1. Walk more, drive lessIt’s easy to just hop in the car when we need to pop down to the shops or visit a friend. Choosing to walk when we can improves our health. This has the added benefit of saving on fuel and wear and tear on your car. It’s a no brainer!
2. Get the kids involvedThere are loads of cheap or even free activities that are available for both kids and adults to enjoy. It can often be a handful to keep the children busy on weekend and in holidays. Here are a few active suggestions:
- Take the kids bushwalking – throughout Australia there’s a lot of great tracks which don’t cost a cent to participate.
- Backyard sports – a healthy Australian past time. Get the kids outside playing cricket or soccer and off the PlayStation.
