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.


  • Playing with balloons can be fun and active for all ages. Join the kids in a game of punching, kicking or throwing balloons and keeping them off the ground for as long as they can.

  • Getting the benefits of moderate exercise is not about big workouts and exhaustion. Try getting in extra steps throughout the day. Go for a walk around the block at lunchtime, meet other families for a walk around the lake or take the stairs rather than the escalator at the shops.

  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.

  • Remember, doing any physical activity is better than none! Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family does vigorous physical activity.

  • Encourage the kids to try walking barefoot on different surfaces - try grass, carpet, concrete or sand.
