“Fatigue is another word for extreme exhaustion of both mental and physical strength,” says psycho-therapist Salma Prabhu. You feel you can’t go on or even talk to anyone. Short breaks don’t help; you need to take a longer one.
Mental fatigue is caused by any prolonged activity along with high levels of stress and emotions. It is seen among individuals who work on tight deadlines for long durations and carry out tasks that require continuous attention and effort. It results in mistakes, affects decision making skills and drops performance drastically.
One can prevent fatigue by defining limits and sticking to them. If you know the physical and mental threshold of work is say, eight hours, and include music, a walk or reading, then fatigue will rarely set in. People who exercise regularly, meditate, practise yoga and pranayama hardly experience fatigue. Many offices have soft music in the background, gym or cafeteria, all of which help alleviate stress.
Do these once a week.
Get a massage and listen to soothing music
Eat light and go for a brisk walk to pump up the blood circulation
Avoid phone calls
SCENT FOR HELP
Cut open, peel or inhale the aroma of citrus fruits such as lemon, orange or lime between tasks. Carry rosemary, lavender, tulsi or lemon grass in cloth sachets or crush them and inhale deeply. Dab eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief, or crush leaves by hand and inhale. Keep a bunch of jasmine, roses and champa near your workspace.
YOGA TO THE RESCUE
Under pressure, lactic acid accumulates around our neck. Exercise frees up the nervous system in this area, since all the nerves branch out from the base of the neck.
Rotate your neck clockwise and anti-clockwise.
Sit cross-legged on the floor.
Drop your neck forward, with your chin touching your chest roll to your left, then drop your head back, roll to the right and come back to the starting position. Repeat in anti-clockwise motion. Do five to six sets of the same.
To relieve tired collar muscles, rest your hands on your thighs and roll your shoulders front to back and then back to front. Repeat five to six times.
The lower back feels the strain if you are on your feet for too long. Twisting it flexes the spine. Lie on your back and pull your knees up. Drop your knees to the left such that the left knee touches the floor and the right thigh and knee rest on it. Drop your head to the right side, make sure that your hands are near your ears. Count till seven and change direction. Repeat three times for each side.
The energy regeneration point is in the middle of the inside of the right forearm. Press, roll and pump it with your left thumb to energise it.

India's hope for a H1N1 vaccine has got a shot in the arm with Serum Institute beginning animal trials for the vaccine, a prelude to much tougher human trials. "Animal trials for the H1N1 vaccine have started," Rajeev M Dhere, Senior Director, Serum Institute of India, said.
Around 500 doses of the H1N1 vaccine will be administered to animals over a period of 40 to 50 days and the report on toxicity and immunogenicity will be submitted to the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) for permission to undertake Phase I human clinical trials.
"We hope to finish the animal trials by November end or December first week and begin human trials thereafter with permission from the DGCI," Dhere said.
All clinical trials for the vaccine are expected to end by February, he said.
"If the human trials are successful, by March the vaccine should be made available. We have the technology to produce the vaccine that can be pressed into service immediately for commercial production depending upon the scale of requirement after regulatory clearances," he said.
"Going by our animal data, so far, the results are satisfactory," Dhere said..

20 'never-tried-before' tips for sizzling sex!
1. Keep your panties on
Wearing underwear can really hot up the session. It can be pleasurable torture to play with each other, teasing and stroking through the fabric. It acts like foreplay where you are building up the anticipation, so that when you finally do have skin-on-skin contact, it'll be that much more explosive and exciting.
2. Warm breath on your nape
Nothing arouses you more than the warm breath of your partner on your nape - it’s the only sound in the room and is very erotic. In no time will you be a ready and willing partner.
3. Do it movie-style
Every Hollywood movie has one scene where the couple is doing it standing up - against a wall, stairs, behind a door, etc. So what is stopping you from doing it too? Not only will such a quickie have your adrenaline rush up, it will make you agile on your feet! Pick a moment, but don't tell him about it and pounce. A hot, wet kiss and the urgency will have him reacting in a way he’s never done before.
4. Fast and furious
Jump into the shower with him for a quick, hot make-out session. Change out of your cotton panties into a lacy thong. You could also cuddle up behind him while he is preparing breakfast. Whisper in his ear a play-by-play of exactly what it is you plan to do to him tonight. Tell him about your hot dream.
5. Prop shop
Anything can set the mood, so why not go right ahead and try one of these out - board games, delicious food in the bedroom and toys for the tub!
6. Shy gal
Some women may be shy during sex and when you ask them what is it that they would like, they may get nervous and feel it is too demanding to state. What you can do is to try broaching the subject with your partner in a different setting, where you can express your desires in a more relaxed way. How about cuddling up to him while watching a sexy scene on TV and whispering if you could try that out! Your partner will love you for it, so don’t worry please.
7. Be a wild child
There’s something deliciously dangerous about doing it in a non-private area, which could be on the beach or a park, a lift or even a restaurant restroom. You may need to be careful with insects and itchy grass if you are in a park area, and sand is very abrasive so you may want to have a blanket handy. Be prepared for embarrassment if you do have an unwanted visitor. Also please note, there are laws against indecent exposure in public places, so if you care caught, have an explanation ready!
8. Light of your life
Turn off the lights and take a little torch. Guide the glow to areas of your body that you want him to lick or rub. Start with your neck, ears, nipples - go wherever you want him to explore. Even if it's a nonsexual area like your back, he has to pay attention to that area until you stop shining the flashlight on it.
9. Women love their bodies
Women who enjoy sex are comfortable with touching themselves, as that’s how they learn about their own bodies, what they like or don’t and how they can reach orgasm quickly or slowly depending on their mood. For women, there are other ways of having an orgasm and not just by having sex, and they control their erotic destiny: they know they can come whenever they want, and that makes them more confident and relaxed lovers.
10. Say ‘no’ to routine
Stash that remote away before you leave for work so that when you return, your partner is unlikely to find it. Have some we-time - talk about your day, walk your pets together and have a leisurely drink. After dinner, serve him a special dessert after the kids go to bed - but tell him that you two must feed each other with one spoon. Add a flirty ‘you lose if...’ to the game and watch how your evening pattern takes a stimulating change.
11. Old school of thought: Both partners should be equally active in bed
New school of thought: It's absolutely fine to handover all control or take charge, eitherway.
As it is all about sexual satisfaction and pleasure, why don’t you decide which way the wind will blow? Your man will love it if you take control! However, it doesn't mean that every time you make love it has to be exactly 50/50 score. Sometimes one of you is just too beat or burned-out to have the energy for a night of vigorous sex, but you can still lie back and have some fun.
12. Work on yourself
Excite yourself before the romp with candles, music and wine as you have a better chance of peaking repeatedly, if you are already aroused. The stronger your sexual energy before someone touches you, the easier it is to have one orgasm and even multiples.
13. Ditch the time slot
Who ever said that you have to have sex only at night? It’s a restricting notion, one that will have you feeling tired and dying to hit the pillow. Say Richa, 34, “Our best sex is around seven-thirty, when my husband and I both get home from work. We are so charged that just seeing him still look handsome makes my pulses race. We strip off our clothes and have a steamy session. In fact, we both spend the afternoon looking forward to this time!” Happy hour isn't the only prime time to pounce. The timings could vary, for some it may be only weekend afternoons or but for the others, it’s the first thing pre-work. "Seven in the morning is the only time we have to ourselves, so that's when we get it on," says Anjali, 37. "From a sedate once a week to almost every morning, we are the new sexaholics on the block!"
14. Play games
What if your wife asked you if she could rub her face against your bare chest, if she could kiss your nipples and if she could undo your pants? But why would she ask for permission? Be truthful, wouldn’t you feel more aroused with each permission you were granting? Madhav agreed and said, “Part of it is hearing what she would do next, and part of it was the idea that I was actually granting her favours, like she wanted it so badly and needed to make me happy too.”
15. Eyes open wide
Try not to switch off the light tonight, as you will be turned on by what you see. Don’t be self-conscious as both men and women are stimulated by erotic visuals, according to an Archives of Sexual Behavior study. Try keeping the lights on and your eyes open (this also aids communication, as you can see what pleases your partner). Making love in front of mirrors or using video cameras is a variation on the same theme. The effort pays off. Once you begin to appreciate foreplay as an integral part of sexual satisfaction and the stronger marriage that comes with it, will always be just one short step away.
16. Crackle in the kitchen
The bedroom may get boring after a while, so change in location is sure to help. The kitchen slabs may be cold, but who has the time to think about it. Take care to keep sharp objects stashed away.
17. When you have 60 seconds
Try one of these super hot moves, made to fit any schedule!
Plan a sex Saturday: Slip into his shirt pocket a note that says, "Saturday, sex all day. Mobile phones, friends and relatives not invited. Be there in our bedroom."
Try the direct route: Take his hand, place it on your thigh - and then slide it higher, and higher...
18. Light, feathery kisses
A kiss on the hand is not the prerogative of only women, men too love being kissed on their hands. Place the tip of your tongue on the webbed area at the base of his fingers, then slowly slide your way up the side. This move will give him goose bumps because this area is as sensitive as his inner ear. This will drive him completely crazy.
19. Novel love
Be intense, be dramatic, be what you read in romance novels. Take as much time as possible. Be loving about it with a hint of nostalgia and emotion. Chances are both of your will be rejuvenated not only sexually, but emotionally as well.
20. Sleep in the buff
Skin on silk or even fine cotton is a heady combination. Try dropping your inhibitions and step by step to sleeping with no clothes on. You may find sleep difficult as you are not used to it, but trust me, it will lead to sexy dreams, a tantalizing cuddle... and plentiful more.

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday directed that trials in all the cases where accused is languishing in jail for three years or more should be expedited. The court was hearing a PIL about the status of undertrials in the state. Government representative today told the court that there are a total of 554 undertrials in the state, who are in jail for three years or more. Sixty-three of them are in jail for about five years, thirteen for seven years, and three are languishing in jail without trial for more than ten years. After hearing this, division bench of Justices Bilal Nazki and A R Joshi directed the registrar general of high court to issue a circular to magistrates and sessions judges to expedite trials in these cases. Court also asked the director general of police to ensure that undertrials are produced before courts on dates of trial. In another case, government had conceded that many times undertrials are not taken to courts on given dates, because jail authorities did not have policemen for escorting them. Asking the government to seek data of undertrials who are in jail for less than three years, court adjourned the hearing for four weeks.
