As some of you are aware, November is Men's Health Awareness month. Often times, this month is focused on physical health issues such as prostate cancer. I want to take it a step further and shift the focus of this month to men's mental health. I plan to speak to several men throughout this month to help start a more meaningful conversation around men's mental health. Today's episode is kind of a kick off for our series. Chelsea Hanson and I have been friends through social media for serveral months now. It's been a pleasure to follow along with her family's farm operation in Southern Minnesota. Recently, Chelsea reached out to me and wanted to have a discussion around the importance of males and that we need make sure our men know how important they are to families and to farms. I am very thankful for Chelsea reaching out for this conversation as it is something that I have been wanting to talk about for quite sometime now. I feel like the perspective surrounding men's health and its importance is very powerful coming from a woman. Men make sure you listen to this episode and ladies make sure you tell the men in your life about it! Find more out at https://agstateofmind.com/2020/10/25/asom-ep-57-chelsea-hanson-sass-lake-farms/

Today is a unique episode of the podcast...and if I'm being honest, it's a tad bit selfish. Megan Teerlink hosts my new favorite podcast, Getting Mindful with Megan. She takes an unique approach to mindfulness, intentionality, and self improvement by drawing from her life as a yoga practitioner as well as her own faith in Jesus. Megan's podcast and coaching has been a blessing to our family as you will find out in the podcast. I'm so excited for you guys to find out more about Megan. Find out more about Megan and a few of the things we talk about at https://agstateofmind.com/2020/10/18/asom-ep-56-megan-teerlink-getting-mindful-with-megan/
Nicole Masters joined me to discuss the purpose of weeds on the landscape. We talk about how to be patient and allow weeds to accomplish their job. We also discuss how to determine if the weeds are going to continue to increase or if they are merely bringing in nutrients in which our rangeland plants are deficient.
It is my belief that the mental health of students during the COVID-19 pandemic has not gotten the proper attention. We are trying to do our part here at ASOM to remedy that. Emma Rose Ploch is a student at the University of Missouri and is founder of the Ag Advocacy page Found in the Field. Today, we spend some time talking about why she went into agriculture school and how she has found her passion for ag advocacy. We then talk to her about her unique experience as a college student during the COVID-19 pandemic and how she has had to adjust to all of the different stresses that have come her way.

For lots of us, money is a point of great stress. We are always seeming to chase the dollar thinking that more money equals a better life. Our guest today challenges that a bit. Austin Black is a financial coach with a passion for helping those invovled in agriculture. Today, we chat with Austin about his services and how by changing our relationship with money, we can become happier and more ready to deal with financial stress. A great conversation. I want to also take this opportunity to let everyone know about Ag Mental Health Week. Some of my friends have put together a discussion that will be taking place all across social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) October 10-16. Just search #AgMentalHealthWeek across all the platforms to be a part of the conversation. https://agstateofmind.com/2020/10/04/asom-ep-54-austin-black-freedom-financial-coaching/
