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.

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

  • Break up long periods of sitting as often as possible by taking regular breaks and walking somewhere - break it up into three 10 minute walks during your day!

  • Try to limit the time your kids spend sitting or lying down. To get the kids moving more, get the kids to move in the ad breaks of their favourite TV show.

  • 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.
