Harvest is around the corner...manage your stress well. - Elaine Froese | Canada’s Farm Whisperer | Your go-to expert for farm families who want better communication and conflict resolution to secure a successful farm transition


Harvest is around the corner…manage your stress well.

by | Aug 1, 2015 | Uncategorized

On our farm we may be combining rye on August 3rd. The combines have new filters and have been serviced for the busy season ahead. Our bodies are not machines, so my question is “What are you doing to get your body, mind and spirit ready for harvest?
I plan to stock the freezer with ready to go meals, since there is a good chance I’ll be called for field duty. I work on getting good rest, and am using my swimming pass pool as much as possible.
Many folks in Saskatchewan and Alberta aren’t too excited about harvest 2015 since the drought has stolen yields, and that creates a different kind of stress that needs to be managed. If this is your situation, make sure you have the farm stress line number handy, or a close friend you can call for support.
Have a safe harvest season.
