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 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.

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

  • 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.

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Try to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.
