IN THIS EPISODE:
Welcome to the Ladies Dish!

The “it” List (1:58)
Joy is SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!! It’s always hard to find a shampoo and conditioner that you love and works great for your hair type. Joy finally found one she loves (even if it’s not the cleanest hippy-dippy product out there): Giovanni 2Chic Ultra Volume shampoo and conditioner
Today’s Topic: Self-Love
Why it’s important to show yourself some love (8:22):
1. You can show up as the best version of you for everyone else: your husband, baby, your family, friends, coworkers, etc. 2. You honor your self-worth… you won’t settle for less than what you deserve because you value yourself! 3. Once you learn to accept WHO you are - imperfections and all - you can be more confident and happy in your overall life 4. General appreciation for this life we are gifted!
Self-Care and Self-Love (10:33)
• When you take care of yourself, you are actively saying that you love yourself… but you have to do the work in all ways: physically, spiritually, relationally and emotionally << one that’s often forgotten about. • Really hard for ladies, especially mothers, and for our…obligers! • Self-care doesn’t have to be a big gesture… i.e. you don’t have to have an entire spa day to show yourself self-care/love. It can be as simple as laying in bed for 5 extra minutes counting your blessings in the morning.
• Self-care also looks different for everyone.
Our favorite ways to show self-care or self-love (11:41)
- Bath with epsom salt
- Talking with friends and family
- Gratitude journal
- Taking action
- Doing my hair and nails
- Practicing yoga
