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!


  • Consider joining a community group or club in your local area. You could try anything from a sporting group to a special interest group for things like photography, craft or cooking. Go to the Connect and Participate Expo to find a club for you and your family.

  • Often it is hard to have everyone in the same place for every meal. Try mapping out on the calendar every meal you will aim to eat together this month and stick to it!

  • Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal together to avoid any distractions.

  • Twirling and running with streamers is a fun, active game the kids will love. Make sure you join in too!

  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.
