Watch your intake of sugar, bad carbs and veggies. Try to work out at least three times a week-if you can’t fit in before or after work try midday.

I like to exercise at night when my brain doesn’t want to do more work. If I try to do it in the morning or midday I just get anxious about missing work time or the things I need to do. Evening workouts are relaxing. Also watch the casual or binge drinking.

I’m exactly the same way. Although last week I just got back from vacation and was jet lagged and started waking up at 4:30/5am which helped me get in a bit of a workout before feeling stressed which was great.

I do push ups and sit-ups every morning before I take a shower. It only takes 5 minutes but is better than nothing and I have no excuse not to do it.

But if you are slow at work, disappearing for an hour or two during lunch would do wonders for you. I hear you on the anxiety but I think a lot of professionals work out during the day. Worse case you just stay an hour or two later after work to complete what is left to do for the day.

Make sure you do at least a little exercise every day, even if you can only fit in 5-10 minutes. The hardest part is starting.

first and foremost, no processed food (chips/snacks/soda). That stuff is obvious to avoid, but easy to let into your system when you're busy. Drinking tea throughout the day does wonders for overall body feeling. And drinking alcohol- minimal to no drinking. These are my foundational blocks, on top of yoga on weekends.
