Issues For Judges

A judge's gavel and law books


Stress is an expected part of daily life today. It is also one of the most preventable and treatable causes of many major illnesses if addressed. Reducing or managing stress can be challenging, but it can also be life-saving. Recognizing the signs of stress and seeking solutions are the first steps towards avoiding stress-related problems.

Some signs of stress include:

  • Headaches, other physical aches, fatigue or sleep difficulties
  • Difficulty making decisions or constant worry
  • Feeling more isolated, lonely and less social than normal
  • Feeling nervous, irritable, anxious or short tempered

Experiencing any of the above may be a reason to call Judges’ Assistance for stress management.
