Today is World Mental Health Day.
I came across this quote while working on the Farm State of Mind campaign with Acceleron. And I think it’s something we need to repeat.
So often the farm comes before everything else, including the physical and mental health of farmers. We skip meals, vacation, self-care, family activities, and sleep because the farm needs attention. Sometimes that’s necessary during crunch times. But when we make that choice over and over again, it becomes a problem.
So do a little self-evaluation today. Are you taking time to make sure you’re healthy? Or does a healthy farm always come first?
