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.

  • Break up long periods of sitting as often as possible by taking regular breaks and walking somewhere - break it up into three 10 minute walks during your day!

  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?

  • On long car trips be aware of screen time and switch off for a set time. Play fun games like making words out of other cars' number plates, 'I spy', or you can all sing along to music (making sure to change the rhyming words to make it a funny song).

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