Take Care of Yourself First

To celebrate International Women’s Day, hosts Gina, Kat, and Krista discuss how and why women should start caring for themselves first.

The girls open the episode with how they define lifestyle and they perceive lifestyle through their careers. Gina shares the story of a woman who savors her 15 minute routine of taking off her makeup. Krista then talks about crystals – from her trivia on how quartz works on electronic frequencies in watches to how best to have kids choose the right crystal for you. Kat imparts her experience with ayurvedic food and how sound helped her heal during a meditation.

They also looked into different brands that are natural, environmentally conscious, and going back to the roots of ancient healing and self-care. They also suggested bathhouses, spas, and places with salt rooms among other facilities promoting natural soothing and healing.

From something as simple as taking care of your skin and treating yourself to good food, to trying out cryotherapy and visiting Russian bathhouses, you could practice self-care the way you want to. And you shouldn’t feel ashamed in doing so. As Gina says, the better you are to yourself, the better yourself can be to the people around you. In whatever form of self-care you enjoy and feel good about, Krista’s only advice is to do it for yourself and not for somebody else.
