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.

  • Need something from the local shops? Leave the car at home and walk instead.

  • Short bursts of play and activity with your kids can quickly add up. Every little bit counts!

  • 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.

  • Your little ones will love playing with balls, bats, tricycles and kites (with supervision) – they're all activities that encourage movement.
