It almost sounds too good to be true, but researchers say these are the highest paying jobs that will fill up your bank account without leaving you awake at night. 

Business Insider has teamed up with “career-information expert” Laurence Shatkin to determine the top 25 jobs by looking at information in a US Department of Labor database. 

Stress tolerance for each job is rated on a scale of zero to 100, with high-paying jobs that sit at the 70 mark or lower making the list.  

Jobs that pay over $70K USD a year are considered ‘high-paying jobs’.  

The information is based on US statistics, so if you work in any of these role, please let us know if this rings true to you here in Australia!
