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.

  • Try to keep family activities varied, and be sure to let your children take turns choosing what activity the family will do next.

  • Don't rush things! If you or a member of your family are struggling to be active, start with what you can do and build it up over time. Check with your GP or health professional on what's best for you and your family.

  • There are many strength building activities that are not necessarily what you would see as exercise - digging, carrying or lifting all count.

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!

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