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.


  • Make a pledge to limit your family’s screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.

  • Family walks are a great way to be active while spending time talking together as a 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.

  • Shovelling or carrying heavy loads counts as physical activity, so keep it in mind when you have work to do in the garden!

  • We know it can be hard to do 60 minutes of activity a day - so start with 10 minutes once or twice a day and build your way up.
