Would you rather work an easy stress free job or persue something difficult snd stressful for a much better salary?
I think about this way too much in my career. Career progression means more money but of course hard work and stress. A relaxed job seems nice sometimes even if its way less money.

Does anyone else feel this way?

The most stress free job in the world used to be a Librarian

Then even those were ‘sacked’, redeployed elsewhere

Typically, in my career , I have had to start working in a new area every five years or so, on average, I specifically sought a very large multinational company, >60K employees, so that there would be many different ‘new areas’

And finally, I only consider those things stressful that I have some control over, no point worrying & raising cortisol levels over something that you can’t affect. Cortisol is the stress hormone that is released shortly before you wake-up, being awake is mildly stressful!

The best thing is if you can manage to marry someone with a well paid (but stressful) job while working a relatively low paid but low stress job yourself

It doesn’t matter to me. I want a job where I feel happy and like I am making a difference - stress does not bother me when I feel these things.
