On Thursday of last week I decided to try a sensory deprivation tank AKA float tank. I follow quite a few individuals who have spoken pretty highly of the experience.
The sensory deprivation tank is a temperature-regulated, salt-water filled, soundproof, lightproof tank that can isolate its occupant from numerous forms of sensory input...
It's been a rough couple of days.
This started by waking up on Monday morning wanting to sleep in. So I didn't get up.
