Fairly new here and really enjoy the discussions. My question pertains to needing tips on surviving the long hrs. i am a feeder driver now for 15 years and am in my 50's. i work about 11-12 or more hrs a day in snow country and have an hr commute each way. For all of my career have been able to handle these hrs BUT for the last couple years it seems i am really wearing down. i get so tired, i can't think straight and really need my vacations to recuperate, etc. management gives me a hard time if i won't volunteer for extra work. i think sometimes i am becoming unsafe. i have even gone to the doctor and been thoroughly checked out and they found nothing wrong. i eat right for the most part ( maybe only 10-15 lbs over what the doctor wants ) I take brisk walks on my meal or breaks. does anyone have any tips? maybe lift weights or try some new foods? do energy drinks work? any advice would be greatly appreciated. what works for you? I've got 10 years left and right now, the way i feel, don't think i can make it.
