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 mixing it up a bit and let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • 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. 

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

  • Try volunteering in your local community. You can help a cause that interests you, and can offer as little or as much of your time as you like.

  • Encourage polite and respectful behaviour at meal times. Try to wait until everyone is seated before you start eating.
