switch off & reconnect – mud face

As part of our new “switch off & reconnect” endeavour, Bean & I turned off our computers & had a little bonding session one night last week. No, it’s not going to be TMI, I promise!

We shut our computers, then I made a clay face masque* & we sat together with brown mud drying on our faces, trying not to talk or grin too much lest the clay crack & crumble off our faces. When the clay was dry we washed it off & gave each other relaxing aromatherapy massages, then drank tea!

I highly recommend trying something similar with your partner if you have one. It was a fabulous way to connect!

The camera was set to take 10 photos in quick succession, these expressions were accompanied by the following conversation,

“Bean, how many photos is that thing taking?”

“I don’t know, it’s quite a lot, isn’t it?”


What do you do to switch off & reconnect with yourself & people you love?


*this masque was made with:
2 Tbs pink French clay
2 Tbs yellow French clay
1 Tbs almond oil
2 Tbs liquorice, lemongrass & fennel tea
2 drops clary sage oil
2 drops lavender oil

    My partner and I have been so disconnected as of late that any little thing is a good way to switch off and reconnect! We had a date this week where we saw a movie and then had dinner and coffee at a local coffee shop. We brought some card games that belong to the kids so that we could teach ourselves how to play the games. I wish we had more time alone together. We are getting there. 🙂

      I imagine you’ve all been in survival mode for a while really, it’s easy to become disconnected when life throws you some serious stress & worry. I hope you’re able to find more meaningful ways to reconnect, it’s good fun just hanging out with a partner I think 🙂
