Most people have a similar goal when it comes to finding the ideal job — finding something that pays well, and has good work life balance. Ideally, it’s a job that is low stress. But, as we all know, it’s hard enough to find a job that hits one of these requirements, let alone both.

Well, the Bureau of Labor Statistics did extensive interviews on this topic and US News & World Report put together a report of their findings, identifying jobs that pay above the national median income of around $50,000, that employees also identified as low stress.
