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!


  • Life as a parent often feels like it's a rush from one thing to the next. Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking a coffee date with a friend into your diary or catching up for some adult conversation. Your kids will learn that fostering friendships is important.

  • Get your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • Try volunteering in your local community. You can help a cause that interests you, and can offer as little or as much of your time as you like.

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