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!


  • Get cooking. Make your favourite dinner together or maybe just a tasty after-school snack.

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

  • If your family finds it hard to disconnect from digital media, try putting your laptop, smartphone and other devices in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight.

  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there's free classes you can do or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.
