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!


  • Try to remember to switch off distractions like your phone while talking with your kids - it'll remind them that they're important to you.

  • Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family - and with so much technology around it's easy to lose track of time. Try allocating specific time periods for media use - preferably not during daylight hours when you can be active outdoors instead - to limit your family's screen time.

  • Kids aged five and over should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than two hours per day.

  • It can be as simple as going for a family walk - it's a fun way to be active while spending time talking together.

  • Looking for a community or sporting group for you and your family to join is one way to meet new people with similar interest to yours. Check out ACT Communities Online to see if there is a group that suits your family.
