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!


  • Make a pledge to limit your family's screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

  • Get your little ones moving to music or try action songs like 'Head-Shoulders-Knees and Toes'.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • 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.

  • 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.
