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.


  • Try mixing things up - go bike riding, play touch footy at one of your local ovals, go swimming at a public pool or go for a brisk walk (or even a light jog and see if your kids can keep up).

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

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your kids spend seated. You might be surprised how quickly the time spent commuting, at work or school or watching the television can add up.

  • Physical activity helps boost your heart and lungs' ability to get blood to your muscles.

  • Need something from the local shops? Leave the car at home and walk instead.
