In brief: Walk/Jog
30 minutes is perfect for some exercise.
5 minutes to warm up and stretch. 20 minutes of walking or running or calistenics (jumping jacks, running in place, push ups) and 5 minutes of cool down. If that is all you have then you still get a workout in each day. Thats great.

30 minutes a day is just what the doctor ordered.
National guidelines recommend 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity activity, like brisk walking. So 5 days a week is fine. Or you could do it on 3 weekdays and the weekend. And resistance training is recommended twice a week.

Don't forget to eat and go to bathroom during that brief break, however.
