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.


  • Make physical activity part of your family's routine. The more regular your efforts in keeping active, the more likely you are to stick to your new healthy active lifestyle.

  • Encourage your kids to create, imagine and choose their own play. They'll be learning creative play and independence (e.g. climbing a tree or building a cubby house out of chairs under sheets).

  • Take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator. Or if you're on an escalator, keep walking anyway.

  • Walking is a fantastic exercise that's low impact yet very effective at keeping you healthy. Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family gets moving.

  • Encourage your kids to grow strong bones and muscles by getting them to skip, hop, run and jump.
