Driving Healthy helps us lead by example, and take advantage of time off. Shawn gave me lots of tips before we took our 3800-mile 4-week road trip across the country.
Longest road trip: well over 1000 miles
Average Road trip: some days working outreach I might drive 350 in a day
Eating Healthy –
nutrition is huge
Know your body’s needs and what causes problems.
I stay with simple things that I can extend throughout the day.
Meat cheese and nuts work great for me.
Drink things that help you hydrate and feel better
Stop and do your lunch break and bring a game, frisbee, or soccer ball.
Pee breaks also help to get you up and moving
Bring a cooler of healthy snacks and food with you.
Staying fit –
Donnie Thompson bowtie for postural correction
Keep exercises – band pull-a-parts
Doing the old rocky routine with the lat pulldown machine in the truck
Use a lacrosse ball in a tube sock for mobility
Lifting heavy before starting a long drive gave me soreness that encouraged me to move.
Mile markers: I would see a mile marker and think for this mile I am going to focus on getting a really good core contraction.
Then I would squeeze the butt for the next mile.
Staying Awake –
Get up and move
Changing what I listen to helps me.
