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.

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • You don't need fancy gadgets or expensive equipment for strength building exercises – the stairs or park bench will do! Try doing exercises that use your body weight like push-ups, squats or lunges.

  • If you're self-conscious about your body, start by being active with a partner or friend - or your whole family. Strength in numbers!

  • When dropping the kids at school, park a block or two away so you can walk the rest of the way together. It's a great way to avoid the school drop off traffic (and get some physical activity into your day too!).
