Know What Causes Farm Stress (PSA Radio Script)

(Time: 30)

We all know what can really make a day turn bad. The weather, an equipment breakdown, falling markets.

But do you know why these events cause so much stress? Any time you don't know what to expect or a situation is out of your control, you may experience stress. Long-lasting problems can take their toll over time, too.

Learn to take care of your physical needs with enough nutritious foods and rest. Take care of your emotional health, too, by talking about problems and taking time to relax.
