talk it out

How good are you at having difficult conversations? Some of us are quick to voice our opinions – occasionally followed by intense regret. Others will studiously avoid a conflict, only to lie awake thinking ‘I wish I’d said…’ Like it or not, we each come at life with a different point of view. Sometimes that’s exciting and other times it most definitely rubs us up the wrong way. So how do we all get along in spite of this? And what’s the best way to have a constructive discussion from the other side of the fence?

WHAT’S GOOD I have been a Good Health subscriber for years and each edition is full of fabulous tips and content, which is so relevant and often eerily timely. My family and I have been through a difficult 18 months, which tested me emotionally and physically. Over the years your magazine has equipped me with tools and advice, helping me to compartmentalise bad things, and focus on the good in my life – which is so often obscured by negative thoughts. In the June issue, Kylie Gillies reminded me that good health and the love of family and friends, is more important than anything else.

sweet escape

‘Sometimes you just have to change your entire life for love’ ‘I KNOW THIS DAILY VISUAL HAS A POSITIVE EFFECT ON ME. MY SOUL. IT’S BLISSFUL’ After more than 20 years at the helm of Australia’s favourite travel show, Getaway, Catriona Rowntree has earned her title of ‘Australia’s Most Travelled Woman.’ Criss-crossing the globe several times over, she has transported us to some of the most far-flung destinations on earth.

But while she’s been fortunate enough to see more of the world than most of us could ever hope to, after two decades in the biz – and after getting hitched, relocating to the country, and becoming a mum to two young…
