While it is not mandatory to avoid caffeine before you float, we strongly recommend it. Caffeine can make it more difficult for you to relax your mind and let go.
Eat a Light Meal
It is best to follow the middle way with food and drink prior to floating. Eat a light meal or a snack about an hour before your appointment, and don't drink too much liquid.
Come in Relaxed
You will be stepping down from a busy to a deeply relaxed state of mind, and it is best to do this gradually. Doing some relaxation exercises before you float will greatly improve your experience in the tank.
Silence Your Phone
This is your chance to be completely without distractions. You will probably not be able to hear it, but silence your phone just in case.
Ask Your Doctor
If you have a pacemaker, epilepsy, eczema, or if you have any other medical conditions and are unsure if floating is right for you, ask your doctor what is best.
It's important to remember that this is your experience, and that there is no wrong way to float. Explore the infinite possibilities of your mind!
