The article presents the results of approbation of methods that allow diversifying the structure and content of everyday life in a transitive society. The structure and content of representations about everyday life in the social group of girls and women were analyzed in order to preliminary identify the diversity of perspectives in the study of this phenomenon. Introduced the construct "personal everyday life", which is understood as a holistic image, containing a set of the subject's representations about their own daily life, including the differentiation of its various spheres, types of habitual activities, awareness of the role of significant others in the daily pattern of human existence. The theoretical basis of the work served as a modern study of the psychology of everyday life, where the current transformations of different spheres of human life are considered as coping strategies. In a situation of transitivity of society, mobility and complication of social contexts of interactions, special attention is paid to flexible ways to respond to the challenges of the present. For empirical research of diversification of the everyday life sphere, special authorial techniques were developed aimed at identifying various aspects of everyday perception, reflection and evaluation of various spheres of life in real and ideal terms, highlighting the role of significant other and individual strategies for overcoming difficulties in the subject’s everyday life. A comparative study of the various characteristics of the images of personal everyday life in girls and women made it possible to identify similarities and differences in the structure and perception of everyday life in people of different ages. The increase in the role of factors of education and the information space in the daily life of a person in a transitive society, as well as the dynamics of age-related changes in the assessment of the significance of various spheres of his daily life are established. These changes fit into the global trends of modern transformation, manifested as personalization of social space, individualization of life strategies, growth of subjectivity and values ​​of self-expression, expansion of private life, change of locus of control from external to internal.

Keywords: psychology of everyday life, transitive society, transformations of modernity, latent changes, ideas about the everyday life of girls and women, a personal everyday life, appropriation of everyday life
