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!


  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.

  • Try using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).

  • There are lots of ways you can help your community, like delivering meals to those in need, reading books to children, or door-to-door collecting for charity. Volunteering ACT has great ideas on where to start.

  • One weekend a month try not to focus on all the jobs you have to do around the house and take some time out to connect with those who are important to you.

  • Staying in regular contact with the people in your life - and the community around you - can improve your self-esteem.
