For most small business owners, the festive season is a flurry of activity from running their company, attending holiday parties, finding the perfect tree, and family get-togethers. All of this holiday hustle can lead to anxiety and stress.

But scheduling some much-needed downtime over the holidays will help you recharge and appreciate what you have so you're at your best in the new year.  

Here are three valuable tips to help you de-stress and refresh over the holiday season.

Set Your Holiday Boundaries

Remember to post your holiday closed and re-opening message to alert your customers. Wish them happy and safe holidays and that you look forward to serving them in the new year.

Check your cell phone and emails occasionally to stay on top of any unforeseen emergencies. Remember, the essential people in your life already live with you, so schedule a family movie, play a board game or enjoy some tobogganing and hot chocolate.

Let Go of Perfectionism

You want to do the holidays up right and keep everyone happy, but be realistic. Not everything will get done on your to-do list. You're not in a Norman Rockwell painting!

Buy ready-made desserts, ask family and friends to help decorate, cut back on purchasing every item on the wish list, and give yourself permission to skip some of the holiday parties.

Prioritize Healthy Habits

Self-care is vital all year round, not just during the festive season or as part of your January resolutions.

Although you may indulge in all the yummy food, ensure you're drinking plenty of water, eating fruits and veggies and staying active, even if it's taking the dog for a walk.

The holiday season is a great time to read a good book, listen to music, try something new like yoga, or reconnect with a hobby you've neglected.

Final thoughts:

Following these practical tips and blocking out time for you and your family will bring back perspective and the true meaning of life.

With a grateful heart and a clear head, you will start the new year with renewed optimism and energy.
