There’s no doubt that our jobs are a major source of stress.  In fact, according to a recent poll, 30% of U.S. workers say they are “always” or “often” under stress at work.  However, some jobs are more stressful than others.  Here’s a list of the 10 most stressful jobs in the U.S. (according to CareerCast.com).

  1. Enlisted Military
  2. Military General
  3. Firefighter
  4. Commercial Airline Pilot
  5. PR Executive
  6. Senior Executive
  7. Photo-Journalist
  8. Newspaper Reporter
  9. Taxi Driver
  10. Police Officer

If you hold any of these jobs, it’s critical that you take good care of yourself in order to avoid burnout.  Take a look at this Info-Graphic on Stress and Your Health (http://www.bestpsychologydegrees.org/stress-and-your-health/ ).  In particular, review the Stress-Busters at the bottom of the page, which list great tips on how to relax and alleviate job stress.
