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.


  • For short trips in and around where you live, you and your family can walk, ride your bikes or rollerblade... do whichever suits your family best.  

  • 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.

  • Activities like running, jumping, hopping and skipping are all important for kids' development.

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often your kids do strength building exercise.

  • Try not to overload your family with too much physical activity too quickly, or your kids may come to dislike being active. If they enjoy themselves (and see you're having fun too), it's more likely being active will become a natural part of their routine.
