Tonya Lewis Lee of Movita Organics - Part II: The Maker

How do you start your day?

I get up around 6am, I take a Movita multivitamin as soon as I wake up with a glass of water. Then I drink coffee and read the news, followed by 30 - 45 minutes of exercise. And most importantly, I eat a morning smoothie made up of blueberries, spinach, cocoa powder, turmeric and coconut water. That smoothie tastes delicious, resets anything bad from the day before and makes my cells do a dance.

Then by 10am I’m in my office getting to work or on a call with one of my business partners.

What is your wellness routine?

For me wellness begins with working out and eating well. I work out 4 - 5 days a week and no matter how much I have to force myself to do it, I always feel better afterwards. And food matters; I like to eat things that make me feel good that I know are feeding my cells.

What is a beauty product or tool you can’t live without?

Movita Beauty supplements of course!

What do you do for R&R when you need to reboot?

I rest and read; I love getting lost in a good book.

What selfcare advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?

Self-care starts with treating myself with kindness and not beating myself up over what I’m not doing, what I wish I were doing more of, or things of the past. And it is a never-ending, ongoing journey that won’t be “figured out” but will become easier to manage with time.

Do you have any beauty / wellness advice for our followers?

Take care of what’s happening inside of your body and that care will reflect outwards. Eat well and move your body.
