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!


  • Try mixing it up a bit and let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • Make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Consider a regular family catch up. Enjoying good relationships with family, friends and the wider community will benefit your whole family’s wellbeing.

  • Sitting on the couch or in front of a screen and mindlessly eating can seem like the easy option some days, but it can mean we're not paying attention to what or how much we're eating. Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal with your family to avoid any distractions.

  • 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.
