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.


  • Like most changes, start small. Try doing ten laps of the backyard jogging or get the skipping rope out. Any activity that gets your heart rate up and huffing and puffing will do you good.

  • Regular physical activity helps to strengthen your bones.

  • Bring the bikes, scooters and ball so the kids can play while you work out!

    - User-submitted tip

  • 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.

  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.
