    Stay Healthy On The Road! 10 Tips for Truckers

    1. Get Adequate Sleep
    It is important for your health. A sleep-deprived person has shown the inability to focus and learn new tasks efficiently.

    2. Eat Healthy
    Eating less process foods and more vegetables and fruits can help you lose weight, boost your immune system, and get a better night of sleep.

    3. Quit Smoking
    Cigarette smoking is the number one cause of preventative disease and death in the world.
    By quitting smoking you can decrease your risk of heart disease, cancer, and other smoking-related diseases.

    4. Manage Your Diabetes
    By focusing on eating healthy, participating in physical activity, and working with your medical provider, your diabetes can be kept under control.

    5. Stay Up to Date on Vaccines
    The CDC strongly urges adults to stay up to date on their vaccines to help prevent contracting preventive diseases.

    6. Drink Lots of Water
    Drinking water every day is essential to good health. Water can help regulate your body temperature, lubricate and cushion joints, and get rid of bodily waste through urination, sweat, and bowel movements.
    Physical activity has many benefits to health.

    7. Exercise More
    It can help you control your weight, reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and strengthen your bones and muscles among many other reasons.

    8. Reduce Stress
    Stress can be linked to a lot of negative feelings in life. Not all stress is bad, but if it has a negative impact on your physical and mental health then you should try to reduce your stress levels.

    9. Take a Vacation
    Taking a vacation, whether it’s just a week at home or a week sitting on a tropical beach drinking Pina Coladas, can help you catch up on sleep and reduce your stress.

    10. Spend Time with Loved Ones
    One study conducted by Brigham Young University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that having strong social connections can boost longevity.

    Very difficult to get adequate sleep if doing long hours driving. Another useful method is meditation. I remember reading that 20 minutes of good meditation is equal to a few hours of sleep. Also the quality of sleep is very important, not just the quantity. Try to be in a good mood and not stressed before bed.
