Activities of Daily Living
September 23rd

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

What is the best investment I can make with my Life?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

It may be time to replace your toiletries, lotions and make-up. Bite the bullet and toss your old products. Start fresh with a new look and a new outlook with fresher products.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Grab as much movement and exercise as you can, when you can. Most people will have some sort of exercise equipment at home. If you cannot find an hour to exercise, then grab 20 minute intervals throughout the day.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Spending money on glass cleaners and paper towels is not necessary to clean mirrors or windows. Use vinegar and an old newspaper to keep your windows and mirrors shining as new. When your mirrors and windows are clean, the whole house appears cleaner.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Do not create a new bill when you have outstanding bills. There is a big difference between want and need. Take care of your needs and you will want a lot less thereby having more. Less is more.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Following directions will not only save you time, it will save you hassel, worry and often times it will save you money too. If the time is set or the rules are in place, then make Life easy on yourself by just simply following directions.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Take a picture of recipes, spices and staples before you go to the grocery store. This will help you remember the ingredients you need and it will help you stock the ingredients that you are about to run out of or that you may need in the future.


Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

Choose two (2) of the 'Bilberry' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.

DESCRIPTION: Bilberry contains compounds known as anthocyanosides, which are very potent antioxidants. It is also rich in bioflavonoids, manganese, phosphorus, iron and zinc. It contains many important phytochemicals including arbutin, which may benefit the urinary system. There is some research that indicates it can regenerate visual purple, which is necessary for healthy night vision because it strengthens the capillaries. The capillaries are small veins that surround the eyes, therefore the circulation around the eyes is improved. The anthocyanosides may also strengthen the capillaries in the retina, which may help slow macular degeneration.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Helps improve night vision, cataracts; recovery from strokes, ulcers; treating angina, diarrhea, glaucoma, menstrual cramps, urinary function and varicose veins. It is also helpful for Raynaud's Disease.

SOURCES: Fruit. It's relatives are blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, grape, huckleberry, plum and wild cherry.
