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.

  • Don't forget, shovelling or carrying heavy loads makes you huff and puff which counts as vigorous activity.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
