Activities of Daily Living
January 12th

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 my work speaks for itself, what is it saying?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

If you are looking to whiten your teeth without spending a lot of money, here is a wonderful little recipe that will whiten your teeth and save you money.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

Remember when I told you about wall push-ups? When you cook, do wall push-ups. Or do refrigerator push-ups. You can even do wall push-ups when you are on the phone if you are wearing a headset or bluetooth. Revisit wall-pushs!

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

If mold and mildew are taking over your shower curtain liner, then just toss it in the washer with a few towels. The towels will help scrub it clean, then just hang it back up to dry.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

If you need or want $10, then use $1 to show the Universe how well you manage it. If you need or want $100, then use $10 to show the Universe how well you can manage it. If you want $1000, then use $100 to show the Universe how well you can manage that. As with anything else in Life, we do have to prove ourselves.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

I always say, "Too much of a Good thing, isn't." When a Good thing becomes too much in amount, time, energy or space and then eclipses everything else in your life, that is when you know something needs to change. It shouldn't take an eclipse to get us to change, but all too often, that is exactly what it takes.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Fill up some ZipLoc baggies with various vegetables that you can just grab and go. So many vegetables are calorie-less that I honestly do not even count them as calories. Radishes, cucumbers, celery, red and green peppers.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement
