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.

Your bedroom should be as or more pristine and peaceful than the best hotel room you have ever stayed in. Too much of the wrong activity in the bedroom can cloud the mind and create brain fog, confusion, sleeplessness, overwhelming thoughts and bad dreams, especially the closer everything is to the head.

During my most financially crippling times is when I learned the most about 'managing' money. I have always been a 'quality over quantity' person but it was when I had very little money that I learned why 'quality over quantity' was so important.

I watered the seed (idea) every single day by contributing to its growth and it kept growing. If something is truly your passion and you are on a mission to see it manifest, then it will be evidenced through your actions.
Eggs are the perfect food and because they are so perfect we go through eggs like they are candy. In the refrigerator I keep one 18 egg carton marked 'hard' and one 18 egg carton unmarked to use for cooking. Between the two of us we go through (at least) 36 eggs a week.

Regardless, we eat a lot of eggs.
