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.

  • 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.

  • Doing physical activity as a family will help you all to stick to your new routine - it's much more fun being active together!

  • Every trip to the park, or even your backyard, can be a new adventure if you can just add a little creativity into the mix. Break out your kids' favourite superhero costumes - or make a costume together with your kids - then head to the park or the backyard with your own Little League of Superheroes!

  • Being a parent or carer is a bit like throwing your life up into the air and then catching extra bits on the way down. So one of your best sources of help, support and friendship is likely to be other parents to share your joys, frustrations and concerns with.
