5 Trucking Resolutions for 2017

  1. Eat Healthier – Being stuck on the road can make eating healthy a real challenge. This year, pack healthy snacks to keep in an insulated lunch box or ice chest. Or consider investing in an electric skillet to create your own healthy meals or heat up leftovers. Be sure to check the capacity of your truck and install an inverter where needed.
  2. Pass Inspections – Inspections can be a cause of unnecessary anxiety on the road. In 2017, make a commitment to ensuring your truck is always in working order and up to par by conducting regular self-inspections on your vehicle.
  3. Find Balance Between Work and Family – Balancing time with your family while working long hours on the road traveling is difficult. Keep an organized calendar labeling your family events and work commitments in different colors. Doing this will not only help you keep track of where you need to be but also if one aspect of life seems to be taking over.
  4. Get in Shape – Getting in shape while sitting behind the wheel all day may seem like an oxymoron. But there are ways to accomplish it! Each stop you take, stretch! And stretch some more. Get that blood pumping to the very tips of your fingers and ends of your toes to keep your heart happy. Go for a quick walk to get your muscles moving rather than sitting down on breaks.
  5. Enjoy the Job – It’s no secret that sitting in traffic or trucking down long boring roads can become mundane. But it doesn’t have to be! Keep track of all the fantastic places you visit or interesting sites you see. Whether you maintain a blog to share your travels with many or simply share it with a few loved ones, realizing this perk of the job can make the time go quicker. You can also improve on your skills and education by learning a new language via audio courses or find a podcast that captures your interest.
