Truck Drivers: Top 5 Resolutions to Make in 2023

Post Date - Jan 3, 2023

Have you been wanting to make some changes to your lifestyle? With the new year upon us, now is the perfect time to pick up some new habits. Boyd Brothers always wants truckers to be performing at their best – both at the wheel and in their off time – so we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 resolutions for truck drivers who want to be successful in 2023.

#5: Take up a new hobby

We know how hard truck drivers work to use their specialized skillset in keeping America running smoothly. With so much dedication to their professional lives, it can be easy for drivers to forget about their own interests. Picking a hobby in the new year is a great way to disconnect from work in your off time. If you can find one that can be done on the road, like learning a second language or photography, you can continue perfecting your craft even while on the road!

#4: Drink more water

This one may seem pretty obvious but it’s all too easy to forget to pick up your water bottle throughout the day! Staying hydrated is key to a positive mindset, to keeping you energized, and to protecting your immune system. Purchasing a large water bottle to keep nearby is an easy way to remind yourself to drink water throughout the day. Adopting a simple resolution like this one can help ease you into bigger changes later in the year.

#3: Prioritize physical activity

Just like drinking water, being active is vital to your physical AND mental well-being. We know that you’re busy behind the wheel and finding time to be active can seem overwhelming. Making the change to find scenic rest stops or parks to walk around during your off time on the road can change the game for your health.

#2: Put safety first

Truck drivers are selfless people – its one reason that truck driving is such a noble career. Since the new year is an optimal time to reset, it’s the perfect time to go over the maintenance of your truck and to review safety protocols. These seemingly small tasks can go unchecked throughout the year. Starting off the right foot with safety first is sure to make 2023 a good year.

#1: Plan for your future

As the new year begins, many of us are thinking about what the future may look like. Now is the time to start making plans for a comfortable and secure future for you and your loved ones. You’ve already made a great career choice by choosing the high-demand field of truck driving, now its time to start investing in a 401k, putting money into savings, and considering how to step your career up to the next level!
