As a truck driver, being on the road frequently can provide some challenges for everyday life. Here are some tips to help you on your next trip!
Chewing peppermint or cinnamon gum while you drive can actually make the time a lot more pleasant! These flavors of gum are proven to decrease frustration by 25% and increase alertness by 30% while driving. Next time you are at the store, stock up on gum to keep in your truck!
Storage containers are a handy, inexpensive way to keep your space organized on the road. A great tip is to have a stock bin of dry goods and water on hand, to ensure you always have the energy you need to keep going on the road.
Cooking on the Road
A slow cooker, such as a Crock-Pot(R), is a great way for truck drivers to save time and money while on the road! Stopping for food on the road is not only more expensive, but does not always offer the healthiest options. Crock pot cooking offers a cheaper, healthier alternative! A great way to use a slow cooker is to prep meal contents ahead of time at home, freeze, and then cook in the crock pot later when needed. Many slow cookers are able to be plugged into a car’s cigarette lighter for heating.
