Among the things you mentioned, I'd say sleep is the most important one for me. If that is lacking then it has a domino effect on everything else. After that, I'd say massage and a nice cup of tea through out the day.
I enjoy yoga but haven't done it consistently enough to know if it makes an observable difference.
I think exercise is good for my body but it doesn't make me feel good.

You know I have done lots of things to try and improve my general health (yoga, more swimming, cutting out various foods from my diet) - some of that has been great and very effective, others not so much. But if I am being honest, the thing that I have done that has most improved my health, is simply sorting my sleeping out: getting more of it, and making sure it is better quality.
No fancy-pants things, just simple stuff: taking phone, tv, laptops out of the room, not drinking alcohol directly before going to bed, getting a better mattress (we ended up getting a best rated mattress topper as well for the OH's bad back - I recommend taking a look at this site here - http://www.zenbedrooms.com/mattress-toppers.html), and simply going to bed EARLIER. Instead of working till midnight, I slip under the covers early, and consequenlty I feel much better in the morning, and indeed throughout the day - I have more energy, and simply feel happier.
