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.

  • Pretending to move like different animals is a fun way for your kids to be active, become more aware of their bodies and to learn along the way. Download our indoor or outdoor dice games to get your family moving!

  • Play with the family dog. Kicking or throwing the ball for the dog will keep everyone on the move. After all, if anyone can keep up with the kids, it's your dog!

  • Try to limit the time your kids spend sitting or lying down. To get the kids moving more, get the kids to move in the ad breaks of their favourite TV show.

  • 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.
