The 10 Least Stressful Jobs for 2010:
1.    Musical Instrument Repairer

The list looks pretty standard without any big surprises…except for real estate agent.  Aside from the competitive nature of the field and a crappy economy, I fail to see the stress and/or risk with the occupation. 

Whether you have one of the most stressful jobs or not, learn how to quit your job gracefully and not end up in need of stress treatment.

Also, I’m sure being a medical records technician is less stressful than attending medical billing schools and working with insurance forms all day!
