How do you balance other activities with programming?

P: 1
I want to understand how much it's possible to balance programming, and a few more activities, and still be substantially good.
Can anyone share some personal examples of how you balance programming with some other activities. How good are you at those? Do you integrate one activity with the other, or do you have it separate like a hobby? (by "integrating" i mean something like game developing if you like games.)
Does anyone do art? Maybe drawing, or music. How does that work out? Do you have time for anything else? What do you spend it on? And how about fitness? How do you fit that into the schedule?
Looking forward to read your experiences, thoughts, and tips.

I think it all depends on the level of your engagement and a bit of time management skills :)
From my perspective, it's wise to differentiate various activities by making one of them a way of earning money, and preserving others as your hobbies. You just need to create a sort of schedule in your life and dedicate some part of the day/week to programming.
As for me, I'm really into music, however, I don't do for a living by playing or composing. I just enjoy playing the piano and do it when I want to relax.

There is nothing new to be said here.
It all comes down to prioritizing.
Prioritize activities that matter most to you.Allocate time for them and stick to the schedule when it comes to these.
