What do I need to do? How can I transfer from my wallet to my own wallet?

Which wallet are you using? If it's Blockchain.info or any online wallet, you will have to wait them until they upgrade. If you are using Electrum for example, just install the latest version (anything above 3.0 have SegWit support) and as for hardware wallets (Trezor, Ledger nano), you should have the ability to switch between Legacy (old addresses) and SegWit addresses at anytime you want.

The transferring itself is just a simple transaction. From your legacy address to your segwit address.
There is no other way of 'changing' your address type. Depending on the amount of inputs this could cost quite a high fee.
If your btc's are composed of small inputs you may wait until the fees will settle down to not pay too much in fees.

But your wallet does have to support segwit. Not every wallet does support segwit yet.

Here is a summarized list of (the most used) wallets supporting segwit:

Code:
Armory
Bitcoin Core
Blockchain.info (online wallet)
Electrum
GreenAddress
GreenBits
KeepKey (hardware wallet)
Ledger nano/blue (hardware wallet)
Trezor (hardware wallet)
Samurai wallet (not sure about this one)

Better if I wait the fees go low.
