Stress is a normal part of our daily lives. Faced with an excess of environmental demands related to the person’s very source of satisfaction, the person feels unable to resolve them. In order to find out if someone adapts well to the stress in an environment, researchers have developed a tool called “Stressful Life Events”. Specialized literature offers many theoretical models to explain and understand work related stress. It is virtually impossible to provide a single and complete list of stressors and their consequences, especially if we bear in mind that the definition of stressor depends on the individual appraising a specific situation as such. The environment in which people live influences their health and their physical, psychological and social wellbeing. The stressors originating in the workplace affect the individual’s personal and professional life, creating problems within the family on both the personal and professional levels.
