Baby Love! Blowouts! How Lisa Ling Spends Her Day Off

MORNING GLORY

On rare days off, TV journalist Lisa Ling gets to spend time with those who matter most: husband Dr. Paul Song and 3-month-old daughter Jett. "My work, shooting for Our America, requires so much travel and it's so hard to be away from her," Ling tells PEOPLE. So on non-working days, the two are almost inseparable.

Catch Ling on Our America – Special Report: Gods & Gays, airing Thursday, June 20, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

WORKING ON IT

One break from baby? A visit to pal Shin's beauty parlor, aptly named Shin's Salon, in Santa Monica, Calif. However, work can call even when Ling takes five in the stylist's chair.

FEELING PAMPERED

It's not all business, though! "I might indulge and get a scalp massage and haircut," Ling shares. "I love catching up with everyone at the salon and I always leave feeling great."

SUCH A JOY

An even greater feeling comes from hanging at home again with Jett. "I spend most of my day playing with [her]," Ling says.

STEP BY STEP

But after baby time, it's workout time. "I like to stay in shape and when I have a free moment I try to squeeze in some Bikram yoga or do the Santa Monica stairs," the OWN star says. "The latter is super-rigorous and, best of all, free!"

"She's growing too fast," Ling laments of her little girl, born March 8. "Before you know it, she'll be walking!"
