A new study conducted online by Harris Interactive suggests that professions involving high stress levels have a higher percentage of workers putting on extra pounds.
To be honest, at Bright Side was quite surprised to find some occupations on that list.
1. Travel agent
These people need to try their best to please each customer, planning and organizing their trips. The process involves much pressure and stress because, apart from clients’ needs, there are always sales targets travel agents have to reach. Plus, the role involves hours of sitting.
In this field, stress and pressure are common things. So eating because of anxiety and not controlling portions and calorie counts make it one of the jobs most likely to make you gain weight.
3. Social worker
Just like travel agents, social workers spend too many hours sitting. They often eat at their desks and almost never have the opportunity to take part in exercise or any physical activities during their working day.
When you hear the word "teacher," what image comes to mind first? A person sitting at a desk, right? Teachers sometimes sit at their desks while giving lectures, and they also do all their administrative work while sitting: preparing for their classes, grading, checking attendance, etc.
5. Artist, designer, and architect
These occupations go hand in hand with flexible hours and independent work. Since such professionals mostly rely on creativity and inspiration, they don’t have to stick to strict schedules. The same applies to their meals. They eat when they want, and they work while sitting.
