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 some backyard cricket, soccer or basketball - not only will your kids have fun, it will help everyone sleep better and give you more energy tomorrow.

  • Try standing up to read notes when you're at work or you're talking on the phone, and get the kids to move in each ad break of their favourite TV show.

  • Try to keep family activities varied, and be sure to let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • A fun way to get active while reading with your kids is to read a book out loud and act out parts of the story. If a character is running, you could run on the spot or around the house too.

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often your kids do strength building exercise.
