February 20, 2012

CNBC put together a list of the most stressful jobs in 2012 and guess what? Being an Event Coordinator came in 7th.. after being a soldier, firefighter, airline pilot and army general. Points were awarded on the amount of travel, competitiveness, physical demands, risk to life or health and working in the public eye. Hmmm. No wonder, I crave doing yoga!

On the flip side, the least stressful job is a Medical Records Technician. I think I’ll stick with what I love doing, stress or no stress!

Here’s the list in its entirety:
