An Expert in Healthcare Delivery, Mrs Morounmubo Adekunle has urged the women in the media industry to pay greater attention to their health through regular medical assessments, exercise and intake of balanced diets to enhance their physical and mental well-being.
She gave the advice in a presentation on Stress management Tips delivered at the monthly congress of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists, NAWOJ, Ogun State Chapter.
Mrs Adekunle, who is a Nursing Officer at the federal Medical Center, FMC Idi Aba Abeokuta said the poor attitude of women to medical examinations, plus the burden of meeting the demands of their social and economic life were taking a toll on their healthy living.
The Chief Nursing Officer who noted that every challenge was surmountable advised the women to identify individual’s sources of stress and make conscious efforts to gradually shed the burden while embracing rest as a necessary therapy.
In a remark, the State Chairperson of NAWOJ, Mrs Modupeola Sobukonla pointed out that the leadership of the association was concerned in particular about enhancing the health and welfare of members.
Mrs Sobukonla also promised that the regular Congress of the association would be a platform for adding value to the members through educative talks and training as well as celebration of all members having birthdays during the month.
