Activities of Daily Living
September 3rd

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

How do I influence others to be Good, bad or indifferent?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

If you have had enough hours sleeping and continue to wake up tired, record yourself sleeping to see if you snore. If you snore, you are NOT sleeping and you may have sleep apnea.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Remember the children's exercise routine, Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes. It's a simple exercise touching your head, shoulders, knees, then toes. Get up and do 10 rounds.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Prevention is better than a cure. Share this motto with your family so that everyone gets 'the get' that picking up after oneself will save time, arguments and aggravation.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

I personally know someone who actually makes a living filling out online surveys, using coupons and entering sweepstakes. Her husband estimates her winnings at about $30,000 a year. It can be done and it is done, by someone.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Gossip and mindless chatter in the workspace is juvenile. Have enough sense to know that participating in such behavior is unattractive and unprofessional. It also reveals your character regardless of who you are talking about or who you are talking to.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

This is a great idea for portioning and freezing soup. I freeze soup in individual serving bowls because I don't like leftover baggies that turn to trash. Still, I get that some people don't have room in their freezer for the bowls. This video is perfect when you need more room to freeze your soups.


Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

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

FOOD SOURCES: Dried apricots, baked potatoes, dried prunes, cantaloupe, bananas, legumes, wheat brain, yams, poultry, fish, dairy products, avocados, dates, figs, brown rice, fruit, blackstrap molasses, brewer's yeast, garlic, nuts and spinach.
