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!


  • As a parent, your life often gets caught up with various parenting "stuff". Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking in a coffee date with a friend into your diary or catching up for some adult conversation. Your kids will learn that fostering friendships is important.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there are free classes or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.

  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.

  • After school one day, why not have a surprise picnic with the kids and chat with them about their day at school?

  • 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.
