When was the last time you said, "Man, I wish I had a less stressful job!"

For most workers, the grass always seems greener on the other side. Higher pay often makes other jobs sound more attractive than your current position, but they could be very stressful.

Careercast is out with its annual list of the least stressful jobs of 2013. Number one is a university professor. Careercast credits high growth opportunities for professors, low health risks and good pay.

Next up is a seamstress or a tailor, followed by medical records technician and jewelers. Rounding out the top five is a medical lab technician. Also on the list of low stress jobs, audiologists, dietitians, hair stylists, librarians and a very unlikely one: a drill press operator.
