Mini-Trampoline & Why You Should Use One

Rebounding promotes whole body wellness. Here are 20 reasons you should be rebounding too!

The busier life gets, the more challenging it is for me to make time for exercise. Exercising can so easily fall by the wayside.

But after reading in most of my health books over the years about how beneficial a rebounder is, I decided to purchase one and make it a part of my life. “Rebounding” is simply jumping on a mini-trampoline. The motion of jumping on a rebounder increases the gravitational pull of the body. This pull tones and strengthens bones, cells, tissues, and muscles organs.

Rebounding promotes whole body wellness. It is the only exercise that cleanses every cell in the body. It also does an excellent job of increasing lymph flow.

Why is this so important?

The lymph system bathes and carries nutrients to every cell. It also removes toxins, dead and cancerous cells from the body. The lymph system can only flow through physical exercise.

Below is a list of 20 ways the rebounder can bring you to better health:

  • Slows down aging
  • Helps digestion
  • Enhances elimination
  • Increases breathing capacity
  • Brings more oxygen to tissues
  • Increases production of red blood cells
  • Tones and strengthens every cell in the body
  • Helps rid the body of dead and cancerous cells
  • Helps brain function
  • Directly strengthens the immune system
  • Fights fatigue
  • Strengthens the heart
  • Increases lymph flow
  • Burns more calories than jogging
  • Flushes toxins from the body
  • Lowers elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Reduces depression and stress
  • Builds alkaline reserve
  • Helps muscle pain
  • Improves circulation

Anyone can benefit from rebounding. A baby can be held in the arms of someone rebounding; a handicapped or elderly person can place their feet on the rebounder while someone else jumps.

It is recommended to start off jumping 3-4 minutes a day and gradually increase the time. Working up to 15-20 minutes a day is ideal, but even a few minutes a day is beneficial.  I feel so energized after rebounding!

How about you.  Have you ever tried a rebounder?

How To Make Herbed Cherry Tomatoes

Adding a fresh herb or two and healthy raw vinegar adds a unique twist to tomatoes!  

Tis the season for growing tomatoes! And fresh herbs!

There are few things I enjoy eating more in the summer than fresh tomatoes from the garden.

Now is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable? That is the question of the day. I know they are botanically classified as a fruit, but they smell, look, taste, and are used like a vegetable, so that’s what they are in my book! 🙂

I enjoy adding tomatoes to several different dishes, but adding a fresh herb or two and healthy raw vinegar adds a unique twist for something different.
