Have Friends Over For Dinner
It's always easier to cancel plans when they're vague. We feel guilty about it, but a "so sorry, let's catch up soon!" text is easy to fire off after a long week and then before we know it, six months have passed. Invite your friends over for dinner instead, you're far more likely to stick to plans if they're low key. Best of all, you're totally allowed to order takeout and polish off a bottle of wine.
