Keep On Swiping

I was sweating and my thumbs were aching.  I couldn’t stop swiping.  It was like a horrible addiction.  I couldn’t kick that dirty bitch Tinder.  I kept telling myself to close the app.  But then I had to see who would pop up next; maybe she would be the one I needed to swipe right for.

Dating has become game.  I mean that literally not figuratively.  Swiping left or right decides the fate of who you may or may not date.  I started making games to see how many times I could swipe left before I would shut the app.  Or I would tell myself That I had to swipe right at least once for every ten girls profiles I saw.

Tinder became more about how many people I matched with rather than who the person was.  I never read their profiles.  I only based my decisions off of their pictures and physical attraction. (more…)

What I Learned Inside A Dark, Wet Box

I’m terribly claustrophobic and the thought of closing myself in that box made me nauseous.  I’ve wanted to try a sensory deprivation float for months. Today I decided to make it happen.

For the last two weeks I’ve been struggling with back and shoulder pain as well as lack of focus and energy.  From what I’ve read, floating could help alleviate some of my issues.  Studies have shown the benefits to be:

  • mood enhancement
  • mental concentration
  • higher energy levels
  • better sleep
  • stress reduction
  • pain relief
  • increased muscle recovery

I took some magnesium an hour before my appointment to calm my mind and help with anxiety.  But when I saw the tank I was sure I was going to have a panic attack if I closed the hatch while I was inside.    I figured turning the lights off would make it dark enough for me. (more…)
