Challenge your family to get into life

Challenge your family to get into life
These are challenges to help your family get more out of life – but they're so much fun, they won’t really feel that challenging at all! Plus, you can try our handy tips to help get you started.


  • Get all the family to tell their digital and real-life friends and family which night is your no screen night, then if they see you online they can remind you of your commitment.

  • Can you all get up and move about in every ad break during your favourite TV show this week? 

  • Every day this week, smile at a stranger.  For kids, it could be someone outside of their year at school, and for you, someone at the shops. Notice how good you feel knowing that you just brightened up someone’s day!  (TIP: if smiling at strangers feels too uncomfortable, you could instead choose to give out a compliment to someone you do know!)

  • Make time this week to sit at the table at least once a day to eat a meal together. Some families might find breakfast the best time for this, while for others dinner time is when everyone tends to be home. Just sitting, talking and connecting with your family can be beneficial for your health.

  • Can your family try a 'no screen day' once a week for the next month? That's no TV, social media, gaming or anything else you do behind a screen on the set day you allocate. Get all the family to tell their digital and real-life friends and family which night is your no screen night, then if they see you online they can remind you of your commitment.
