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.

  • Make a pledge to limit your family's screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • Consider a regular family catch up. Enjoying good relationships with family, friends and the wider community will benefit your whole family’s wellbeing.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to be together and enjoy eating.
