Save on Trucking insuranceWhen you think of dangerous occupations, police officers and construction workers probably come to mind. But research has shown that truck drivers, in comparison to the rest of US workers, are twice as likely to be obese. Over 80 percent of truckers have at least one chronic disease risk factor like high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Not to mention, the amount of time truckers spend on the road makes it statistically more likely for them to suffer an accident and/or other road hazards. These factors combined prove that trucking can be a hazardous occupation. Luckily, there are ways to improve your health, even with a sedentary job.

Rest stops make it easy to consume sugary beverages and greasy fast food. Combine that with sitting all day and you have a recipe for gaining weight and weakening your heart health. One simple step toward better health is to limit your soda consumption to no more than three beverages per week. Drinking good 'ole water is much better for keeping you hydrated on the road.

And drinking plenty of water can also curb cravings for snacks by making you less hungry, whereas sodas and energy drinks can actually enhance your cravings for junk food. Speaking of junk food, try to make smarter choices for meals and snacks. When you do indulge in an unhealthy favorite, remember that portion has a lot to do with your health. Try eating a healthy meal with an indulgent side dish or dessert. That's much better for you than eating an entire unhealthy meal.

During breaks and your time off, make sure you get in some quality exercise. That doesn't necessarily mean pumping iron at the gym. It can be as simple as going on a long walk or doing five to ten minutes of calisthenics at rest stops. Introducing exercise into your daily routine helps improve heart health, enhances your mood and reduces your risk for chronic disease.

Stay well while on the road. Call Security First Insurance Agency at (810) 732-5800 for more information on Flint trucking insurance.
