    Stress can be described as a motion triggered by a negative change which interferes with a person’s inner stability, so activating the potential of adaptation. It is an important part of our lives as well as an inevitable consequence in our relation with the ever changing social environment to which we must adapt. An individual’s reaction to these stressors depends on his psychophysical constitution, past experience and the given circumstances. The outgoing character and the way they care for others are the reasons why people choose to work in helping professions. The endurance of professionals depends on their personal qualities as well as on the working environment and general public's relation. There are different strategies of effective stress management: personal strategies, social strategies and preventive strategies. When stress is properly handled an individual’s physical and psychological capabilities come together. Good mental health is conditioned by good physical health and adaptability and vice versa. Doing sports is one of the most efficient and favored personal strategies of stress management.
