Webinar: A thousand small things to help your wellbeing

Go Back

During our wellbeing webinar last month, Marc Gascoigne, New Zealand dairy farmer and ambassador for Farmstrong, New Zealand shared his personal wellbeing story, which has already resonated with so many farmers here in Scotland. 

He gave examples of the positive steps he implemented into his daily life which have improved and helped his mindset. “It wasn’t farming that was the problem, it was my thought process,” says Marc.

30 years of farming and 20 of those years struggling silently with anxiety and depression, Marc visited his GP after suffering a panic attack when out checking the livestock one morning. Following this visit, he was then introduced to Farmstrong, which was just beginning its journey in New Zealand, and through their website and tools, he began the journey of adopting small activities and practices, that would help with his wellbeing.
