Are you ready to go back to school—or to dig back into work? Does your fall game plan include time for self care and wellness? If not, it should!
Even if you aren’t a student or don’t have kids or any connection to school, the entire city of Toronto experiences a shift in September. Traffic increases, the TTC is more crowded, business expectations increase, and the entire city just becomes that much more intense. With so much frenzy in this city, you need to find an outlet for self care if you want to nurture your mental health, not to mention physical wellness.
It really doesn’t matter how old you get, the beginning of September just has that back to school feeling. It’s like it’s hardwired into us. Labour Day feels like the closing of one door and the opening of another; a time of new beginnings, renewed discipline, and the return of work and school pressure!
Hopefully, you’ve had a chance to relax this summer because most people’s busiest time of year has arrived. If you aren’t making self care and wellness a priority, stress can wear on both your mental and physical health. You need to take care of yourself, but unfortunately, self care in Toronto isn’t always natural. There’s so much going on, with noise, deadlines, traffic, and never-ending work or schoolwork. What you need is an opportunity to relax; a Toronto wellness centre where you can de-stress and practice self care. Visiting Vital Float Centre in the historic Toronto Distillery District of Toronto could change your entire season!
Just because you’re beyond your school days doesn’t mean that you should ignore the pressures of the back to school season. Teachers certainly feel the back to school pressure; those first few months of classes can feel particularly intense. But they aren’t the only ones…
Parents often feel relieved when their kids get back to school in the fall. It can be a relief to get “back to normal” again! Many parents experience some leniency at work during July and August but now it’s time for a deeper work focus. Not only will you be expected to work harder during your 9-5 (or other working hours), but you also have more responsibility to mobilize your household. Between managing your kids’ after school programs, monitoring homework, packing lunches, and getting everyone out to door each morning, after just a few days, you might be completely exhausted!
The first few weeks back to school can be crazy. You’re meeting so many new people, new teachers, and trying to absorb all of your new classes. If you’re a Toronto student, you might have moved into a new dorm, or maybe even your first apartment. Going back to school is all about change, and change can be super stressful until you get a handle on it.
Unfortunately, when most students pile on the stress, they forget about self-care. They often start eating way too much junk food and stop exercising, putting on the dreaded freshman 15. There never seems to be enough time, so they spend it either studying in front of the computer for hours on end or catching letting loose with friends. Sometimes that turns into partying way, way too hard, paying for it the morning after.
Making time for wellness in Toronto can be difficult, especially when you’re a student. Luckily, there’s a convenient way to unlock self care for you and transform your school year. Floating is a way to completely depressurize your life, giving you a chance to let go of being a student and instead just genuinely… be. If you want to shift this school year’s paradigm, start floating with us at Vital Float!
Do you ever wish you could just shut the door to the world and exist pressure-free for an hour? And when your muscles are aching from bad computer posture and way too much sitting, wouldn’t it feel amazing to release yourself from the pull of gravity? That’s what floating in Toronto is all about.
Floating is the process of entering a private cabin and lying down in a tub that contains a saturated solution of healing Epsom salts. Because of the salt content, you’re able to float effortlessly in a state of deep relaxation. Music and lighting are optional. When you’re floating, everything feels like it falls away. The pressure that’s constantly put on your body, muscles, and joints vanishes, allowing you to relax more fully than ever before.
Here are just a few of the significant benefits that can come from floating in Toronto:
Everyone’s experience is different, but one thing that’s always the same is the sense of freedom and relief that comes from a relaxing hour while escaping the weight of gravity.
If you’re looking for something fun to do in Toronto this weekend to take your mind off school, you could go floating together with friends. Though each of you you will be alone in your individual floating cabin, floating will give you loads to talk about afterwards! You could make a day of it, floating first and then visiting some of the fantastic coffee shops, cafes, and galleries in the Distillery District afterward. It’s like the perfect staycation right in the city, and a great way to manage your self care in Toronto this school year.
Whether you’re just curious, looking to get rid of stress, wanting to find relief from a long-standing health condition, or just like the idea of floating in darkness and silence for a while, Vital Float offers a unique and often life-changing opportunity. Going back to school is all about trying new things, so why not come to Vital Float and give floating a try. You might find an oasis from the pressures of being a student (or an adult) that you’ve always wanted!
