I am a professional. I am not a student. I do not get Spring Break any longer : (. However, I do work with students every day. Most of my clients are on spring break, so I inevitably feel as if I should be on spring break also. But I can't, so I just opt to go through the week with a spring break mentality. Here is how I accomplish this:
Phase 1: Take a mini-vacation. I am taking Friday off.
Phase 2: Try not to work late hours. Since I can see my clients during the day because they aren't in school, I don't have to work as many late evenings.
Phase 3: Do something irresponsible. I watched a movie Monday night, thus foregoing doing much needed paperwork and going to bed later than I should have.
Phase 4: Think Spring: I have worn short sleeved shirts for two days now even though it has been slightly cold each day. I have also limited the amount of time I wear a coat.
Phase 5: Do as little as possible. I have attempted to not fill my evenings with lots of stuff, but to relax and enjoy the evening.
