    ASOM - Ep 144 - Post Vacation Contemplation

    ASOM - Ep 144 - Post Vacation Contemplation

    Guess who's back! It's me. Sorry for the long abscence in recording. I made myself a promise when I started the podcast that it would not interfere with the other things in my life. These past two weeks I've had to put my money where my mouth was. The fair and family vacation was more important than podcasting. We returned from vacation yesterday and I was back to normal today. It made me reflect on how important vacations are for the sustainability of our operation. That without breaks, we begin to spin ourselves in circles. That we are running a poor business if we cannot set it down for a bit.

    ASOM - Ep 143 - Taking Time and Keeping Space For Peace

    Over the past week, I've become really intentional about leaving time and space for quiet and still. I feel like I have become where I always need some sort of stimulation. Keri helped me see that leaving space and quiet time in my day is essential to being my best self. I share a bit about that here today.

    ASOM - Ep 142 - Debbie DeSpain - Mindfulness

    Happy Independence Day. This weekend I had the fortune to set down with Debby DeSpain and chat about mindfulness. We talked about how she came across my article in Progressive Cattleman by accident, but decided she needed to reach out anyway. We chat about how busy and crazy the lives of folks in agriculture can be and how implementing a bit of mindfulness into daily practice can help us be our better selves. To reach out to Debbie... email her at debdespain@yahoo.com

    ASOM - Ep 141 - Charity Never Faileth

    Sorry for getting this out a day late. We had an emergency at our house yesterday that resulted in Carter breaking his collar bone. Let's just say the podcast sort of slipped my mind. Today, I'm giving an update on the podcast and some speaking events I have had the opportunity to be involved in. Then I chat a bit about the craze that is social media in the wake of the Roe v. Wade reversal. Although we may disagree with one another, we may still be civil. Lastly, I speak about a new # on Instagram, #AgLetsTalk that allows for folks to share their mental health journey

    ASOM - Ep 140 - Camden Calloway - The Next Generation of Mental Health Advocacy

    ASOM - Ep 140 - Camden Calloway - The Next Generation of Mental Health Advocacy

    I've long said that the thing I'm most honored and humbled by as a podcast host is when someone reaches out to me to be on the podcast. This is yet another conversation that started out that way. Camden Calloway is a sophomore at Purdue who is majoring in Agronomy. We sat down today to chat about some of the work he has been doing to advocate for mental health for the next generation of ag professionals. To get in contact with Camden, go to CamdenCalloway460@gmail.com or call him at 765-432-5063

Encouraging

This podcast is such a fresh take on mental health in Ag.
Working in the industry, though not as a producer, I connect with a lot that is discussed and appreciate the advice from the guests to help with mental health issues.
Thank you for doing this show!

Valentines episode

Loved the 2 part series with Elaine. Powerful, uplifting & gave a sense of direction all at the same time. Look forward to hearing you two team up again.
