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 using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often each family member spends in front of a screen. Using the television, electronic games, portable electronic devices or computers for entertainment can quickly add up.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Why not play dress ups with the kids using those old clothes you never wear? Use your imagination to act out different roles.

  • 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.
