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.

  • Physical activity doesn't always need to be organised sport, or going to the gym - it can be as simple as finding fun ways to move your body.

  • Regular physical activity helps to reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu.

  • If your child is in a stroller encourage them to walk for some of the journey.

  • 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.
