On the other hand, look on the positive side of this. How to do that? Well, you can look for those kinds of companies, that have less strict driving and schedule hours. Thus, you can avoid all of the loneliness, the stress, the sitting in the truck, the back pain and you get to be more with your family.

As a result, search trucking companies that let you decide when you want to take the driving route.The first thing to remember is that there are truck companies that call you before any driving route comes along. They ask you whether you can do the route or not. If you do, you are on the road for the next three months, if not, you stay home. Thus you are not obliged and you can organize your time yourself.

2. Sitting All Day and Driving

Sitting all day causes many damages to your body. Formerly, it is hard for those who work in the office, taxi drivers, not to mention truck drivers. It may not be a problem for the new truck drivers, but after a while becomes bad.

In addition, you need to sit for 1-2 hours total and then make a pause from driving because the back needs movement. Therefore, whenever you see a gas station or a truck stop, use it as a pause to stretch legs or for walking. Even if you do a simple stretching, you can get the blood streaming down your body.
