One can pretty much break down what it takes to be Healthy by what I call" The Four Pillars." The Four Pillars of Health are Sleep, Exercise, Diet, and I include one more Pillar that I call Fun. Fun? you might ask, "what does Fun have to do with being healthy?" Fun can be just about anything Golf, Meditating, Playing with your Kids, Praying, Fishing, Watching Spaghetti Westerns, Going Out to Eat. Some Drivers bring a pet on the road and for them that is fun! You name it if it takes you to a higher Place or allows you to feel at Peace and Happy it qualifies as Fun! I have met a lot of Drivers (myself included) that sometimes completely sublimate having fun for earning money, Money is great and important to have but remember one thing, when you die I doubt the last thing you are going to think is gee! " I wish I had worked harder and made more money." In order for money to have any value it has to serve a purpose you decide what that purpose should be, but make sure while you are out there Hustling that you take a break to do something just for the pure Fun of it! Wake up 15 minutes early and take a walk, or sleep in an extra 15 minutes and then take a walk, a lot of drivers bring a pet with them this is a great reason to stop and take a walk, I even know a driver that brings his souped up remote control helicopter with him and flies it around rest areas and industrial parks. whatever it takes just don't let yourself get burnt out or in a Rut driving your truck. You may have heard that old quote "he who dies with the most toys wins" well I would like to amend that to say. "He who dies with the most well used toys and a smile on his face wins" B
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
