why can’t i fall asleep even when i’m tired? — rob

The idea that exhaustion can prevent shut-eye might be counter-intuitive, but your fatigued brain isn’t playing tricks on you. “Overtiredness” occurs when your mind and body are out of sync: you’re mentally burned out but not physically ready to hit the hay. This is the difference between fatigue, which is corporeal, and sleepiness, which is the inability to stay awake. “The frenetic pace of modern life means we’re often in danger of depleting our mental energy without taxing our bodies,” says Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, the author of Fast Asleep, Wide Awake. “The result is that we end up tired but wired.” Training when you’re brain-dead might be the last thing you want to do, but you need exercise. “After a stressful day, your body continues to produce excess adrenalin,” says Ramlakhan. “A…

A COLLEAGUE ALWAYS MAKES DISCRIMINATORY JOKES, BUT INSISTS THERE IS NO MALICIOUS INTENT. WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT? Your colleague’s discriminatory “jokes” may be an example of harassment. According to the Protection Against Harassment Act 2014 (POHA), regardless of whether your colleague intended to be malicious, it does not change the fact that they may be liable for harassment. If their remarks were threatening, abusive or insulting, and if they had communicated such remarks to others who heard it, your colleague’s behaviour may constitute as harassment. If you have felt harassed or alarmed by your colleague’s remarks, you are entitled to bring a civil claim against them. If they’re found guilty by the court, they may be fined up to $5,000. If it is subsequently found that they had made those…

There’s a very good reason they’re called “supplements”. Popping a multivitamin with your plate of chips is no replacement for a proper meal. Aside from their lack of dietary fibre, calories and fats, synthetic nutrients are not utilised by your body quite so easily as those from wholefoods. “Some pills disintegrate too slowly for your body to fully absorb the vitamins,” says nutritionist James White. However, using tablets as a daily top-up can be a sensible strategy. “I see supplementation as an insurance policy,” says White. “They’re a nutritional safety net for when you run into natural deficiencies – vitamin D, for example, can often be hard to obtain through food and sunlight alone.”…

from strength to strength

We couldn’t imagine a bodybuilder chatting it up with Johnny Carson until we saw him on The Tonight Show. We couldn’t imagine someone with 21-inch (53cm) biceps as the highest-paid actor in show business until we saw him in Conan the Barbarian. We couldn’t imagine the guy who was so convincing as a killer robot in The Terminator becoming governor of California. Yet here we are, decades later, and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s journey, from Austrian meathead to Hollywood legend, is one of the all-time top American success stories. It contains some amazing highs (seven-time Mr. Olympia, SGD$6.8 billion box-office gross, two-time governor of California) and some low, low lows (steroids, Gropergate, a very public divorce), but through it all he’s always been Arnold. Since exiting public office in 2011, Schwarzenegger has juggled…
