I'm looking for examples of small lifestyle changes that will gradually help me to be healthier.

Every so often I get really jazzed on the idea of getting healthy. For about four days, I'll eat tons of veggies, no caffeine, drink a bathtub of water, and go to the gym. Day five I give up. This time, I want to take a more "slow and steady" approach and incorporate one or two small changes into my life every month. I'm looking for things that will make a difference in the long run, but don't require a massive overhaul of my entire life. (Less, "go vegan!", more "cut out meat one day a week!" Less, "no coffee or red wine!", more "floss!")
I don't smoke, I do eat meat and gluten and drink coffee. I don't exercise much currently, and am hoping that incremental changes can turn me into an exercise-convert.
