Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


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

  • Regular physical activity helps to reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu.

  • Activities like running, jumping, hopping and skipping are all important for kids' development.

  • For short trips in and around where you live, you and your family can walk, ride your bikes or rollerblade... do whichever suits your family best.  

  • Don't rush things! If you or a member of your family are struggling to be active, start with what you can do and build it up over time. Check with your GP or health professional on what's best for you and your family.
