This week we have been through the hurriedness of preparing our properties for Irma, the shortage of necessary supplies, the uncertainty of her direction, and then the mental stress of riding the storm out and worrying about loved ones who are doing the same. Now we are all engaged in the work of clean up.

Remember to take time to recharge, relieve the muscle aches, lower your stress levels.  If you’re not able to keep up your float routine this month, try these things.

  • Practice meditation at home. Find a comfortable place to sit, close your eyes and take some deep breaths, focus on your breathe and stay in the moment.  Breathe in fresh air and exhale the worries that pop in your head.
  • Take an Epsom salt bath at home. It’s not the same as floating, but it will provide some relief from muscle aches and back pain. Use this time alone to focus on your breathing, and push the worrying chatter aside.
  • Don’t get caught up in a loop of anxiety. Break the chain of worry by thinking of a happy occasion, someone you love, an activity that brings you joy. The rut of worry is exhausting.  Controlling your thoughts will aid in reaching the outcomes you desire.
  • If you are able to break away, even for a short float, do it. Recharging will adjust your mindset and make tackling the tough moments easier. We will be back in full operation Tuesday afternoon.

A young friend told me recently that things are always working out, always moving forward towards whats supposed to be.  Sometimes all you have to do is step back to change your perspective.  Woosah. We hope you all safe and moving towards whats supposed to be.
