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!


  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! Check out our Resources for ideas to get you going.

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • Plan your meals before the week gets busy and get the kids involved with setting the table and preparing the food. Not only will your kids benefit from better eating habits, your whole family will get the opportunity to speak to each other without any other distractions.

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

  • Sitting on the couch or in front of a screen and mindlessly eating can seem like the easy option some days, but it can mean we're not paying attention to what or how much we're eating. Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal with your family to avoid any distractions.
