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!


  • Consider a regular family catch up. Enjoying good relationships with family, friends and the wider community will benefit your whole family’s wellbeing.

  • Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal together to avoid any distractions.

  • Plant a small garden together - the kids will have fun and learn as they decide which plants to grow in the garden they helped to build.

  • Sitting on the couch or in front of a screen and mindlessly eating can seem like the easy option some days, but it can mean we're not paying attention to what or how much we're eating. Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal with your family to avoid any distractions.

  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.
