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.


  • Take the stairs instead of the lift or escalator. Or if you're on an escalator, keep walking anyway.

  • Try using our Habit Tracker to keep track of how often your kids do strength building exercise.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!
