Whenever I’m sitting at my desk, stuck in the swamp of writer’s block or feeling overwhelmed by the hundreds of unread emails in my inbox, I turn to an exercise that works every time: I jump on my mini trampoline. Within a minute my body begins to shake off stress, and after a 10‐minute session I feel amazingly energized and at peace.

Rebounding on a mini trampoline makes you feel more childlike, helps you bust through blocks and greatly supports your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system carries nutrients to the cells while leading away waste products. Without proper movement, it gets blocked, leaving the cells to soak in waste without nutrients. This stagnation in the body can lead to disease and speed up the aging process.

Rebounding on a mini trampoline makes you feel more childlike, helps you bust through blocks and greatly supports your lymphatic system.

The primary lymph vessels move up the legs, up the arms, and up the torso, which is why vertical movement on the trampoline is so helpful for pumping it. And if you usually wear tight clothes while working out, skip them this time—in fact, you shouldn’t even wear a bra. The free movement of the breasts helps move the lymph through the breast tissue. I know this may sound crazy, but it’s vital to our health.

One note: If you don’t want to buy a trampoline or don’t have space for one, no worries! Just jump rope or dance around your room. Do whatever it takes to move the tension out of your body. Simple up‐and‐down movements can help you release mental, physical, and emotional blocks in record time.
