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!


  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! Check out our Resources for ideas to get you going.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there are free classes or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.

  • Often it is hard to have everyone in the same place for every meal. Try mapping out on the calendar every meal you will aim to eat together this month and stick to it!
