Driving a truck does not mean that your health has to suffer

If you spend your time driving a big rig across California, chances are you spend a majority of your time sitting, sedentary. As such, you may be concerned about your ability to maintain your health and healthy habits. At E&E Law Group, we are aware of the challenges that truckers face as a result of their job. 

When you are receiving training for your new job, a large part of the instruction you receive will be centered around safety. Driving a big rig means you have to be extra cautious and vigilant in following the rules of the road and staying alert despite being on the road for long periods. You also have to be aware of common hazards and how to mitigate the risks you encounter to protect yourself and other motorists. Your training will involve securing your load, maintaining your truck and following protocols designed to encourage you to drive safely and responsibly. 

But, what about your health? According to TransTech, there are plenty of things that you can do to keep yourself healthy on the road. Your health should be a priority to you and can help you to have the energy and awareness that is needed to be safe on the road. Some of the things you can do include the following:

  • Implement a short exercise routine between driving times.
  • Pack healthy snacks.
  • Get plenty of rest whenever you can. 
  • Drink plenty of water and maintain good hygiene. 
  • Avoid unhealthy habits like smoking.

When you are aware of what you can be doing to maintain your health and energy even when driving and sitting for a long time, you can be more productive at your job. For more information about what to do if you have been involved in a trucking accident, visit our web page.
