No smoking. Active. After surgery, you'll want to move around - gentle activity.
Listen to your doctor and don’t over do it
I assume that you’re referring to an inguinal (groin) hernia, but there are several types of inguinal hernias, also. Indirect is the most common, occurring along the spermatic cord exit from abdomen. However, direct is quite common and is a bulge medial to the inferior epigástric vessels. Also, varies with age, body habitus, comorbid conditions, etc
There is no "fastest" way to recovery from surgery. The key is to allow yourself time to recover. Starting strenuous activity too quickly after surgery will put you at risk for a recurrence of your hernia or will turn a 2-4 week recovery into an 8-12 week recovery.

It is encouraged that you maintain some light activity such as walking to keep your stamina and prevent fatigue.
Ambulate and stay hydrated.
