It is believed that we should take at least 10,000 steps in one day.  2,000 steps equals 1 mile.  10,000 steps would equal 5 miles.  A pedometer can help you log your steps and will cost anywhere from $7 to $25 or you can download one to your smartphone.

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) is a real term used in healthcare that refers to daily basic self-care activities in an individual's residence, outdoor environment or both. The ability or inability that an individual performs their ADLs is a measure of the functional status of the individual, particularly the injured, those with disabilities and the elderly. Very young children require assistance from adults to perform ADLs since they have not yet developed the skills necessary to perform ADLs on their own.

Basic ADLs (bADLs) are the things we normally do such as bathing, dressing, feeding ourselves, functional mobility, personal hygiene and grooming. Instrumental ADLs (iADLs) are things such as housework, money management, preparing meals, shopping and work.

Sometimes it is necessary to review the rules of kindergarten to remember how to be nice to others and use Good manners. And sometimes we just need to go back to the basics of the 'Activities of Daily Living' in order to take better care of ourselves and start living Life rightly.

Below you will see 7 simple activities to accomplish at some point during the day all under the motivation of the the daily mentation question below. You have 24 hours to get through this question along with the 7 activities. READY? SET? GO!

Activities of Daily Living - Mentation Question

If I waste what I have, then why should I be given more?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Pick up miniature bottles of hand sanitizer to keep in the car, your purse, pocket or desk drawer. These miniature bottles can be picked up at your favorite drugstore, dollar store or large discount store.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

It is believed that we should take at least 10,000 steps in one day. 2,000 steps equals 1 mile. 10,000 steps would equal 5 miles. A pedometer can help you log your steps and will cost anywhere from $7 to $25 or you can download one to your smartphone.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

To freshen bed pillows or throw pillows, toss them in the dryer with a dryer sheet. This will help to eliminate odors due to pets, smoking, spills, etc. It will also help to fluff and reshape the pillows.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

When paying bills (any bills) especially your higher bills, split the payment so that you pay two weeks early and the other 1/2 when the bill is due. In this way the payment is always on time and it doesn't hurt as much.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Everyone is creative and the best place to get your material (ideas) is to immerse yourself in the subject matter. Don't just plunk yourself down in the situation just to criticize it. Get those cogwheels churning.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Eat when you are hungry, not just because it is time to eat. We are usually ready to eat in 5 to 6 hour intervals. Some people require up to 6 small meals a day because their body runs on a higher metabolism. If you know which category you fall into then you should be able to food prep for it.


Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

Choose two (2) of the 'Isoleucine' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.
Get creative!

DESCRIPTION: Isoleucine is an essential amino acid that is part of a branched chain amino acid group with leucine and valine. These three should always be taken together. It is one of several essential amino acids needed in the diet and humans cannot synthesize it from simpler metabolites. Young adults require about 20 mg of this isoleucine per day per kg (or about 8 mg per lb) of body weight. It can be degraded into simpler compounds by enzymes. In a rare, inherited disorder called maple syrup urine disease, an enzyme that is not functioning in the common pathway of isoleucine, leucine and valine causes the buildup of certain metabolites in the urine, resulting in the characteristic odor from which the disease gets its name.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It is needed to form of hemoglobin and regulates blood sugar levels. Therefore, if there is an imbalance, hypoglycemia could develop. It gets metabolized in the muscles and has to be taken with leucine and valine.

FOOD SOURCES: Almonds, beef, cashews, chicken, cottage cheese, eggs, fish, soy, lentils, liver, milk, and seeds.
