Suggestions:
-Accounting (you'd have to pass their test, but I think it'd be cake for you)
-Product Manager
-"Business Analyst" (this can mean literally anything but it's a good thing to search for while you're looking)

I totally understand what you mean about your job being stressful and others saying it shouldn't be. From what I've been told, being an actuary at an insurance company should be almost stress-free, but that definitely hasn't been my experience. I would say that no matter what you decide you should ask a lot of questions in the interview(s) about the work environment. No one's going to flat out tell you that their job is utter stress, but they'll probably evade your question or tell you that it "can be hectic" and then you'd know.
