If you’re anything like us, facing the working week is always that much easier when you feel like your home (and life) is in order. This usually means doing household tasks on a Sunday. However, housework doesn’t need to be a dreaded snooze fest if you follow these tips! 🧤 1. Put on some music. We all know time flies when you’re having fun and so why not put on your favorite music to sing and dance to and have at it while folding the laundry, cleaning the bathroom or washing the dishes! 🧤 2. Call someone. Put them on speaker and chat to your Mum, friend or anyone else you’ve been meaning to catch up with. 🧤 3. Open a window and let the sunlight in. It’s simple, but often times getting some sun into a room along with fresh air can not only make your home environment more welcoming, but it has a positive effect on your mood too! 🧤 4. Burn a candle or use a diffuser. Remember that beautiful candle you got for your birthday but is now sitting unopened on your dresser? Well, light that shit up and enjoy the aroma! Same goes for the diffuser and oils you paid a fortune for and don’t use either! 🧤 5. Bake! Make a batch of cookies or brownies and while they are baking, see what chores you can get done...then afterwards, you have a delicious reward to look forward too! 🧤 6. Exercise. Look, don’t hate us for putting this one in. But you can incorporate those squats or push ups you’ve been meaning to do whilst waiting for the microwave to finish or in between dusting rooms. You’ll feel better for it! 🧤 7. While folding laundry or ironing, make a cuppa, put on Netflix and catch up on your favorite show. 🧤 8. Multitask and put on a face mask while vacuuming for a little extra pampering. 🧤 9. Buy a cute pair of slippers, gloves or an apron to brighten your mood while cleaning so you feel less frump and more fab! 🧤 10. Talk to and play with your pets. Bless their little souls, all they want is your attention and so why not play hide and seek under the covers with your cat while making the bed or throw a ball to Rover when raking leaves or sweeping the patio. They’ll love you for it! 🧤 #workinggirlsguideto #home #sunday #inspiration #fun #clean #

It is always awkward to approach your boss for a payrise, particularly when you feel you deserve more than what you are being paid. Here are some tips on helping to negotiate a payrise. ⠀ ⠀ BE PROFESSIONAL⠀ Even if you are friendly with your boss, this is a business negotiation and should be treated accordingly. ⠀ ⠀ ASK AROUND THE NEW FINANCIAL YEAR⠀ This is when most businesses are determining their budgets for the following year and will make it easier to account therefore easier to obtain.⠀ ⠀ RESEARCH THE MARKET⠀ This will help justify how similar positions in your industry are paid.⠀ ⠀ “FINANCIAL ISSUES” ⠀ If you’re told that the company is facing financial issues, then ask for a review in three months – and make sure you follow through. Persistence is key afterall. ⠀ ⠀ DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK⠀ Just like the age-old saying “If you don’t ask, you don’t get”.⠀ ⠀ Managers are often too busy doing their own work to note down all ofyour achievements. Be your own best advocate and document why you deserve a payrise. This will make it easier and more effective in your negotiations.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #workinggirlsguideto #working #girls #workinggirls #girlboss #women #career #office #payrise #wage #salary #negotiating
