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.

  • On long car trips be aware of screen time and switch off for a set time. Play fun games like making words out of other cars' number plates, 'I spy', or you can all sing along to music (making sure to change the rhyming words to make it a funny song).

  • For many of us, it can be hard to stay on top of everything in such a busy schedule. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with others and the kids can come along and run around.

  • Try to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are 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.
