Video: Be Active

Go Back

The five steps to wellbeing include connecting, taking notice, giving, keep learning and staying active, and our an integral part of the Farmstrong Scotland programme.

In this short video, Marc Gascoigne, a Farmstrong ambassador and diary farmer, touches on one of the steps – be active.

Keeping active is a great way to feel good. Working up a sweat releases endorphins that make you feel alert and better able to cope with challenges. Make physical activity a habit, aim for at least 30 minutes of movement a day. It could be as simple as leaving the quad in the yard and walking to check the livestock. It can be a game-breaker in lifting your mood and keeping you in better shape. Do what you can, enjoy what you do and shift your mood.

This video was captured at the Farmstrong Scotland tour, hosted in January 2023 and welcomed hundreds of farmers and crofters to hear more about the Farmstrong Scotland story.
