Emotional Wellness for Truckers
and Professional Truck Drivers


Beyond emotional balance, one's emotional wellness can have a profound impact on his/her ability to do a job well. We don't know of a single employer who isn't looking for employees who are physically, mentally and emotionally well.

Some truckers may achieve emotional health through reliance on a spiritual higher power (link, link, link, link). Others may tame their emotions other ways. Did you know that smoking affects one's emotions (link)?

When one's being emotionally well goes haywire, horrible things can happen. For example:

  • In July 2013, the state of Texas executed a man who killed two truck drivers in a fit of road rage

    (no longer online)
    .
  • Truck drivers themselves can get caught up in road rage (link, link).

Man with his head down in frustration.Every relationship that a truck driver has can take its toll on his/her emotional well being:

  • family relationships (spouse, children, parents, extended family, etc.),
  • working relationships (driver manager, team driver, co-workers, vendors, customers, etc.) and
  • other relationships (political, spiritual, tax-related, fellow travelers, etc.).

There are myriads of other examples in which a trucker's emotional wellness may be stretched. We have described a situation so grave that a trucker may be tempted to abandon a truck.

Is there anything that truckers can do to help with emotional wellness?

Yes!

We are not qualified to render medical advice; however, we urge truckers to seek -- whenever possible -- natural alternatives to prescription medications (which almost always have side effects).

Furthermore, we recommend using pure therapeutic grade essential oils for emotional wellness.

Below, we have listed (in alphabetical order) essential oils used for emotional wellness. Each person's needs and biochemistry may be different from someone else's.

Also, the list of essential oils for emotional wellness below is one of several lists that we have grouped under "trucker health" in the Health and Wellness section on our site. The other lists are:

Essential oils have the ability to directly access and affect the brain’s limbic region, the center of emotion and memory. Many oils can be used to create a positive emotional state, help soothe grief, create an environment of relaxation at the end of a long day, and much more. These pure essential oils are uniquely able to bring emotional balance where less pure oils may not:
