#whywefloat – from Float Ambassador, Laura Simpson

There is one common thing that prevents me from being happy, being successful, feeling love fully – all of the good things in life: a lack of stillness. When I think about being still, I remember being 12 years old, high up in a tree, watching the world go on below me and feeling invisible…

What Happens if I Fall Asleep During my Float?

Have you ever floated and caught yourself nodding off, so close to sleeping that your body twitches and startles you?

Why I do What I do: Maggie, Physiotherapist
