Activities of Daily Living
February 3rd

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

Do I have conviction or confliction?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

I'm a hugger and a kisser on the cheeker. What can I say, "I'm lovable!" I have found the best way not to hug and kiss others during 'cold and flu crowded room party season' is to stand a little back, wave my hand and say, "I just got over a cold." And then no one will lean in for the kiss or hug.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

Do you have a motivating theme song? Everyone should have a motivating theme song or CD that makes them pick up speed. My motivating CD is 'Yanni - LIVE! at the Acropolis'. Not only does that CD make me reflect on my Life, it makes me want to be more active and participate in my Life.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Your bedroom should look better and more luxurious than any hotel room that you ever stay in. Your bedroom is 'the most' private and intimate part of your personal space and should be a reflection of peace, Love and intimacy. That sounds so psychedelic but I believe it to be true. Give your bedroom some Love today and it will give you Love, back. ooh-la-la

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Set a financial goal today. You might have bills to pay, shopping to do, a luncheon with a friend, a party to attend and toiletries to buy, but set that financial goal. While you should not wake up or go to sleep thinking about money, you should always be considering where your money is, how much you have and where it is going.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Think 'purge and produce'. Everything should move, flow and circulate. When you remain in a constant state of 'purge and produce' then you will purge what you are not using or what is no longer working for you and strive to produce and yield bigger and better outcomes. It's like trimming the bushes, trees or your garden. Purge and produce!

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

If you are feeling the need to bake, it does not mean that you have to put your hand in the cookie jar. Share the Love! In fact, to better your own awareness of ingredients, try baking gluten-free or sugar free just to see how it goes. Search for an easy baking recipe today and share the Love!

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

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

Low levels of tyrosine have been connected with hypothyroidism. Tyrosine is used in our body to make epinephrine and dopamine. It reduces body and is an appetite suppressant.
