Activities of Daily Living
January 20th

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

When do I refuse to listen because it doesn't suit my interest or ego?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Skin is actually our first piece of clothing (our birthday suit). It's like a raincoat for our internal organs, bones and tissues. It's a container, it's stretchy, soft, hairy, waterproof and it repairs itself. For these reasons and more, your skin needs to be cleansed, exfoliated and moisturized regularly. Read more about skin here!

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

It is very important that you take your joints through their purposed ROM (range of motion). ROM exercises help to relieve stiffness, achiness and increase mobility. In order to get from point A to point B your body requires that you reach, bend, extend, turn and flex. This is why Yoga is such a healthful tool. Buy a mat and join a class or buy a mat and follow along with some YouTube yoga.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

You just might be shocked at the amount of weight you will automatically lose when you take on a 'Lighten My Load' mentality. One thing always leads to another. Always! When you lighten your load in one area, you will see yourself lightening your load in other areas. Whenever I'm set on shedding a few pounds, I always tap into a 'Lighten My Load' mentality and begin with unloading some possessions.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Pay attention to your choice of words and how you may be focused more on lack, than abundance. Your words alone should tell you which direction you are headed because what you focus on expands. We tend to go in the direction of our focus.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

"The subconscious mind is man's faithful servant but one must be careful to give it the right orders. Man has ever a silent listener at his side -- his subconscious mind." ~Florence Scovel Shinn, from The Game of Life and How to Play It. Read about affirmations and how to think more positively here!

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Store all of your spices in a cool, dark place and not above or around your stove. While they might be an easy reach during cooking, it is the humidity, light and heat will cause herbs and spices to lose their flavor.


Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement
