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.


  • 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?

  • If you're self-conscious about your body, start by being active with a partner or friend - or your whole family. Strength in numbers!

  • If you're driving for more than two hours, stop, revive and survive. Stop at a park or rest area so you can all get out and move.

  • If your child is in a stroller encourage them to walk for some of the journey.

  • Try mixing things up each week to help work different muscle groups and improve your kids' posture, mobility and balance. Why not watch a clip on YouTube of stretching and do bursts of activity during a TV ad break - the kids can get involved too.
