Activities of Daily Living
January 31st

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 have I been more appreciated, acknowledged or welcomed by others more than those in my own family?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

To get rid of shoe odor, sprinkle baby powder in your shoes and let them sit overnight. Baby powder sucks up the odor. Dump out the excess or wear them as is.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

Don't let anything stop you from working out. If you plan to watch a movie or sports game, that means several hours of your time will be in front of the TV. This should automatically mean you will ride the stationary bike, glider, ellipitcal, etc., for 1 hour during that movie or game.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

If you have been wanting to move out or have someone move in, then act as though it is about ready to occur and start preparing for the move(-in,-out). Let the Universe know you are ready for change by preparing the space for the change.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

If you are wondering where all you money has gone, look at your personal care products. Do not fall for every advertising line that promises you will look any different tomorrow than you do today.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Call someone who knows more than you about something you want to improve upon in your own life. If you know a trainer, ask for ideas. If you know a financial person, ask for money ideas. Don't ask the internet and then do nothing. Ask a close and honest friend!

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Use smaller plates. This will make it harder to load the plate 3 inches high and will help you eat a lot less.


Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

Choose two (2) of the 'VITAMIN B6' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.
Get creative!

DESCRIPTION: Vitamin B6 is a multi-function nutrient which promotes mental and physical health. The body is unable to store B6 so it must be replenished every day. It is soluble in both water and alcohol. It is rapidly inactivated in the presence of heat, sunlight or air. It is essential in the metabolism of tryptophan and is needed for utilization of certain other amino acids. Deficiencies could include dermatitis around the eyes and mouth, carpal tunnel syndrome, neuritis, anorexia, nausea and vomiting. It is needed for the proper absorption of Vitamin B12. It is involved in more bodily functions that any other nutrient.

FOOD SOURCES: Alfalfa sprouts, avocados, banana, bee pollen, beef, beets, bell pepper, blackstrap molasses, Brewer's yeast, brown rice and other whole grains, buckwheat sprouts, cabbage, cantelope, carrots, chicken, corn, eggs, fish, grains, greens, lemon, meat, nutritional yeast, nuts, oats, oranges, peanuts, peas, prunes, raisins, soybeans, spinach, spirulina, all kinds of sprouts, sunflower seeds, green vegetables, wheatbran, wheatgerm, wheatgrass, whole wheat, and walnuts.
