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.


  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.

  • Make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Try to keep family activities varied, and be sure to let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • Take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator. Or if you're on an escalator, keep walking anyway.

  • If it's raining outside, move the fun indoors with a dance competition, play games with balloons or soft balls, or head to your local indoor swimming pool.
