Americans are stressed out. And their jobs are not making things any easier. While a certain amount of stress is normal in the workplace, massive pressure can be detrimental to a person’s health. High levels of job stress are linked to increased rates of heart attack, hypertension, and other disorders, The American Institute of Stress reported.

Not all jobs are equal, though. Certain professions are far less stressful than others, according to data gathered by U.S. News & World Report. While we can’t always switch jobs, it is interesting to see which industries rank low in terms of stress levels.

Factors such as salary, security and job growth all come into play when it comes to work pressure, which is what U.S. News & World Report used as the basis of its review to determine the least stressful jobs that still paid well. Here we look at 9 of them:

1. Anthropologist. There are growing opportunities within this field. Anthropologists can work in various roles, from researchers to professors and museum curators. The median salary is $62,410 and the projected job growth is estimated to be 4% by 2026. A master’s degree or doctorate is required for qualification.

2. Environmental Science and Protection Technician. With a median salary of $46,170 and a projected job growth of 12% by 2026, this field comes with low levels of stress and promising prospects. Qualification requires an associate degree.

3. Bookkeeping, Accounting and Audit Clerk. Keeping track of financial transactions for companies may seem stressful but this profession is surprisingly not. The median salary is $40,240 contributes and projections indicate a decline in these jobs of only 1% by 2026. A post-secondary coursework in accounting is required in order to qualify.

4. Insulation Contractor. Free from the confines of an office, insulation contractors earn a median salary of $41,910 by regulating temperatures in homes, offices and buildings. The projected job growth by 2026 is 5% for this profession. Qualification requires a high school degree.

5. Cartographer. Working for government and private companies, gathering geographic data to reproduce in useful ways, has its perks. Mapmakers earn a median salary of $64,430 and the projected job growth for 2026 is 19%. To qualify, a bachelor's degree is required.

6. Painter. There is job satisfaction in beautifying buildings and other surfaces. Doing it outside an office helps. Median salary is $38,940 with projected job growth of 6% by 2026. No qualification is needed for this low-stress job.

7. Archaeologist. Earning a median salary of $62,410 for excavating former settlements and digging for art, tools and skeletal remains make the job of an archeologist very un-stressful, even if there is a projected job growth of 4% by 2026. A master’s degree or doctorate is required for qualification.

8. Hearing Aid Specialist. By testing patient's hearing and adjusting aids and devices accordingly, these health care workers are earning a median salary of $52,770 in this relatively low-stress job. It helps that the projected job growth will climb to 20% by 2026, and that a high school degree is required for qualification.

9. Massage Therapist-. Ironically, the role of a massage therapist is in essence stress relief, but workers in the field are among those who are the least stressed out in the workplace. Massage therapists earn a median salary of $41,420 and the field has a projected job growth of 26% by 2026. A post-secondary certification is required for certification.
