If you were very healthy physically before, then got out of shape from constant desk work and stress, how can you turn your life around?

In brief: Start exercising

Begin by walking 15-20 minutes every other day.
That amount can be increased by 5 minutes every week as you progress, you can gradually intersperse some jogging for few minute intervals also, some stretching and core exercises can be helpful in the overall conditioning scheme.
