What am I thankful for?
My family and all others would not have their home, food on the table, and the supplies needed without you.
You sacrifice yourself and possibly your family for the conveniences of others. Pushing that truck down the road can be so rewarding by seeing different places and letting the windshield be your office window, but it is not always fun and games. It is hard physically and emotionally.
Truck driving can take a toll on your health. Hours and hours of sitting, limited choices of healthy food, and the stress of being on the road, puts your health at risk. But there are ways to make driving optimal.
- Walk around as much as possible when you’re stopped.
- Become the master planner of meals. When you can stop at a store, stock up on healthy choices, so that you don’t end up needing to get only what is available at truck stops or fast food places.
- Keep a positive attitude. Over and over again science is proving how important our emotional outlook is on our physical health. Be thankful.
My hope for you this Thanksgiving and years to come is that you have optimal health for your highest good and the good of all.
THANK YOU DRIVERS, you are so special to me and to us all.
