Personal health is often overlooked in our society. It seems odd and weird since there’s more information than ever for healthy lifestyles. It’s easy to be unconcerned about personal health and fitness in our youth. Most of the repercussions won’t be felt until we’re much older.

The day to day grind of trucking makes putting aside health and fitness easy. It’s easy to say we’ll worry about it tomorrow or next week. But trucking has unique mental and physical strain that should not be overlooked.

Let’s start 2020 with a commitment to health & wellness – both mental and physical!

5 Great Resources for Men’s Health – “Staying on top of health-related information and knowing what you should, and shouldn’t be doing to maintain a healthy lifestyle can be overwhelming. There is so much information out there. Finding information that works best for you when it comes to your lifestyle, fitness, nutrition, stress management, and mental health, is much easier when you know where to look.”

Trucker Exercise on the Road – “Humans are creatures of habit. You need to be dedicated to forming a daily habit to get into or stay in shape. It means reducing the barriers we create to not do something. It’s easier not to do something. Every truck driver can improve their health and physical condition with some dedication and maybe a couple of inexpensive pieces of gear.”

Men’s Health Awareness: Depression and Mental Health – “Mental health issues are just as important as physical health issues and should be diagnosed and treated. Depression is a real illness and it is more than just being sad. According to the Mayo Clinic, people with depression actually have physical differences in their brain, and neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances that determine their condition and the severity of the mental health problem.”

Three Tips for a Long, Healthy Trucking Marriage –  “Being the spouse of an over the road truck driver sure puts a new spin on the definition of marriage. If you’ve been married to a trucker for a long time now, you’ve probably adjusted to the lifestyle, if you’re new to the trucking industry – don’t fear – there is still room for love and marriage and happily ever after.”
