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 bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Get the kids involved in the garden. They can help with tasks like digging holes for plants, carrying watering cans or raking leaves into piles.

  • 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.

  • Rediscover classic playground games with your kids, like hide-and-seek, follow the leader, stuck in the mud, or tip/tag games.
