I do 10 jumping jacks, but if that doesn't work for you, try starting out with 5 and working your way up. Jumping jacks make you feel energized and aren't that hard to do. I also stretch and that really helps me get ready for a big workout.
Yoga because it never makes me feel bad or sick after. It gives me a feeling of being connected to my body and dropped back into my mortal vessal.

I usually do some light yoga and stretches until I feel warm and start sweating a little. This can be coupled with meditation, which helps me to return to a headspace in which I feel good about working my body out. I also love to start off with a few hits to the punching bag. Using the punching bag makes me feel powerful, confident, and in control of my body.

I usually do yoga; if I'm not feeling it, I roll out my mat and just settle into child's pose and breath. Usually after a few breaths here, I feel ready to ease into a cobra or cat/cow. Once I've reached this point, it's easier to stand up and keep moving, keep flowing, thank starting with a particular posture/flow in mind.
I take walks around my neighborhood. I force myself to get out of bed and go, I tell myself “okay, just the 8 minutes, and then I can go home and rest”, and sometime happens when I’m walking that makes me more motivated, and that 8 minutes turns to 10, 15, 20, etc. But I’m not forcing myself to go longer than 8 minutes.
