Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Try to set a good example at home by reducing electronic media use for entertainment. Turn off the TV - especially at meal times - and make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Try to remember to switch off distractions like your phone while talking with your kids - it'll remind them that they're important to you.

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Instead of watching TV, put on some music or play an audio book - these activities can be great for your kids' imaginations.

  • Consider a regular family catch up. Enjoying good relationships with family, friends and the wider community will benefit your whole family’s wellbeing.
