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.

  • On your little one's birthday, include a present that involves being active. A hacky sack, Frisbee, skipping rope or football are all great options.

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

  • You don't need fancy gadgets or expensive equipment for strength building exercises – the stairs or park bench will do! Try doing exercises that use your body weight like push-ups, squats or lunges.

  • 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.
