between the two is that a Mind Full mind is always looking to the future, adding to your to-do list and never really checking anything off. A Mindful mind, on the other hand, lives in the present moment, savouring each experience and taking in everything that life has to offer.
Why is a Mind Full mind unhealthy?
A busy person is often seen as a high achiever, but the truth is often quite different. If we took a closer look at the busybody’s life, would we see true accomplishment or just a list of empty tasks? All too often, being busy leads to feelings of discontentment and the urge to fill up one’s plate even more, causing even more chaos in the mind. The reasons for this behaviour are fear, lack of awareness, and self-doubt.
Fear is an illusion, it’s not a real thing, but a feeling or thought. When we believe that taking time to slow down is missing out on something greater, we are fearing the loss of an unknown. But, by stopping to smell the roses, we delight our senses, increase our happiness and gratitude, and find joy in the present moment.
Lack of self-awareness is another reason why people may struggle with mindfulness. For those who are unfamiliar with mindfulness, it may seem like a foreign concept, something that only “buddha-types” can do. But the truth is, mindfulness is available to anyone at any time.
Self-doubt is the final reason why some people may not embrace mindfulness. They may believe that mindfulness is only for those who are less busy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Mindfulness is for everyone and can be a powerful tool for transforming your life.
How floating can help with mindfulness
Mindfulness is not always easy to practice, but with the help of floating, it becomes much more accessible. Floating at Recharge Lab creates a relaxing environment where it’s easier to let go of external stimuli and focus inward. This peaceful state makes it easier to develop awareness, sustain attention, and respond to situations with more choice.
In a float tank, the environment is designed to help you relax and find a meditative state. By removing all external distractions, you can more easily practice different aspects of meditation, including interoception (sensing internal processes in the body), attention-regulation (directing your attention without being distracted), and self-regulation (determining your physical response to a stressful environment).
Whether you’re a seasoned meditator or just starting out, floating at Recharge Lab can help you find your inner peace and recharge your mind and body. So, why wait?
Take the first step to a calmer, more mindful life and book your float at Recharge Lab today. Let us help you find your inner peace and recharge your overall well-being
