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.


  • Small changes to your routine can mean more opportunities for your family to move more. Park your car in the furthest parking space from the shop's entrance, then walk to the shops.

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!

  • Once you've started and you're being active on a regular basis, you'll find it gets easier.

  • If you're driving for more than two hours, stop, revive and survive. Stop at a park or rest area so you can all get out and move.

  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?
