Driving Healthy

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.

Driving Healthy

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.
