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.

  • When you're juggling parenting with the demands of everyday life, it can be hard to stay on top of everything. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with friends and the kids can come along and run around.

  • Your kids are usually more influenced by what you do than what you say. It's not always easy but if you try to set a good example they'll follow in your footsteps!

  • 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 reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.
