Stress makes you sick. I am extremely adverse to the culture of managing chronic stress by 'pushing through' difficulties and hardship. I've felt what it is like to push yourself to the absolute physical and emotional limit when caring for the needs of others, while utterly neglecting yourself. I've seen someone I love pay the ultimate price for the relentless and chronic stress of high-level career 'progression'. This kind of 'living' is damaging emotionally and physically, and has psychoneuroimmunological consequences. Our nervous and immune systems are not equipped to be relentlessly hammered. Something has to give in the end, and the ultimate price is your good health and wellbeing. Our immune system is not a 'stand-alone' and autonomous part of our functioning body - our brain is speaking consistently and eloquently to the cells of our immune system and vice versa. It is a psychological and physical 'dance' that causes measurable physical changes. Be mindful of your neuro/brain-immune loop!! Realise stress is actually another form of infection in your body, and take action to make change or 'hacks' in your life if needed 💕🌿
hey wild things🌾

Flowers in the desert. A couple of months ago I posted a photo of these flowers in spring. I thought they had died off now it is summer. After a couple of thunderstorms they have sprung to life again. Amazing sights in the desert. #greatvictoriadesert#wildflowers#pink
I’m impatient for my poppy field to bloom. Currently it’s a million tiny volunteers. I’ll try to thin it as much as I can but I hate pulling my poppies even when it’s for the best. If you’re a poppy lover, see @poppyoftheday for my daily beauty.

Two of three hippeastrum are in full bloom. They are often referred to as amaryllis but that is incorrect. Now is a great time to load up on these bulbs on clearance at big box garden centers. If a bud is emerging, you’re in luck! If foliage only is emerging, then it won’t likely bloom this year. When these bulbs finish blooming, I’ll keep them outside with the rest of my hippeastrum. My outdoor bulbs will bloom in April or May.

happy friday loves! 🌻✨ looking forward to a cosy weekend, have you got any plans?
Living in rhythm with the seasons. Watching the ebb & flow of the apothecary jars filling up and emptying out again. Feeling gratitude to do slow work, remembering old ways that have been forgotten 🍃 📷 @themackenzielife
