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.


  • Set your phone or computer alarm to remind the family to stand up and get moving every 30 minutes when you're at home. You could all march on the spot together or even go for a short walk around the house or the block.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Activities like running, jumping, hopping and skipping are all important for kids' development.

  • Your little ones will love opportunities to practice their kicking and catching balls, climbing and balancing with you.
