School and college is stressful. Studying, research, projects, and tests can leave secondary and post-secondary students feeling drained and mentally foggy. Instead of turning to all-nighters and insane amounts of caffeine, many modern students prefer holistic brain-boosting therapies including meditation, yoga, and floating. And for good reason – these practices help calm mind and body, while helping regulate sleep and achieve mental clarity. If you’re feeling run down from the school year, here’s the argument for ditching the 3 a.m. pizza and scheduling a float session, instead.

HOW CAN FLOATATION THERAPY HELP IN PREVENTIVE HEALTH CARE- BODY

Image
Floatation therapy is a truly unique experience where we lay still with no contact points, no movement, and no postural muscle action. When you’re free from gravity, your body has a chance to rest and recover up to 4 times faster than regular bed rest. This reduces blood pressure and oxygen intake, as well as, increases blood flow and distribution of red blood cells. The combined effects aid in flushing lactate, cortisone, and adrenaline that may have built up during exercise.In addition your cortisol levels drop while endorphins and dopamine secretion increases making you feel good with mood elevation. Floatation therapy also helps loosen the muscles and give athletes a greater degree of control over their nervous systems. This reduces the risk of injury, accelerates the recovery process, and releases vast quantities of endorphins.

HOW SILENCE CAN HEAL YOUR BODY AND MIND

Image
The Proof that Noise Hurts and Silence Heals
We all value silence and how integral it is to our daily lives. Silence is comforting, nourishing and cosy. It opens us up to inspiration, and nurtures the mind, body and soul. Meanwhile, the madness of the noisy world is drowning out our creativity, our inner connection and hampering our resilience. Science is now showing that silence may be just what we need to regenerate our exhausted brains and bodies. Studies show that noise has a powerful physical effect on our brains, causing elevated levels of stress hormones. Sound travels to the brain as electrical signals via the ear. Even when we are sleeping these sound waves cause the body to react and activate the amygdala, the part of the brain associated with memory and emotion, leading to the release of stress hormones. So, living in a consistently noisy environment will cause you to experience extremely high levels of these harmful hormones. Interestingly, the word noise is said to come …

A digital detox is where you power off your electronic devices and spend some time away from them.
