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!


  • 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.

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often each family member spends in front of a screen. Using the television, electronic games, portable electronic devices or computers for entertainment can quickly add up.

  • Having strong, broad social connections in your life can increase feelings of happiness and self-worth in you... and in your kids.

  • 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.

  • It can be as simple as going for a family walk - it's a fun way to be active while spending time talking together.
