Trucking Tips: Stay Healthy on the Road

Whether you’re new to trucking or you have years of experience, the trucker life can easily lead to an unhealthy lifestyle. Check out these tips from Porter Billing Services to help truckers stay healthy while out on the road.

Put Out that Cigarette

Many of us in the trucking community find smoking to be a stress reliever, a social habit, or even just a simple pleasure. However, smoking poses many health risks. The first step to improving your health is to kick your smoking habit to the curb!

No More Daily Double Hamburger

Fast food is delicious, convenient, and inexpensive. It can be easy to get in the habit of eating fast food every day. However, fast food takes a toll on your body! That includes junk food at gas stations. Put down the Honeybun and opt for something a little more nutritious. Try a sandwich place, fruit, nuts, and trail mix instead.

Stay Hydrated

When you’re out on the road all day, it is important that you keep your body well fueled. Get a durable, reasonably sized water bottle. Water keeps your organs lubricated and your mind functioning at high capacity. On top of keeping you hydrated, it’s good to keep water handy in case you ever get stranded on the side of the road!

Fit a Little Fitness into Your Day

As truck drivers, our careers involve a lot of sitting. It is essential to find time to exercise between work. Even thirty minutes a day to work on strengthening your muscles and controlling your weight is important. For a little cardio, find time for a daily walk or jog, especially during the warmer months.
