1 IS YOUR WEEK­END AGENDA AL­READY SET BY WED­NES­DAY AF­TER­NOON?

Cosmopolitan (India) - - YOU, YOU, YOU -

Haven’t a clue where you’re go­ing un­til five min­utes be­fore you step out the door? Rou­tines drag you down. That’s why you have an awe­some time when, say, you run into a high school friend and end up spend­ing two hours brows­ing through a flea mar­ket with her. Avoid things that cor­ral your go-with-the-flow ten­den­cies. “If you have brunch plans, don’t tell your mom you’ll meet her an hour later,” says Rhonda Brit­ten, a life coach in Boul­der, Colorado.

Girls whose en­tire week­ends are booked by mid-week feel most se­cure with struc­ture. Any­thing too dis­or­gan­ised—like an out-of-town friend who is vis­it­ing and re­fuses to tell you her itin­er­ary in ad­vance— will over­whelm and an­noy you. Fit re­cur­ring events into your rou­tine (think a yoga class that meets ev­ery Satur­day morn­ing). “Hav­ing that blocked out gives you a calm­ing sense of or­der,” says Seth Mey­ers, Psy.d., a LA psy­chol­o­gist and au­thor of Dr Seth’s Love Pre­scrip­tion.
