Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • Join up with another family at the park and form teams to play a game of cricket or soccer.

  • Plan your meals before the week gets busy and get the kids involved with setting the table and preparing the food. Not only will your kids benefit from better eating habits, your whole family will get the opportunity to speak to each other without any other distractions.
