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.


  • By limiting the time you spend sitting or lying down you can help reduce your risk of some cancers and prevent unhealthy weight gain.

  • A great way to get the family moving together - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - is to play a game of tag together. For more game ideas, check out our downloadable Resources.

  • If you're self-conscious about your body, start by being active with a partner or friend - or your whole family. Strength in numbers!

  • 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.

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