Activities of Daily Living
August 25th

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

What does my judgment of others look like when I have done, or currently do, much worse?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

To keep your washing machine clean, run a high temperature wash (without adding clothes) using a scoop of bleach-containing laundry powder or a laundry tablet to keep the machine hygienically clean.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Oblique Crunches: Lie on back, with knees bent. Cross left ankle over opposite knee. Place right hand behind head and lift right shoulder toward left knee. Release down. Do 10 to 12 reps, then switch sides.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Make your own window-cleaning spray. Use the old empty sprayer and fill 2/3 of it with cold tap water and 1/3 of it with white vinegar. Use as normal. Use newspapers to polish the window after you spray with your solution.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Want and need are two different things. Before you make that 'want' purchase, ask yourself if you were suddenly off work for a couple of days or up to a week if you could still afford that purchase. If you still make the 'want' purchase after answering that question then you may be fooling others but you won't be fooling yourself.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Map out your route and remember to count your travel time. In other words, if you need to be at work for 8 hours and then run an errand before and after work, then make certain you include your travel time. Not including travel time in the 'map out' is what can end up making you late.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Putting hot food in the refridgerator can lead to uneven cooling, which can cause food poisoning. It can take a long time for the temperature in the middle of the food to drop, which creates the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply.


Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

Choose two (2) of the 'Vitamin B1' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.

FOOD SOURCES: Alfalfa sprouts, almonds, asparagus, avocado, barley, bee pollen, Brewer's yeast, broccoli, brussel sprouts, chickpeas, dates, egg yolks, figs, fish, flour, garlic, kelp, kidney beans, lentils, liver or organ meats, navy beans, oatmeal, onion, oranges, parsley, peanuts, peas, pecans, plums, pork, dried prunes, raisins, wild rice, rice bran, salmon, seeds, soybeans, spirulina and sunflower seeds, green vegetables, watercress, wheat germ, whole grain cereals, and wheatgrass.
