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).

  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.

  • Try mixing things up each week to help work different muscle groups and improve your kids' posture, mobility and balance. Why not watch a clip on YouTube of stretching and do bursts of activity during a TV ad break - the kids can get involved too.

  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

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