        How do you spend your day?  How would you like to spend your day .  This Activity Log will help you identify how you spend your time each day. A memory impairments  due to brain injury might interfere with your recall of how you spend your time.  Under the best circumstances - it is too easy to forget time spent talking to colleagues, making coffee, eating lunch, etc. Memory can also function poorly when you are at a low ebb during the day.

      Keep an Activity Log for several days. Without modifying your behavior, write down the time that you begin things, and the time you stop.  Keep track of each activity from the moment you get up in the morning, until you fall asleep at night. Every time you change activities, whether opening mail, working, making coffee, dealing with colleagues, gossiping, exercising, shopping, etc., write down the time of the change. Save your used Daily Activity Logs to determine how you spend your time, and what types of changes that you want to make. 

          Don't hesitate to call us with additional questions and concerns at 206-621-8558.
