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.

  • As a parent, your life often gets caught up with various parenting "stuff". Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking in 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.

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.

  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.

  • 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.
