“If you’re here because your honeypot is unhappy, I’ve been there,” writes Bea Dixon, founder and CEO of The Honey Pot Company, the first plant-based feminine-care system, on her site’s About page. This notion served as a catalyst in starting her company.

Wake up and drink two large glasses of room temperature water infused with lemon or lime.
Sometimes I meditate before I work out for at least five to 10 minutes. I then work out with my trainer through FaceTime.
I meditate after my workouts so I can be still and allow my body to rest. I just picked up the habit of writing at least one thing that I’m grateful for, and that’s normally right after my meditation.
I am also obsessed with essential oils, which is why I slather Vitruvi lavender oil on my body before getting my day going!
I make myself a cup of coffee. My favorite is the Stumptown Coffee Roasters Hundred Mile Jam & Toffee Flavor. I like my coffee to be on the lighter side, so I use Chobani Extra Creamy Oat Milk and Truvia or agave to sweeten. I also drink another glass of water.
Afterward, I eat breakfast. My current favorite is Just Eggs with avocado and greens on the side with sundried tomatoes.
I go to my porch office because it’s beautiful and green and I love the birds singing. It's my favorite place to work! From here, I'm on calls and speaking engagements for the rest of the day.
