The Best Free Apps for Truck Drivers During COVID-19

Are you a key worker who is driving an HGV on the front line? Long days behind the wheel can be stressful, so we wanted to highlight a selection of mobile apps which are currently offering their premium content for free, during the pandemic. This article will help you to find the best app to help you unwind.

Headspace is advertised as an effective way of reducing stress - ideal for a busy truck driver.

Headspace includes meditations, sleep and movement exercises to help you relax.
