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!


  • Staying in regular contact with the people in your life - and the community around you - can improve your self-esteem.

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

  • Try to remember to switch off distractions like your phone while talking with your kids - it'll remind them that they're important to you.

  • One clear evening, take the family outside and see if you can find south using the stars, if you can spot any of the famous star constellations, or simply make up your own shapes. For more ideas to explore the sky with your kids, visit here.

  • Time spent looking at a screen generally means time not spent exercising or connecting with your family. 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.
