7. Warm Up With Wine

Diversify your alcohol choice with a room temperature glass of table wine. The warmer drink will take the chill off and the wine, especially red, has heart health benefits.

8. Synchronize Your Sleep

Manage the more demanding fall schedules by synchronizing your internal sleep-wake clock to the outside environment.

In the morning, get outside within 5 minutes of getting up and expose yourself to bright light for 30 minutes. At night, avoid bright light within two to three hours of bedtime because it might delay your sleep onset. This will keep you alert in the morning and make you sleepy at bedtime.

It's time to renew yourself! Try these eight easy health-boosting tips -- they're sure to give you a fresh start this fall.
