There's no doubt that stress is a part of every professional driver's workday.
On March 4, 2015, while I was en route toward Louisville, KY, winter driving conditions made themselves evident with blowing snow and building traffic.
By the time I got on I-64, I had head tension and I was very nervous because of all the traffic that surrounded me.
In my truck, I keep a small roll-on bottle of an essential oil blend called Stress Away.
When the occasion presented itself while we were stopped momentarily, I applied some to my hand and massaged it very quickly into my neck and around my head.
Within about 10 minutes, the tension stopped but even more impressive was that I felt more relaxed and better able to deal with my environment!
Further down the road, we had difficult conditions again.
What did I reach for?
You guessed it!
My Stress Away was waiting right there for me.
I reapplied and it was only a few minutes later that I felt that the stress was gone.
I know this product works in other situations because my wife and I were in Salt Lake City, Utah for a convention in 2013.
I was highly concerned as we had "lost" our major credit card.
Dealing with the situation was very much a concern, but with the assistance of another individual in front of me who must have heard about what we were dealing with, she generously offered her bottle of Stress Away roll-on.
It was my first experience using this.
In only a few minutes, this wonderful blend did its work and I was able to relax and concentrate on the meeting we were attending.
Stress has the potential to be harmful to anybody's well-being if not dealt with eventually.
Personally, I can't think of a better, more natural way than with the use of Stress Away.
It certainly would be a more cost-effective way than taking some expensive pharmaceutical that probably has multiple side effects.
I don't need that when I'm driving a large tractor trailer unit, and it is much better when the results desired are achieved very quickly and are long lasting.
I'm grateful to have my Stress Away out here on the road!
