The holiday season is here and with it comes lots of opportunities to indulge at parties and family gatherings! While you can’t always control what’s on the buffet over Thanksgiving, you can control what you eat at work. Tip #1 – Bring your lunch. While it’s an obvious choice, spend extra time at the beginning of the week planning what you’ll bring for lunch during the week. Pack a lunch that includes veggies, protein and fiber. Tip #2 – Keep healthy snacks at your desk. If you’re hungry, don’t force yourself to wait until a prescribed mealtime. Instead, make sure you have healthy snacks on hand that can be consumed in small amounts Tip #3 – Walk when you can. Sitting at a desk all day wreaks havoc on our bodies – muscles get tight and our posture is bad. Walking or stretching is also a great way to fight boredom – a time when many people would turn to food. Make it a point to walk and/or stretch every hour. Set an alarm and bookmark a website with easy to follow stretches or exercises that you can do at your desk. Tip #4 – Drink up! Drinking water throughout the day keeps you hydrated and feeling full. Dehydration is the cause of many health problems from headaches to dizziness, to feeling sluggish or weak. Keep a large refillable glass/bottle at your desk and sip water throughout the day. Tip #5 – Stay engaged. Being at a desk all day can foster boredom no matter how exciting your job is. Boredom can lead to mindless, constant snacking and feeling lethargic. Stay engaged and fight boredom by following the steps above.

After the dose of abnormal cold that we are about to experience later this week, I’m guessing that viewers will be interested in a segment on how best to utilize the space (and contents) in the trunk of your vehicle as we move into a time of the year when icy conditions can set up, and folks are more prone to be stranded (and in a bind from the weather if they are stranded). Rather than a ‘catch all’ (left below), there are some items that everyone should be carrying (especially when temps drop below freezing) in the trunk of their vehicle (right, below)—booster cables, mobile phone charger, flashlight, an extra blanket/jacket, first aid kit, spare (empty) gas container, an inflated spare tire. In our survey, less only 9% of motorists carried had the recommended items in their trunks.

Game day is almost here and the weather has a lot of folks concerned going into tomorrow's Razorback game against LSU. Tomorrow night, it's expected to be worse as forecasters are predicting a wintry mix Saturday afternoon into the evening. With near to below freezing the past few days, roads around Razorback Stadium may become a little slick. That's why the athletic department is preparing for the weather. Chris Freet, UA Senior Associate AD: "We will work both with the transit authorities and local officials to make sure that the roots of getting into the stadium, around the stadium are clean and efficient. Uh, the last thing we want is unsafe conditions in traffic. Emailing everyone who's purchased a season ticket, we'll certainly do that. Then as we get into the game and as the conditions change or we may have to adjust any post game protocols, we'll certainly use the PA announcer and the video board to, uh, pass along those messages."

Imagine Central Arkansas, the three-year outreach period to gather community input about the future of the region, is in the final stages of developing a long-range plan for the four-county region of Central Arkansas. Metroplan, which leads this planning effort, is seeking public input on the draft plan. Since 2012, Metroplan has engaged residents, businesses and other stakeholders in developing a 30-year vision for the region that includes Faulkner, Lonoke, Pulaski and Saline Counties. The public is invited to view the plan at imaginecentralarkansas.org and to provide input on the website. A Community Conversation on the plan is set for Thursday, November 13, at the Willie Hinton Neighborhood Resource Center, at 3805 W. 12th Street from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Arkansans are also encouraged to view a short video, "I Am Central Arkansas," that showcases the great places and people of the region while also summarizing the plan. Imagine Central Arkansas strives to be all-inclusive so that each and every voice has an opportunity to be heard. The planning process has put special emphasis on efforts to engage historically marginalized populations that have lacked inclusion in community planning, including communities of color and people with disabilities. Additional information is available at www.metroplan.org or imaginecentralarkansas.org.

Holiday Shopping is upon us and we all want the best deal out there! Here are a few tips to help you save this year Local Deals and Events: The Promenade at Chenal Coupon Flyer Knowledge Tree- Thomas and Friends Deals Knowledge Tree- Frozen Event 11/22 Little Rock Mommy 2014 Holiday BootCamp 11/20 Doorbusters: Doorbuster deals are super-cheap, small-volume deals designed to get shoppers inside stores on Black Friday (although they frequently appear online as well). Often these deals run out fast. It is predicted that more retailers to offer a handful of "guaranteed" doorbuster deals this year, meaning eligible shoppers will receive wristbands or vouchers that guarantee that item, even if supplies run out (but you might have to wait a few weeks to receive it). Walmart and Toys "R" Us did this to great success last year, and it's expected to see more stores join in this year. Electronics: This year we expect to see no-frills 4K TVs hit well below the $999 mark. Leading the charge will be budget TV manufacturer Seiki, which broke all deal records this summer with its $280 39" and $429 50" 4K TVs. Tablets are item on a lot of consumers lists. With growing competition from Apple, Google, and Microsoft, it's a buyer's market, which means you can expect more tablet sales this year than there were in 2013. Toys: Traditionally toy deals peak around mid-December, but in 2013 the best deals were out early. This year we are already seeing national retailers putting our some hot deals now. If there is a "must have" item on your list I wouldn't wait to purchase. It's expected to see some big deals on Black Friday for gaming systems and games so stay posted.

The Rise of A Landmark: Lewis Hine and the Empire State Building exhibit. · From a bedrock pit to the colossus of the Manhattan skyline, photographer Lewis Wickes Hine (American, 1874-1940) documented every foot of the construction of the monumental Empire State Building. · In 1930 Hine began the treacherous ascent—safety belt in place and camera in hand—with the expectation of creating an ideal portrait of modern architecture. · However, his resulting photographs of this year-long project speak more of the integrity of the workers who toiled to perfect the structure than of the glorification of the building itself. · Hine’s Empire State photographs build on this theme of the human condition amidst the quickening pace of early twentieth-century society. · Here he reveals each worker’s individual dignity and inherent link to the fabric of the towering structure. · This exhibit will be on display in the exhibit hall at The William F. Laman Public Library until December 28th.
