The aim of the study is to examine the relation between lifestyle, including physical activity, and voice emission competence - taking into account the sense of voice handicap – of students who are preparing for teaching career in physical education and early childhood education. Materials and methods. The study comprised 176 female students. The following research tools were used: Voice Handicap Index (VHI), Health Beliefs Scale (SPZ – HF/BM), Life Orientation Questionnaire (SOC -29), I-E Rotter’s Scale and the survey Students’ Lifestyle. Results. On the basis of VHI study we can conclude that the overall assessment of voice handicap is satisfactory. To a large extent, it was influenced by healthy behaviour and factors which support them. Findings. There is a relation between one’s lifestyle and voice emission difficulties. The students of Physical Education, participating in physical activity programmes have better vocal predisposition. They also display the highest level of healthy behaviour. The students of pedagogy experience slight voice handicap. The PhD students who are professionally voice – active experience the biggest voice handicap. With time and with inappropriate work of vocal apparatus, the real threats increase and can make the voice – active work of a teacher impossible
