Same here. I’ve found it very challenging to balance needing to be not bored with not stressed. Personally, if you have a higher education, I’d say stick with that direction and look for the right environment where you can work with your manager to manage the stress and develop techniques to handle it. Yes this is a lot to ask in some fields, but it sounds like you have useful skills that will be very advantageous in the right place. You may need to be proactive and challenge yourself in your job to make it rewarding, rather than expecting the job itself to challenge you. Good luck!
