I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Learning to float is my blog as I explore how I can get better. I hope my exploration will interest and perhaps even help you too. My theory is if we learn to float, we may improve our mental wellbeing, aiding recovery from depression and anxiety and perhap even preventing some people decending into mental illness.

Why floating?

In Claire Weekes book, ‘Self Help for your Nerves’ , she mentions floating and describes a woman suffering from agrophobia, who having discovered how to ‘float’ floated out of her house, to the shop and back and continued to ‘float’. This is where I’ve drawn the idea of floating from, and yet I don’t feel this is a unique reference and I seek to explore this further.
