When you are a commercial driver, it’s important to focus on good health all year long, especially since you spend so many days on the road. Because if you take care of your heart, it’ll take care of you!
First, there’s a major health problem many of us face: too much sitting.
Did you know…sitting more than 11 hours a day makes you 40% more likely to die within three years than someone who sits less than four hours a day?
We also know that, unfortunately, sometimes sitting for long periods of time is out of your control. Whether you have a desk job or drive for commercial trucking, you’re probably spending a lot of time sitting.
The good news is that 30 minutes of exercise a day, 5 days a week, could increase your life expectancy and reduce the risk of diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
We hope you’re motivated to get out there and exercise. Even a few simple changes make a huge difference: take the stairs, walk your dog or jog in place during your lunch break.
