Hyphens in compound modifiers

0

What do you think should be done if the noun the phrase is modifying is only implied? For instance:

 

You'll be finding out how to apply this plan to your day-to-day.

 

The implied noun that "day-to-day" is modifying is "work" or "job." Would you leave the hyphens in, or change it to:

 

You'll be finding out how to apply this plan to your day to day.

 

I realize that this whole issue could be avoided if I added the noun or rearranged the sentence. Please pretend like those are not options.

 

Thanks!
