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 give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.
Encourage polite and respectful behaviour at meal times. Try to wait until everyone is seated before you start eating.
Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family - and with so much technology around it's easy to lose track of time. Try allocating specific time periods for media use - preferably not during daylight hours when you can be active outdoors instead - to limit your family's screen time.
If finding time to connect with other families and friends is a bit much at the moment, try to spend time together with your family this weekend. Go on a drive to one of our surrounding national parks and take a nature walk. Check out the Explore Canberra guide for more ideas.
There are endless ways you can motivate your family to move more at home like a game of backyard cricket, soccer, or basketball. And by being physically active with your family, you're also being a great role model for your kids.
