I am a developer most of the time spent on a chair and at home I put some time on self learning which is also laying on the bed or sitting + working on some a side hustle.

What kind of routine suits bests to have healthy and energetic day?

    It's impossible, that's why men die earlier than women.

    1 hour gym every day. Never miss it.
    Do standing desk couple hours a day. Stay hydrated. Eat clean. Even as a developer you don’t have to look like you weigh 300 pounds. Put your gym time right after work or before work. Don’t stop at home first or you’ll psyche yourself out and not go. Track food intake. Meal prep. Skip breakfast and fast til lunch + dinner. Go for a walk during lunch. Plenty of stuff you can do

      @whiskr I don’t meal prep, only cause my meals are really simple. Either chicken or steak in oven time it while I do other stuff. Water, occasional snack during the day

      @ google guy:
      No but just an example. Very rarely do I see office workers with a toned body. It’s mostly dad bods or even larger. I’m not ripped myself but I’m on the way.

    Work out in the morning before work. You just have to be disciplined about sleep to make it happen. I do 2 days of weightlifting, 2 days of yoga, 1 day of pilates, then on weekends random stuff (hikes, long walks, rowing, elliptical, whatever).

    Also get a personal trainer to help bootstrap the habit. Don’t worry about the cost, it’s worth it when you’re investing in your health. I’d recommend trying a fitness tracker as well, you may find that it motivates you - my apple watch motivates the shit out of me.

    Building the habit is the most important thing. Start at one day a week if you have to. Grind it out until it’s just thoughtless routine, then slowly add more. At some point the time management and willpower expenditure really does become automatic, in particular when you start to see the positive effects of this routine on your mood, energy and body. It took me years to work up to this point, but now that I’m here I have no desire to stop. My anxiety is lower, I have so much more energy throughout the day, seeing the capabilities of my body expanding feels great, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t notice or appreciate the attention I’ve gotten as a result of getting fitter.

    Good luck, you can do it!

    I don’t do monetized side hustles. My main hustle is lucrative enough that I’d rather spend my extra time on activities that don’t monetize.

    Stop working on some other stuff at home, stop self learning. Enjoy life in other ways, go running and biking

      Wow. So much as I want to. But I know until I got that sweet google badge I am a slave to this trade.

    Lift 2x per week, play a sport 2x per week and maybe hit a yoga class once in a while.

    Run up and down stairs if you are in a multi story building. I schedule meetings on extreme floors back to back. If you have a gym in the office, do intense strength training. Put it on your calendar and do it every day, 30+ minutes minimum.

    Get an outdoors hobby that you can do with wife and kids like hiking, surfing, kitesurfing, paddle boarding or what have you on the weekend.

    I have a very similar routine as yours. Exercise before your 9-5. Don’t kill yourself over the side hustle. And learn to quickly switch off your brain from whatever you are doing and move to something else.

    You don't, you just hope you can save enough to retire early in time to reverse it. Done well you can expect to live until at least 45.
