A new study reveals that while most women don’t negotiate when it comes to a new job offer — those who try to get more money were generally successful.
In a study of 1,008 adult women produced for HuffPost, Yahoo, and CARE by Langer Research Associates, 64% said they did not try to negotiate their pay the last time they were hired.
But out of those who did negotiate, a whopping 71% said they were generally successful. “Shark Tank” investor Barbara Corcoran recently told Yahoo Finance, “As a boss, I can tell you, everybody’s got another $5,000, $10,000 in their pocket — trust me.”
Focus and prioritization are key to protecting your time and avoiding burnout. In fact, Georgetown University professor Cal Newport — author of the new book Digital Minimalism — recently told The New York Times about his term “deep work,” explaining that it’s “the activity of focusing without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It describes, in other words, when you’re really locked into doing something hard with your mind,” adding that this requires “zero distractions.”
Feeling heard and valued in the workplace shouldn’t be an impossible accomplishment. If you know your company down to the smallest detail and you work hard, your perspective has the potential to shape and mold the future success of everyone affiliated with that company.
Despite the knowledge that you’re working for the greater good, it may not always be easy to get your ideas out of your head and into the real world. A carefully crafted approach can help you find the confidence you need to enrich the professional interests of those around you.

Water is essential — it regulates the shape of every cell inside our bodies. If we don’t get enough, in fact, these cells begin to shrivel up. The CDC recommends choosing waterinstead of sugar-sweetened beverages to “help with weight management.”
Let the soreness begin! If strong arms and toned legs are one of your goals, grab a pair of dumbbells — this workout is gonna kick your butt (and your arms and legs!). You can do this workout anywhere, any time, as long as you have your trusty set of dumbbells and 20 minutes.
To make this workout even more effective, Jade Jenny, head CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit, said to have two sets of dumbbells on hand (one medium and one heavy), so you can keep the loading more balanced since some moves will be easier for you.
The repetition of similar exercises is meant to increase your physical and mental endurance, and it's up to you how hard you want to make this workout. For the ultimate challenge, use heavier weights and push your pace. I did this workout in CrossFit and loved it because it was quick and fun and my arms and legs were sore the next couple of days.
Have you ever noticed a difference in how you feel when drinking cold versus room temperature water? If not, there's a good chance you at least have a preference for one or the other, when it comes to what you reach for when you're thirsty. And there are several possible reasons for that.
The stomach reacts differently to cold water, than it does to warm, which can in turn affect digestion. The temperature of water can also impact your circulation, according to experts, and can even contribute to things like headaches. When it comes to hydration, though, it's important to keep in mind that water is water, no matter the temp.
