People are often looking for occupations that pay well and don’t cause a lot of stress, and the most stress-free job may surprise you. If  you really want to be stress-free, become a college professor.

That’s right, while being a college student can be extremely stressful, being a college professor, according to CareerCast.com, tops all other professions for the least amount of stress in America in 2013.

“The field’s high growth opportunities, low health risks and substantial pay provide a low-stress environment that’s the envy of many career professionals,” the career site reports.

The next least stressful occupation was tailor/seamstress.

“Unfortunately,” the site goes on to say, “the monetary incentive for seamstresses and tailors is low – the (U.S. Bureau of Labor) estimates the median salary for a seamstress at $25,850 annually, while the median salary for a University Professor is $62,050.

“Yet low safety risks, less physical demands than most other careers and peaceful work environment make working with fabric and thread one of the least stressful for 2013.”

The top ten least stressful occupations list did feature some jobs in the medical field, including medical records technician, medical laboratory technician, audiologist and dietitian.

“That’s good news for job seekers in the current economic environment, because the healthcare industry is expected to be the highest growth sector in the next decade,” the site said.

Still, education, surprising to some, is actually the least stressful field.

“Education in the United States is still best in the world,” Aaron Barlow, Assistant Professor of Literature at New York City College of Technology told the website. “People from all over the world want to come [to the U.S.] to study.”
