Being fit is key. Adopt a fitness schedule as a priority. With already so much on your plate, we bet you are thinking “how the hell can I also squeeze in having a fitness schedule”. You do not need to adopt an extreme fitness regime like you would if you were in the army. Oh no, keep it simple and keep it light if you have to. However, you must keep it consistent too. Anything from light stretches, to yoga to full on running in the early mornings or evenings will help.
