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

  • Encourage the kids to try walking barefoot on different surfaces - try grass, carpet, concrete or sand.

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

  • Don't rush things! If you or a member of your family are struggling to be active, start with what you can do and build it up over time. Check with your GP or health professional on what's best for you and your family.

  • 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.
