Give your­self a head start into sum­mer with a health makeover for body and soul .... there’s help to make clean­ing house eas­ier too

Life & Style Weekend - - WELCOME // INSIDE TODAY -

SPRING is just around the cor­ner and de­spite the Sun­shine Coast’s at­tempt at a so-called win­ter, the team at Life&Style Week­end HQ couldn’t be more ex­cited for warmer weather and colour­ful blos­soms.

But be­fore the ex­cite­ment takes over, we’ve mapped out five things to do pre-Septem­ber so you can spring into the new sea­son in style.

Stock up on greens – Match-Sol

NEW year, new you.

Un­for­tu­nately win­ter is the num­ber one con­trib­u­tor to­wards turn­ing new year res­o­lu­tions into a bowl of triple choc fudge pud­ding.

Lucky spring is creep­ing up and with it brings a fresh dose of mid-year mo­ti­va­tion to kick start health and fit­ness goals. The golden rule for any health kick is good nutri­tion. When it comes to ramp­ing up the health scale, you can’t go wrong with some ex­tra greens.

If broc­coli and spinach make you cringe, give Match-Sol a try. This or­ganic green tea is hand picked and stone grounded into a fine pow­der to form a bright green blend of pure good­ness.

Un­like reg­u­lar green tea bags, Matcha al­lows con­sump­tion of the en­tire leaf pro­vid­ing your body with 100% of the tea leaf’s ben­e­fits.

Hail­ing from the Sun­shine Coast, Match-Sol be­lieves in sur­round­ing your­self in all things sol-full.

Think the sun, sea and seren­ity.

Top that off with a brew of Matcha-Sol and it’s a match made in healthy heaven.
