Georgie Gardner features on the cover of the April/May issue of Prevention and reveals her secrets to health and happiness in an interview with editor Andrea Duvall.

When it comes to keeping a positive outlook, the newsreader says going for a walk with her Portuguese Water Dog Wilbur always lifts her mood.

"There's nothing like taking the dog for a walk, getting back into nature, taking a deep breath and realising that, in the scheme of things, life is pretty damn good," she reveals.

Georgie's also does yoga a few times a week, which she calls a 'game changer', has a weekly session with a personal trainer and the occasional acupuncture session. 

Here are eight more things that bring her joy and keep her glowing.  

Beauty secret?

I’ve always been really religious about good care of my skin. I’ve been using Dr Spiller for the past couple of years. I love the Collagen Cream, which I use every day.

Secret to looking fresh when you feel exhausted?

I wear white. On and off screen.

Signature dish?

My husband is the cook in our house, but I pride myself on making a mean carrot cake with wicked cream cheese icing.

How to keep the spark alive after 19 years of marriage?

Be kind to each other, be forgiving and don’t take each other for granted.

Podcast recommendation?

The Five Of My Life by Nigel Marsh, where interesting people talk about their favourite book, song, movie, place and possession.

Best book you’ve read lately?

In the height of the pandemic, I read Julia Baird’s [personal development book] Phosphorescence. It brought me a lot of comfort, calm and hope.

Favourite holiday spot?

Anywhere in Italy, because it’s my favourite country. But I love that we’re now all focusing on the incredible places in Australia. I grew up in Western Australia, and the Margaret River region is extraordinary.

What motto do you live by?

‘The greatest risk is not taking a risk.’ I never want to die wondering, so I think what’s the worst thing that can happen? Even if it doesn’t go the way you had hoped, you learn from it.
