For activity monitoring clients should be instructed to record their activity in the 1 hour time slots throughout the day, and to record their associated level of pain for each time period.

For activity scheduling clients should be instructed to plan and schedule desired activities in advance, and to record whether the scheduled activities were completed, and to record their associated level of pain.
