Thank you for joining me with the Bad Leadership Styles series. I know as a leader, I have been all of these at one point or another. Recognizing it and realizing there are going to be bad days and we are going to mess up.
Breathe, pause, pray about it, then regroup and apologize when needed. Forgive and let go.
Mistakes and bad experiences help us grow to become better leaders. My intention for this series is to give you insight and wisdom on your own personal leadership journey.

One of my friends told me about floating a couple of years ago and how it can help relieve stress. I tried it out and really saw the change in my body after the float. I wish I did it more often and I am guilty of not making it a priority when I really should. I usually wait until my body is in knots instead of a monthly or every other week schedule. I went a few days ago and after the float, I was sitting in the relaxing area talking to one of the employees and said to her I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner, it sure does make a difference. She laughed and said she automatically schedules her times because if she doesn’t it won’t happen. I said, the world would be a happier place if everyone would float more and relax. She smiled. I commented back, I probably should do automatic scheduling too and make it more of a priority in my life. After the float, I felt so refreshed, renewed and at peace. My skin felt soft and my muscles much more relaxed.
What is floating?
It is laying down (floating) in a tub or pod of epsom salt water with ear plugs in your ears.
One hour of resting the mind in the salt has all kinds of physical benefits:
*Increases Blood Circulation
*Increased Immune System Functioning
*Diminishes the Effect of Jet Lag
*Reduce Lactic Acid Build-Up
What to do while floating?
*Breathing Techniques to Relax
*Spend Time in Prayer
*Listen to the Calming Music
*Do Nothing, just Enjoy the Peace, Quiet and Alone Time
Different ways to enjoy the experience:
*Relaxing music on
*Relaxing music off
I personally like the music on with the lid closed and the blue lights on, however sometimes I turn the lights off.
For me the experience is relaxing and helps me get balanced. It calms my spirit and releases the build-up of stress in my body by spending time alone through meditation, silence and prayer. I know I should do it more often before my body turns into knots. My personal goal is to start floating at least once a month. How about you? Is this something you would be willing to try?
Do you like spending time alone?
Have you ever tried floating? Yes or No
If you have, what was your experience?Did youLike it or Not Liked it and why?
