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.


  • Don't rush things! If you or a member of your family are struggling to be active, start with what you can do and build it up over time. Check with your GP or health professional on what's best for you and your family.

  • A great way to get the family moving together - especially something that makes you huff and puff a bit - is to play a game of tag together. For more game ideas, check out our downloadable Resources.

  • By limiting the time you spend sitting or lying down you can help reduce your risk of some cancers and prevent unhealthy weight gain.

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

  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.
