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!


  • 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.

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

  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org

  • 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.

  • Try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.
