Go and catch the movie that you’ve been wanting to watch but none of your other friends wants to. Indulge yourself with popcorn and a fizzy drink without having to share. Laugh out loud at funny scenes without being judge. This can be really therapeutic!

Looking for an extraordinary experience? Floatation frees your mind from distraction and your body from gravity. Unplug from the world and your senses by submerging yourself in a sensory deprivation pod. Each pod is filled with clean water and 600kg of Epsom salt to make it extremely buoyant. Floating can help you relieve stress quickly and gain mental clarity. Take your time easing into the calm and restorative atmosphere the experience offers!

No matter how much stress you faced in daily life, it all just slips away when you lose yourself in a great story. Chilling with a good book is one of the best ways to spend some quality me-time. A well-written novel can transport you to other realms, while an engaging article will provide some distraction in the present moment, letting tensions drain away and allowing you to relax.

Mark some time off in your day planner or calendar for spending alone with yourself. It doesn’t have to be long. Any time that you can spend alone with yourself to reboot, relax, and think deeply is better than none. Enjoy the time you have alone!
