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!


  • Dinner time can sometimes be too difficult at the end of a busy day - why not start a day together as a family? Eating together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!

  • Twirling and running with streamers is a fun, active game the kids will love. Make sure you join in too!

  • If your family finds it hard to disconnect from digital media, try putting your laptop, smartphone and other devices in a cupboard or somewhere out of sight for a set period of time.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.
