Activities of Daily Living
February 16th

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

Why can't I just surrender to being enLightened
rather than choosing to be difficult and argumentative?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Whack-a-mole! You should consistently check the moles on your body for the ABCDE's - asymmetry, border, color, diameter and elevation. Here is link to learn more about mole-checks.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Arm Circles: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms extended straight out to sides at shoulder height. Keeping shoulders down, do 20 small backward circles, then switch directions and do 20 forward circles.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Listen to a podcast or an audio book while doing your housework. This will not only keep your mind engrossed in learning and curiosity, you will probably do more in-depth cleaning.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Could you handle the amount of money that you pray for or seek? There could be delay in your abundance simply because you have not proven 'energetically' that you can handle it. Take action and prove to the Universe that you are smart with money.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Return what is not yours. This may be clothes, books, gadgetry, dishes, etc. These things may have been borrowed or left at your house. Everything has a place but that place does not have to be in your space.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

We don't eat pasta because its an ugly carb but I do store a lot of it (and I mean a lot) as emergency food. I do consider myself a 'prepper'. I also store a lot of beans and various kinds of rice as well. These foods can be stored for long periods of time when you repackage them with a Food Saver machine. Repackaging these foods will keep humidity, pests and oxygen away. Then keep them away from heat and light as well.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

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

DESCRIPTION: Glutathione is a tri-peptide made up of three amino acids (cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine). It is a key element that prevents the formation of free radicals.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It helps protect against environmental toxins such as; radiation, smoking, x-rays, alcohol poisoning and the side-effects of chemotherapy treatments. It is said to have anti-aging properties. This may mean that if it helps to eliminate environmental toxins, then the body's cells may not age as quickly due to damage.

SOURCES: It is present in all cells in both plants and animals.
