Activities of Daily Living
April 19th

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 was so Good that made me say, "I can't believe it!" but yet, it was True?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Vinegar is one of the most powerful products to combat bacteria. Soak a clean cloth in vinegar and then wipe all of the surfaces in the bathroom. Pour some vinegar down the drains (sink and bathtub) and about once a week, rinse the sink with vinegar.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Before you decide to purchase exercise equipment, exercise CD's from the infomercials or a bicycle to enjoy this summer, check CraigsList or yard sales for great buys. There are plenty of people who did not honor their New Year's commitment from 2 years ago and they are probably ready to sell.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

I rarely use my dryer. I put the clothes on hangers and then hang them on the shower rod to dry overnight. When I do use the dryer for towels and socks then I use a large piece of aluminum foil rolled into a ball to absorb the electrical charges, which in turn keep the towels and socks static free.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Everything needs to circulate including your body, your blood and your money. Stagnated money can look like a pile of books. Circulate your books by either donating them to a used book store or participating in an online book swap at

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

You would be surprised at what you can teach yourself. I learned how to write code (for this website) because I was motivated to do so and I didn't want to wait for someone else to do it for me (when they got around to it). It does not matter what you want to do, if you are motivated, you can teach yourself anything.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Everyone should have some canned Goods on hand just in case of 'anything'. Next time you see canned soup on sale, grab a case or two and put it in your 'food prepper' area. The same goes with canned tuna. Think of yourself as a survivalist instead of someone who will be scrambling in case of an emergency.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

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

DESCRIPTION: Selenium is a very powerful anti-oxidant, especially when coupled with Vitamin E. This essential mineral is a component of the antioxidant glutathione. Selenium protects the immune system and prevents the formation of free radicals damaging the body.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Working in concert with Vitamin E, they work to produce antibodies to maintain healthy cardiovascular health. It assists in pancreatic function and keeping tissue elastic. It supports the cells and their intracellular structures. It also plays a role in maintaining healthy vision.

SOURCES: Brazil nuts, brewer's yeast, broccoli, brown rice, chicken, clams, cooked oysters, dairy products, garlic, liver, lobster, molasses, onions, salmon, seafood, tourla, tuna, vegetables, wheat germ and whole grains.
