Ep. 59 | How Floating Can Change Your Life with Shane Stott
Shane Stott is CEO of Walker Tape Co, and the co-founder of Zen Float Co as well as best -selling Author of the Float Tank Cure. He’s an inventor at heart and has revolutionized both of his industries, being featured on ABC, MSN, The New York Times and Yahoo.
In this episode, I really wanted to find the uttermost expert on floating, or what some people call sensory deprivation. This practice of isolation to increase mental, physical and emotional bandwidth by reducing the stimulus of life has exploded in popularity, and I’m a huge fan of it.
To date, I’ve spent around 45 hours in a tank and without a doubt I can say it has had a massive impact on my physical, mental and emotional growth as well as integration in life’s opportunities and challenges.
Furthermore, disconnecting in a hyper-connected world is crucial and allows us to create more space for reflection, asking deeper questions and knowing we’re on our life’s purpose.
I’m absolutely convinced the #1 trait from someone who makes it or doesn’t is simply endurance.
