LIFE IS ALL ABOUT BALANCE WITH BROOKE MEREDITH
IN CONVERSATION WITH: MARNEY JURY FROM SUM OF US
Founder. Editor in chief. Certified wellness coach. Model. Creative Director. Is there anything Brooke Meredith can’t do? If you’ve ever sat down at a Melbourne cafe, you’ve probably spotted her hugely successful (and free!) magazine, A Conscious Collection, where her team of experts dish out health advice for every area of life.
After a whirlwind year and a stint in Los Angeles, Brooke managed to squeeze us into her very busy schedule to chat about something we totally relate to: creating a balanced life.

CHECKING IN: 6 LUXE AUSTRALIAN WELLNESS RETREATS
Aren’t podcasts the best? Before they were invented, we’d have to slave away in front of a computer screen or scour through books, attempting to research and learn about a topic we were interested in. Now, we’re able to learn about absolutely anything we want… for free… at the touch of a button… while we’re driving a car. We have access to the world’s top leaders and their pearls of wisdom in every category, from beauty to business, sports to spirituality.
One of our favourite topics to learn about on-the-go is health. Need some advice on nutrition, recipes or food intolerances? No problem. How about exercise tips from an expert trainer? Just here. Keen to learn some strategies to boost your happiness, clear your mind and reduce stress? Right this way…
Private jacuzzis, buffet breakfast, massages and facials on demand… It sounds like a typical day on board a cruise or overseas holiday, but it’s actually the itinerary of a remote health and wellness retreat, for those of us who need to recharge our batteries.
Whether you’re constantly feeling run down and burnt out, need to overhaul your diet or are struggling with a major life event, a health and wellness retreat can help to reboot your mind, body and life through a series of daily activities, therapies and nutrition.
Of course, a bit of luxury never goes astray, so we’ve put together our top six luxe wellness getaways that you’ll want to check into ASAP.
