Activities of Daily Living
January 6th

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 I waste what I have, then why should I be given more?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Use a small squeegee in the shower after each use. This helps keep the shower clean by keeping soap scum, mold and hard water stains from building up. Just squeegee the walls and glass doors before getting out of the shower. It takes seconds. I bought my little squeegee at the dollar store.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

Drawing-In Ab Exercise: Sit in a chair with your spine straight and your back off the seat rest. Place your hands on your stomach under your belly button, which helps to identify the muscles you need to contract. Draw in your ab muscles. Imagine that you are pulling your stomach muscles all the way to your spine. Hold your abs in for three seconds as you exhale, then release your ab muscles and inhale. Abs-in exhale. Abs-out inhale. The breathing is the hardest part of the exercise.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Show your kitchen towels some Love and wash them. I recommend buying quality kitchen towels rather than the cheapies at the dollar store. You will know what I mean from just the feel. The dollar store is great for some things but definitely not for others, like kitchen towels. You need 7 kitchen towels at a minimum to switch out daily and keep clean without cross contaminating other things.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Check out taking some classes at the local community college, library, grocery store, etc. You would be surprised how inexpensive these classes are and how much you can learn that will either help you create more money or save you more money. Invest in your own education 'first' because no matter what, that is one thing you will always have is your education. I always taught my daughter, "Spend all of your money on education and travel." Travel is education!

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

If you are honest enough with yourself and look close enough at your Life, you will see what you have made a priority and how those priorities have served you. This has everything to do with relationships, money, family, work, health, etc. Take some time today to look at what you have made a priority and how making that 'thing' a priority ultimately served you. Then get busy re-adjusting your priorities.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Enter the grocery store with the intention of healthier and lighter foods. Get dressed up in an outfit that makes you feel Good about yourself. Walk in feeling healthy and strong knowing that you are there in control and set on living a healthier life. Scurrying into the grocery store, looking sloppy, without a set idea on your purchases, is just asking for an impulsive action that will reflect how you feel. Until your reflexive action is wellness - you must train yourself like you would any new experience you would like to master.


Activities of Daily Living - Physical Movement

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

DESCRIPTION: Glycine is a non-essential amino acid that is used to make up glutathione. So it is a helper in making other non-essential amino acids. If too much of this amino acid taken, it can result in lethary and fatigue. Oh, those heavy meals do mean something!

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Helps maintain the immune system. Aids in prostate health and bi-polar depression. Aids in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

FOOD SOURCES: Beans, dairy products, fish, and meat.
