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.

Living in the mindset of lack will only breed more of the same because the mind is tuned-into 'not having'. For instance, thieves are not tuned-in to 'having', they are tuned-into 'not having'. They will never get ahead, they will never have anything of their own and they will never have any financial peace as long as they live in a state of lack. Thieves will always be poor. Always!
