Stress Relief for Truckers and
Professional Truck Drivers


Woman worried or stressed out over something.As many responsibilities as truckers have, stress relief sure comes in handy sometimes. Let's first understand what we mean by stress.

One of the definitions on Wordnik that works well for this topic is:

"A mentally or emotionally disruptive or upsetting condition occurring in response to adverse external influences and capable of affecting physical health...."

Over the years, truckers have

  • had their responsibilities increased (CSA),
  • had their available work hours decreased (HOS) and
  • seen inflation whittle away their wages (BLS).

On top of all of the concerns with actually transporting the freight, add the concern of picking up and delivering freight on time -- sometimes when there are unconscionable delays in docks. It's a recipe for a healthy dose of stress.

Sometimes after someone commits a really violent act, people wonder what caused the person to snap. As a trucker, you don't want to let yourself get under so much stress that you snap.

Some truckers relieve stress by keeping open lines of communication with their families (home support teams) and their driver managers, fleet managers or dispatchers.

Sometimes just expressing opinions or feelings has a way of relieving stress.

Is there anything else that truckers can do to help with stress relief?

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 stress relief.

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

Also, the list of essential oils for stress relief 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:






Because of their unique Seed to Seal® process and the success we have personally experienced in using them, we unapologetically recommend pure therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living for stress relief.
