Weekly Activity Diary
Everything you do from morning till night is an activity (sleeping, eating, showering, working, exercising, picking up your children, watching TV, seeing a movie, getting a hair cut, …..etc.). Before a week arrives, your Weekly Activity Diary records "activities" you know you will do in the coming week (click here to see what activities you need to enter before a week arrives). As the week proceeds, it will continue to record what you have actually done everyday in the week. The recording of your Weekly Activity Diary will begin from one Sunday evening and end with the next Sunday.
On the first Sunday evening, you will be asked to indicate the activities you are going to do for the coming week (i.e., from Monday morning till next Sunday evening). For example, on a Sunday evening, I know for sure I will go to work from 9 AM to 5 PM, from Monday to Friday. I know I always go to grocery shopping on Friday, but the exact time varies. I also know that I have an appointment with my dentist on 10 AM Wednesday. Suppose right now I don't have plans to do activities other than the above. Then, I will run the REACT! program and enter these activities. You only need to enter known details of an activity. For example, I will enter the day for grocery shopping on Friday, but I don't need to enter the time, because I am not sure when I will go.
On Monday evening, you will be asked to enter to the program what you have actually done throughout Monday. For example, sleeping at home from 12:00 am to 8:00 am; Showering and dressing at home from 8:00am to 8:30am; Travel to work from 8:30am to 9:00am; Working at UCI campus from 9:00am to 12:00pm; …etc. After you finish entering your activities of Monday, you will be asked to enter to the program changes you have made regarding your plans of the following days (i.e., Tuesday till Sunday). For example, if today (Monday) I canceled the appointment with my dentist for Wednesday, I will enter this cancellation to the program. And, if today I also made a dinner appointment with my friends on Thursday 6:00pm at Chilli's. I will have to add this activity to my schedule for Thursday.
On Tuesday night, you will run the program and do the same thing as you do on Monday. The same process will need to be repeated every night till Sunday night.
