Finding the right work-life balance can be difficult, but there are jobs where you can make above-average pay without being attached to your work like a magnet.

With the help of data acquired from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and independent research, U.S. News & World Report found 10 jobs that have below-average stress levels with a median income of at least $50,000 — and room to grow.

Survey researchers interviewed professionals across different industries to determine that jobs like archaeologists, web developers, and statisticians were some of the top occupations if you were trying to find more pay at less of a physical and mental toll.

But the top job was orthodontists. The median salary was $208,000 with job growth expected to rise by 7% by 2028. With many orthodontics working for themselves or a practice that operates on a normal work schedule, it makes it an ideal situation for those looking for more balance. However, it takes many degrees to get there as you must become a dentist before going back to school for additional education.
