Healthy Habits for the Long Haul is a 12-week interactive course that focuses on building healthy habits to manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and more. Topics will include nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, and more. Education will be tailored to OTR drivers and adjusted based on the conditions represented in each group. Participants will receive an assortment of tools to help track progress including a scale, blood pressure cuff, and more. Drivers can join at any time throughout the course, though new courses will start quarterly.
One day while driving listening to Road Dog trucking on XM satellite radio I heard a commercial about St. Christopher’s Trucking Relief Fund. The curiosity struck me and as soon as I stopped driving for the day I went to google and looked up what St. Christopher’s was all about. The section on their website about Healthy Habits and classes for drivers spoke to me like a spiritual experience. I immediately filled out the forms online form to attend a virtual class and the very next day I received a phone call from Lindsey to complete my registration. I had no idea what was about to happen over the course of the next 12 weeks. To my surprise the information given to me was so easy to understand and digest mentally that it sparked a wire in my brain that I didn’t know was still there. Hearing the stories of the struggles that other drivers were going through was the key that unlocked all the motivation for me. I slowly began to have hope and motivation to want to achieve new goals and lifestyle changes for the better. The other piece of all of this was that Lindsey is there via email or text 7 days a week to answer ANY questions that a driver may have. This program is so well put together and the knowledge that Lindsay has is incredible.
I am so glad I found Your courses, When I first started, I was about 10% motivation level now I feel like I’m at around 60%. They have helped so much.
