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!


  • Dinner time can sometimes be too difficult at the end of a busy day - why not start a day together as a family? Eating together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!

  • Consider joining a community group or club in your local area. You could try anything from a sporting group to a special interest group for things like photography, craft or cooking. Go to the Connect and Participate Expo to find a club for you and your family.

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

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often each family member spends in front of a screen. Using the television, electronic games, portable electronic devices or computers for entertainment can quickly add up.
