Hitting the Road to Wellness: Master the Keep, Drop, Add Strategy

Let’s face it, folks—life on the road can be as demanding as a tight delivery schedule. Sometimes, our well-being takes a backseat as we focus on the miles ahead. But what if I told you the road to wellness is just a ‘keep, drop, add’ strategy away?

Keep: Your Vital Cargo

Just like you wouldn’t part with essential cargo, there are elements of your life you must hold onto tightly. Keeping is all about identifying what’s working for you. Whether it’s your morning oatmeal, the weekly Skype session with your family, or that nightly 15-minute stretch routine that cuts the edge off. If it’s serving your road to wellness, it’s a keeper.

Drop: The Excess Weight

Now, nobody likes hauling unnecessary weight. It’s the same with life’s stressors. Maybe it’s the fast food pitstops or the negative Nellie on your route’s CB channel. If it’s dragging you down, friend, it’s time to drop it like it’s hot. Clearing out the mental and physical clutter makes room for more positive energy on your road to wellness.

Add: Fuel for the Journey

Sometimes, we need to jazz things up a bit to keep the engine running smoothly. Adding could mean packing more nutritious snacks or doing daily stretches with Mother Trucker Yoga before hitting the highway. Maybe it’s volunteering your time or learning something new. Adding things to your life should revitalize and re-energize you on the road to wellness.

I’ve experienced this strategy personally. After too many days of feeling like an overworked engine, I decided to:

  1. Keep my 20-minute roadside walks.
  2. Drop the habit of drinking 4 cups of joe a night.
  3. Add more laughter—podcasts, phone calls with old buddies, you name it.

The changes didn’t happen overnight, but the impact on my well-being? Priceless.

What about you? Are you ready to make these essential checks on your own road to wellness? If you’re unsure where to start, Mother Trucker Yoga has got your back—or should I say, your seat?

And don’t just take my word for it. Check out the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for some eye-opening stats and tips that support why taking charge of your health, especially on the road, is crucial.

Change is tough, sure. But the beauty of the road to wellness? You’re always in the driver’s seat—ready to shift gears toward a healthier, happier you. Now let’s keep truckin’, drop the baggage, and add those miles of smiles, y’all.

See you on the big road!

Keep rolling on your personal road to wellness and remember, friends, the journey to a better you is always worth the ride!
