HEALTHYLIVINGONTHEROAD Truck drivers, salespeople, long distance commuters and any other person that spends more time in your vehicle than out of it – you know the importance of staying healthy on the road. You also know that it isn’t always easy. And it’s not always about avoiding greasy fast food. Sleep and exercise play just as important a roll as nutrition. No matter where you’re laying down your head for the night, establish a pre-bedtime routine that stays the same. This could be as simple as brushing your teeth and reading a book, but it signals your body that it’s time to turn out the lights. It’s also important to establish a physical activity routine, whether that is daily walks, runs or stretching. Lastly, never skip breakfast and opt for oatmeal instead of bacon and eggs. And carrying healthy snacks like nuts and fruit is a must if you want to avoid giving into cravings and hitting up the drive-through.
