Activities of Daily Living
September 26th

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 was I afraid to know more and ask another question?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

If you cannot afford to buy probiotics to put 'friendly flora' back into your gastrointestinal tract, eat yogurt daily. You can buy perfectly healthy yogurt for .50 cents per serving that has plenty of replenishing friendly flora in it.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

If you have to hold on to something to stand up or sit down, then you may be more out of shape than you thought. Study yourself today and see how much help you need in order to stand up and sit down. This will help you identify the types of exercise you need most immediately.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Well you can't take it with you and you certainly can't use it all. A purge of 'stuff' three times a year is always a great idea. Mark your calendar for Mercury Retrograde periods since it happens 3X per year. If you are going to splurge, then splurge your energy on a purge.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Plant some financial seeds by giving to others. Go to the dollar store and spend $20 on 20 food items. Take those 20 food items to the local food pantry. Most of us can lose $20 a month and we wouldn't miss it or we spend $20 a month on things we don't need. Be a utilitarian and put your money to Good use.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Before you decide to reward yourself for a job well done, ask yourself if you really deserve it. Just because you did what you were required to do does not justify a reward. Going above and beyond the call of duty is what justifies reward.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

You won't eat more fruit unless you buy it. Incorporate a couple of pieces of fruit in your diet today. Even local convenient marts (gas stations) carry fruit now, making it even easier to eat healthy.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

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

SOURCES: Liver, oats, oranges, shellfish, nuts, raisins, salmon, almonds, avocados, barley, beans, beets, blackstrap molasses, pecans, radishes, raisins, seafood, soybeans, green leafy vegetables, broccoli, dandelion greens, garlic, lentils seeds, cocoa powder, beans, whole grains, and mushrooms.
