You should have been given some kind of "diary" along with your monitor. This is where you write down what you did throughout the day. Example, 9:00am Took a walk no problems. 9:30am Took a shower felt a fluttering in my chest. If for some reason you weren't given a diary, then you can use a plain old piece of paper. Make sure you write down anything significant that you felt along with the time and what you were doing when it happened. This is a huge help when trying to interpret the results.
