Health Tips for Truck Drivers

Truck Drivers

When you drive a truck for a living, it can be all too easy to fall out of shape thanks to unhealthy habits. Start taking better care of yourself out on the road from here on out using two simple methods.

Eat Better

Jerky and protein bars are great for a quick boost of something when you’re short on time, but don’t allow the Dashboard Diner to become an everyday occurrence. Instead of depending on convenience stores to feed you, think about healthy eating for truck drivers. If your rig has the space for it, cook meals for yourself by setting up a mini kitchen that includes:

  • A hot plate, or single burner
  • A toaster oven
  • Some form of an all-in-one device such as an Instant Pot

Check With Your Insurance

Did you know that sometimes your healthcare provider offers benefits like gym memberships? Call your insurance agent or check in with them at and see if anything like that is offered to you, especially if the gym in question is one that can be found nationwide.

Simply because you do a lot of sitting for a living, that doesn’t mean that you need to be unhealthy. The next time you’ve got a long haul job, use the above tips to start feeling physically better.
