Ever had writers blank page syndrome, musicians block, or just a general hard time being creative?
Floating may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Recent studies by the University of British Columbia and other colleges, have concluded that floating in an isolation pod filled with water and Epsom salt boosts creative thinking. People tested showed a 50% increase in the ability to produce new ideas.
An answer to your creative problem.
Floating can boost your ability to brainstorm, write stories, and even produce music. The musical legend Peter Gabriel said, “[My isolation tank] was quite useful, in the sense that you could get into a dream state, and I think that did allow…different thoughts and pictures to come through.”
Popular Comedian and MMA host Joe Rogan stated, “The sensory deprivation chamber is the most important tool I’ve ever used for developing my mind, for thinking, for evolving.”
Matt Stangel of the Portland Mercury reported that after floating, “I began to write creatively for the first time in months, but with an uninhibited ease that I haven’t experienced in almost five years. In short, I was astounded by the changes I saw in myself.”
Try floating for yourself.
I personally floated for the first time recently. It was one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had. As a writer, editor, and general content creator myself, I’m always looking for inspiration. I need as much creativity as I can get! So whether I find it in the shower, on a morning run, or in an i-sopod filled with 300 gallons of water and 1100 lbs of the purest Epsom salt I’m going to take it.
Dr. Sigmund Freud, neuroscientists Ullrich Wagner, and Professor Deirdre Barrett of Harvard Medical School have all stated that creativity is linked to rest. Resting and relaxing boosts the brains ability to think, create, and problem solve. I am going to throw my hat into the ring and agree with them.
