One of my favorite ways to start the day is bouncing on a mini-trampoline outside in the morning sunshine.
An additional option for parents is to involve your kids in this activity.
When doing this, there are then at least 5 major benefits: 1) Low-impact exercise in the morning to start your day 2) Sunshine in the morning to help wake up 3) Play with kids 4) Role model for kids 5) Give your spouse a break

I recently discovered that I usually eat high fat sugary foods when I'm stressed out. I needed to change my game plan. I bought a mini trampoline. Now I bounce instead of eating a bag of chips. My study breaks are now trampoline breaks, instead of binge opportunities.334
I have a ReboundAir brand of mini trampoline. I just discovered how to walk in place on it. Alternate lifting each heel off the trampoline, without lifting the entire foot. Move your arms as you would when walking. It's quite effective!
I had been considering getting an elliptical or treadmill but this saved me money and space and is giving me a good workout. It's working my knees which I needed and wanted!
