You’ve worked so hard to get your student to college, and now that they’re there you want them to succeed! Meaning they get good grades, pass all of their tests, graduate the top of their class, and land a great job so they can finally support themselves.
But college now is very different from how it use to be. Cost has increased and most college students have to take out loans and pick up a few extra jobs to pay bills. Expectations have also risen — if you are caught slacking, there is someone else out there doing more. Because of this, teachers and employers expect more from students.
With the pressures of making enough money to live, making grades and participating in all of the “optional” extra curricular activities, it is easy to see how college can be an overwhelming and stressful time for your child. It leaves little time for your student to actually focus on homework and studying. But, what if we told you there was a solution to this problem? What if there was something that would help your college student de-stress, focus and perform better at school?
But, what if we told you there was a solution to this problem? What if there was something that would help your college student de-stress, focus and perform better at school?
Well, there is, and that solution is floating. Floating is a deep meditative experience that happens inside a sensory deprivation tank. You simply lie in a pod full of body temperature, salt-water that allows no light or sound to enter. It reduces external stimuli, allowing your mind and body to fully relax and rejuvenate.
When you are in a float tank, there is nothing there to distract you. You have no choice but to be in the present moment. Allowing your mind to fully relax comes with a number of benefits and teaches your brain to work smarter, not harder. Here are four reasons why your college student needs a float tank:
- Improves students grade performance
As you read above, floating has many benefits. Floating for one hour and allowing your mind to fully relax + restore before a big test will do a lot more than cramming. Specifically, floating Increases your ability to focus and concentrate, boosts creativity, provides mental clarity, helps short-term memory and improves problem-solving skills. Not to mention, taking anywhere from 4 to 10+ years to complete, college can be very taxing on a student’s stress levels and emotional strength. Giving your student this tool will help them live a much more stress free life, helping them to stay motivated and dedicated throughout the years.
Creates Good Habits
As college is there to increase your students IQ, floating is there to increase a person’s “EQ” (emotional intelligence). Emotional intelligence affects how we manage our own behavior and emotions, how we interact with others, and how we make decisions. College students have a lot of social pressures to engage in potentially risky behavior that distracts from study and school time. The more you float, the more emotionally intelligent you become through deep meditative experiences. People with higher emotional intelligence create better habits, make more positive decisions and are more likely to be successful. So allowing you student to have full-time access to a float tank will improve their study habits and help them create good habits for life.
Floating has cumulative effects. The more you do it, the better it is — sort of like going to the gym. However, floating at a spa is extremely expensive, and with the cost of school now-a-days, spending an extra $80 a week on floating is very unreasonable. If you buy a float tank you will be saving money in the long-run.To go to a float center once a week for a year it would cost anywhere from $3,900 - $7,800. So purchasing a tent can be a big upfront cost, but not to worry. This is the reason Zen Float Co.’s owners have invested thousands of dollars and years of engineering + testing our at home Float Tank, to ensure you get a high-quality and long lasting product. It is also the most affordable solution to floating, and we take it one step further by offering an amazing financing deal. Lastly, if your student performs well in college, the likelihood of them landing a higher-paying job increases. The money they will earn over a lifetime is exponential and will quickly pay for the float tank.
They can access it at any time
Scheduling at a float center can also be difficult because most of the time you have to plan about two-weeks out. But, we all know college students are the kings of procrastination and odds are they wouldn’t have scheduled a float right before their big test. Having one at their own convenience means they can float whenever they want, without worrying about scheduling an appointment around big projects, tests and finals. Not only is this a gift your student, but it would also be a good practice for you and a great excuse to go visit!
