New grantraises Dominion's total support ', 0039,000 since 2008 The Dominion Foundation of endangered freshwater has awarded Wetlands Eitonoa a $5,000 grant for continuing sup- port of the St. Paul environ- mental learning center's endan- gered mussel nursery project. The mussel project is an effort by Team Estonoa, the high-school students' who manage the learning center, to assist the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries in their efforts to stop the decline mussels in the Clinch River. The river is home to one of the most diverse populations of fish and mussel species in North America. The Dominion grant was presented recently to Terry Veneil, a teacher at Castlewood High School and executive director of the learning center, by Geoffrey Hensley, the environmental supervisor at Estonoa Dominion's Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center at St. Paul. Vencil expressed her gratitude for Dominion's con- tinued support of the learning center and its many projects. Since 2008, Dominion has contributed $39,000 toward Estonoa's work, including the center's Hillman House landscaping, Estonoa green roof, farmers market and educational symposium projects• Food City kicks off School Bucks Program As students across the tri- point forward, making points the education of our youth and state area of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee head back to school, Food City is gearing up for the kick-off of their School Bucks Program. "We're committed to gix, ing back to the communities we operate in and we take the edu- cation of our youth very seriously," said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.

"Food City has always been an industry leader in supporting we're very excited about the return of our Food City School Bucks Program," commented Non Bonacci, vice president of marketing for Food City.

Energize your work day in a healthier way With long work days and carbohydrate-rich snack, on the in the presence of plants was fully-booked nights, it's no surprise that sometimes a solid eight hours of sleep is just not an option for many. According to the National Sleep Foundation's 2012 "Sleep in America" poll, about one in ten Americans say they are likely to fall asleep at an inappropriate time - like during a work meeting. With some pos- itions, falling asleep at inop- portune times is simply em- barrassing, but in other lines of work, falling asleep is very dangerous. Try these tips from TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) the nonprofit weight-loss support organiza- tion, to relieve fatigue and stay productive. Get up and go - Studies from the American Heart As- sociation say that movement increases the flow of blood to the brain, which in turn, helps you feel more alert. Incorp- orating more activity into your day can give you a mood boost, too. A study of 210 UK workers, most of them with sedentary jobs, found that exercising during the workday made them feel more forgiving of their coworkers' mistakes and more confident in their own abilities, as well as increased their work performance. Take a short walk outside the office, or inside if the weather isn't cooperating, and take the stairs instead of the elevator. Stand while talking on the telephone, and take regular breaks for stretching. Pack some protein - A 2011 study published in the journal Neuron found that protein stim- ulates orexin cells in the brain, which send electrical impulses that keep us alert and awake. A other hand, boosts blood sugar and then lowers it just as quickly, which can cause that drowsy, dragging feeling. Quick, work-friendly, high-protein bites include a hard-boiled egg, a cup of Greek yogurt, a handful of pumpkin seeds, or almonds. Give in to your caffeine craving - The reliable favorite, caffeine, undoubtedly works to keep your eyes open, but what's the healthiest way to get it into your system, and how much is enough? Experts consider 200 to 300 milligrams of caffeine per day a moderate amount. So to avoid jitters or insomnia later in the day, limit yourself to three eight-ounce cups of coffee. By comparison, according to the Mayo Clinic, black tea can have up to 61 milligrams per eight ounces. Coffee and tea are a better choice than sugary and sodium-filled energy drinks and sodas but should still be sipped in moderation. Let the light in - Does your work environment feel like a cave? With no indicators of time of day or weather conditions, fluorescent lighting, and bleak surroundings, it's easy to feel sleepy. If you don't work in proximity to windows, studies have shown that having a live plant can be just as effective. A study recently conducted at Washington State University showed that having plants around a work area can greatly improve employees' energy level. The results showed that workers with desk plants were 12 percent more productive and less stressed, than those who worked in an environment with no plants. Subject reaction time also 12 percent faster than those in the absence of plants. Keep tabs on your hydra- tion - Water is important for your overall health and plays a part in energy levels as well. Dehydration can cause fatigue, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Also consider eating foods high in water, including strawberries, watermelon, canta- loupe, peaches, cucumbers, tom- atoes, and zucchinis, to replen- ish. TOPS Club Inc.
