Happy New Year to every truck driver out there! With the start of 2020 and a new decade, now is a good time to think about what New Year’s resolutions for truck drivers that you could make and achieve with the truck driver lifestyle.
With some creativity, you can come with ones you can achieve while on the road like these:
1. Get the semi-truck gifts you didn’t get during the holidays.
If there were specific semi-truck gifts you had on your gift list for your truck, like-new truck seats, heated mirrors, safety products, and accessories, but you didn’t get them, go ahead and treat yourself.
2. Watch what you eat.
You don’t have to go on the latest fad diet, but try to include more fruits and vegetables in your daily meals and cut down on fried foods and fast food.
3. Move around as much as you can.
Even though you spend up to 11 hours each day sitting, you should still try to schedule in 30 minutes of moving each day like walking or jogging.
4. Review defensive and safe driving habits.
Completing a refresher makes you a safer driver and helps reduce the risks of accidents and injuries.
5. Get your annual wellness checkup.
Your health is important no matter where you are. Remember to also visit a dentist twice a year and see an eye doctor once a year.
6. Pick up a new hobby.
Instead of sitting in your truck watching movies or playing games, find a new hobby to help keep you stimulated. Some truckers like photography while others learn a second language.
7. Spend more time with family and friends.
It is difficult to spend time with family and friends when you are thousands of miles away. Yet, thanks to video chat technology, it is easy to connect with friends and family to see what they are up to during virtual visits, as well as share your adventures on the road.
To ensure you stick with your New Year’s resolutions and are successful, choose one or two to get started and do them every day. Before you know it, they will become second nature, so you can focus on other New Year’s resolutions for truck drivers.
