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.


  • One clear evening, take the family outside and see if you can find south using the stars, if you can spot any of the famous star constellations, or simply make up your own shapes. For more ideas to explore the sky with your kids, visit here.

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

  • By incorporating physical activity into your family's daily life, you are on your way to a healthier weight, more energy and a better night's sleep.

  • There are some activities like reading, doing school work and travelling that need to be done while you are sitting. But there can still be opportunities to move more and sit less. A fun way to get active while reading with the family is to read a book out loud and act out parts of the story. If a character is running, the family can run too. Are characters in the story dancing? Dance along, too!

  • If you're getting active for the first time or just starting out and feel a little nervous, trying new activities together as a family is a great way to help support you and overcome any fears.
