Mental Fitness
How are you doing, trucking nation? Really, are you keeping your mental game strong? After a long day’s work, it is easy to just sit back and turn on the tv, but you could be doing something to strengthen your mental focus and learn a new skill that could benefit you in a zombie apocalypse. Now I don’t actually think that would happen, but it’s interesting to think about. These suggestions might sound childish, but what’s life without whimsy. You can build a replica of your truck out of Legos, learn to sew, solve a Rubix cube, learn origami, and so much more. Think of something to do that doesn’t involve technology. I think our brains just need a break from all the gadgets. 
Thank you so much for listening and I hope you enjoyed this week’s show. Stop on by the Trucking Nation Facebook page for a visit and share some pictures of your travels. I love seeing all the places you get to go. I’m on Twitter too! Have a great weekend Trucking Nation, and remember you get what you give in this world, so try to be kind and enjoy the ride. I’ll talk to you soon – Misty Noel.
