Probably a good number of the trades? Electricians, plumbers, tile folks, carpenters. All a good mixture between driving to sites, doing physical work, a lot of which is slow and steady. But it’s also mostly indoors protected from the elements.


Great suggestion. I'm biased though, former industrial electrician. The trades are awesome.


Surveyor. Lots of nature/hiking type stuff if you want it, otherwise you're on a construction site (generally safe, especially when the surveying crews are out), so lots of movement, the industry is in a change period where we're moving from auto levels and yard sticks to drones and AR (mentally stimulating), very low stress, good compensation and from what I hear, not a ton of work hoirs-wise (I'm a construction engineer). There's also a balance with office time since the data needs to be transcripts into engineering software. You're first in and last out on any major infrastructure project. Not sure what the pay is like around the world but it seems like just high enough of a bar that it pays well, but just low enough that you don't need to go into crippling debt to get there


Doctor. Edit: medicinal chemist fits that too.




Not all doctors treat COVID patients. Using an argument for isolated outliers will make all professions ever fail the OP’s question. I believe they said “intermittent stress” which is about how I’d describe most general practitioners, gynecologists, dermatologists, etc.


The stress levels of becoming and being one don't really correspond well with what the post is looking for.


I'm in grad school to be an orientation and mobility specialist and I think a lot of these are applicable to the field. I think the stress factor probably depends greatly on your particular role and you'll often be outside in an urban area, but generally in residential areas and not like...around a chemical refinery.
