Post by: K&J Trucking

Do you detest grocery shopping? After days on the road you are stuck going up and down every single aisle trying to find the foods on your list, or worse, going in blind, not knowing how much you're going to end up spending or how many of these foods you actually need.

You tell yourself you're going to avoid the candy aisle, but you pass them and see those Raisinettes. Raisins are healthy, right? So the candy must not be that bad for you.

Trucking Jobs Don't Have to Equal Bad Health July 7 2016

Post by: Brenda Boese

It isn’t a secret. Trucking jobs don’t lend themselves to good health. And it makes sense; if you sit in a chair for most of the day and aren't always home to make your own food, staying healthy is going to be more difficult. You might think that focusing on your health is a luxury, but you can’t afford to ignore your health. No one wants to get sidelined as a trucker. Time off the road means no money coming in. Focus on your health now, before problems arise. It takes forethought, but it isn’t impossible!
