Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Put active family time in your diary. Visit playgrounds, parks, nature reserves, or ovals. Track how much time you are spending being active on our Habit tracker.

  • Regular physical activity helps to strengthen your bones.

  • Walking is a fantastic exercise that's low impact yet very effective at keeping you healthy. Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family gets moving.

  • Once you've started and you're being active on a regular basis, you'll find it gets easier.

  • Like most changes, start small. Try doing ten laps of the backyard jogging or get the skipping rope out. Any activity that gets your heart rate up and huffing and puffing will do you good.
