LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: Freezing temperatures will develop later tonight, causing damage to flowers and plants that are left exposed to the cold. Be sure to bring in your potted plants before you go to bed, as lows drop into the lower to mid 20s...about 25 degrees for Knoxville and Oak Ridge.
Spring is here so the Knox County Health Department encourages you to get outside and get active. Here's a few simple tips from the physical activity director, Brianne House.
"Health starts long before our doctor's appointments. It's where we work, live, learn and play. In our healthy weight program, we focus on prevention," said House.
House says trying to incorporate small activity into your day can make a difference. For example, take a walk during your lunch break, park further away from building so you will walk in. Another suggestion, stand up while you are talking on the phone.
