‘Self-care isn’t selfish’: The importance of prioritizing personal restoration for everyone in trucking

In a recent episode of FreightWaves’ Taking the Hire Road podcast, NTI’s Leah Shaver spoke with Eileen Dabrowski, director of learning, development, and marketing at Werner subsidiary ReedTMS Logistics, about the vital topic of self-care. Balancing various roles like work, parenting, spousal duties, and caregiving can be overwhelming. Even though carving out time for self-care might seem difficult, it’s essential for your physical and mental health. This episode emphasizes that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to self-care and provides tips on creating personalized routines that work for both you and your busy schedule.
