Healthy Habits When You’re Out On The Road
A healthy lifestyle is key for the Long Distance Truck Driver
One of the biggest challenges for long-haul truck drivers, also known as over-the-road (OTR) trucker, is to maintain a healthy lifestyle while out on the road. OTR truck drivers travel long distances and can be away from home for weeks at a time. Trucking is a tough job that often leads to an unhealthy lifestyle. Many truck drivers rely on enormous amounts of caffeine and junk food to pass the time and get energy.
Rest stops can exacerbate this problem if they offer limited healthy food choices. At some truck stops, you can fuel, shower, eat and possibly even have your truck worked on, which can save you time by making one stop instead of several places to get food. However, staying healthy is essential. It’s critical for your well-being, as well as for success in your career. Establishing healthy habits can help prevent burnout and keep you energized throughout the day.
