Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture
You Can’t Pour from an Empty Cup - How do you fill it up to support yourself and others?
In this session, Shauna Reitmeier will share how stress, when not addressed, can deplete farming and ranching women’s energy and their ability to effectively keep up with their responsibilities. Participants will learn ways to manage stress and come up with ways to prioritize to keep energy high and meet many demands. Be prepared to ask questions or make comments and the presenter will respond.
The topic for discussion will last approximately 40- 45 minutes and then an interactive Q & A period will utilize the remaining time. All sessions in the series will be recorded and made available after the session for those who could not make the live session or for those who would like to listen again.
