As promised time for our big board breaking down more of this morning's top stories and start with queen latifah, her car stolen from a gas station in Atlanta making her the latest victim of a crime wave that's been hitting major cities around the country and chief David brown joins us. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Doing great. Better now that you are here. This was not your average car, $160,000 Mercedes. What happened here? We know that the driver of the car got out to fill up. The tank being on the opposite side and as that was occurring some suspect drove up beside the car, got in the driver's seat and before the person could complete the process just drove off in the car before they could react. I think of all the times I pull up to the gas staying and run in or a bad of funyons. How how much does this happen. It's on the uptick. In this particular area there's been increase in this, as well so we need to really be aware when we're filling up at the pumps. So what can people do when they're at the pump to protect themselves? The first thing is to be aware of your surroundings before you get out of the car. Look around and if you don't feel comfortable just drive off to another convenience store or gas pump to fill up. If you happen to do get out of your car because you do feel comfortable, continue to keep your head on a swivel and lock your car. Make sure you lock your car any time you get out as a precaution and then finally if you see someone come up to you, if you're out of your car and gassing up and filling up at the pumps, just walk away. No value of a car is worth your injury or your life so just walk away. Walk toward the front of the store where there are a lot of people that can witness what's occurring and hopefully scare off any suspects. Good safety information. Not a lot of safety information about what you should do vis-a-vis funions. Or drive a minivan. Nobody seems to want that. This story hits too close to home. We all remember this scene from the holiday classic "Christmas vacation" when the family arrives. Take a look. Folk, folks, merry Christmas. You know, they took a pint of fluid out of my lower back. This mole is changing color. No. You keep touching it. It's getting redder. Your grandma has a painful one and if you rub it I'll give you a quarter. If you feel wiped out spending too much time with your relatives it's not just in your head. There is a name for this condition. Psychologists have dubbed it family jet lag. We are going to call it fjl and Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo is here with more. So, Dr. Lombardo, I bet a whole lot of our viewers right now, it is the week between, you know, Christmas and new year's. People celebrating Hanukkah as well and a lot of viewers are suffering from it. What exactly is family jet lag? Yes, it is a condition that a lot of people are experiencing with the physical and psychological drain of traveling with your family. Now, it can be caused by physical stressors like the travel, not getting enough sleep, changes in your schedule, you know, indulgences in your diet as well as psychological stressors such as, you know, wanting the holidays to be perfect or dealing with less than pleasant family members. Yeah, expectations can be a huge problem here. What do you recommend viewers do to avoid feeling exhausted while spending time with family during the holidays? Yes, so the first thing to do, take a time-out. Get some sleep, take a nap. Meditate. If nothing else just stop and take five deep breaths, that will help calm your body. The second thing is write a thank you note. I'm not talking about the thank you note to aunt Edna for yet another horrible Christmas gift but an appreciation of someone in your life whether a friend or family member. Research shows when we experience gratitude the stress centers in our brain actually reduce activity. And then get moving. Exercise, go for a walk. Go to the gym. Jump on the bed. Turn on music and dance around, any way you move your body will release bio chemicals that help you feel happier, have less stress and get a good night sleep. I was talking to Paula about this. This really does hit close to home for you, 15 people at your house. Yeah, I only have 12 but I think a couple -- yeah, I have people at my house till new year's. I have my halls and tissues and hot water so that's how family jet lag is hitting me and my family is always here. You're always welcome in my house by the way. Always. Chief, thank you and doctor, thank you as well and appreciate your advice here on the big board.
