Nigerian Judges and other legal practitioners across the country have been advised to take care of their mental health to improve their wellbeing and quality of life.
A wellness and mental health advocate and founder, The Dew Centre Lagos, Omon Anenih-Mordi, made the appeal at the weekend during the 16th international maritime seminar for judges organised by the Nigerian Shippers’ Council in Abuja.
Anenih-Mordi, a lawyer, said the workload being undertaken by the judges in the dispensation of justice and upholding the rights of all under the constitution could be challenging and lead to occupational stress.
 
She noted that stress had become an issue when it begins to affect daily functioning and inhibiting a person from living his or her best life, saying that out of 105 professions studied by Johns Hopkins University, lawyers and judges top the list in the incidence of major depression.
 
The wellness expert, who noted that the theme was to create a conversation about judicial wellness, urged judges to engage in practising healthy habits on a regular basis with the aim of attaining better physical and mental health outcomes.
She also admonished other participants to cultivate the habit of improving sitting posture by keeping the feet flat or resting them either on the floor or footrest. 
 
Besides, she cautioned against sitting down for a long period at a time.
