Having A Bad Boss Will Affect Your Home Life & Can Even Hurt Your Heart

Having a bad boss in the office is one thing, but new research has found that it can also have a negative affect on your private life at home, and even increase your risk for heart disease.
According to a story at The Atlantic, employees who felt their autonomy and their contributions were respected reported higher morale and better on-the-job performance. Employees who felt like their boss didn't trust them to do the work they were assigned, or who "motivated" them by making them feel bad for not being more productive were the most stressed out, and subsequently took that stress home with them, where it overflowed into their personal lives and relationships.
In addition, a Swedish study had found a health correlation between terrible bosses and their employees health, mainly an increased risk for heart attacks, heart disease, and angina and death from heart-related causes. If that's not a sign to quit, we don't know what is!
