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.

  • Regular physical activity helps to reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu.

  • Try mixing things up each week to help work different muscle groups and improve your kids' posture, mobility and balance. Why not watch a clip on YouTube of stretching and do bursts of activity during a TV ad break - the kids can get involved too.

  • Even if you are physically active, you will still benefit from limiting the amount of time you spend sitting or lying down. If you're travelling, stop at a park or rest areas so you can get out and move, or if your kids are in a stroller encourage them to walk for some of the journey.

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!
