Glassdoor's list of top jobs for work-life balance is based entirely on workers' feedback.

If you feel overwhelmed trying to find a healthy balance between work and your personal life, you’re not alone.

America is by-and-large a country of worker bees. Americans spend roughly 38.6 hours in the office a week, which leaves little time for fun or family. Plus, less than half of American workers took a vacation this past summer.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Career website Glassdoor recently released a list of the 29 best jobs for work-life balance. The list is based entirely on feedback the site has received from workers over the past year.

Glassdoor says these are the 14 top-ranked jobs for workers seeking a balance between their jobs and their lives. The average work-life balance rating on Glassdoor is 3.2. The number of job openings reflects active job listings on Glassdoor as of Sept. 15:
