Activities of Daily Living
January 1st

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 have I brought to my name?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Good health begins with Good hygiene. You know how it is when you don't feel Good but when you clean yourself up you feel so much better? Resolve this year to go straight to your hygiene and grooming to snap you out of a physical or mental depressed state. It works!

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Things that creak, jam or stick always remind me of my joints and physical body. That's the first place my mind goes. Resolve this year to move your body and bend your joints the minute you hear or feel something creak, jam or stick. As I always say, "When it's the Truth, it shows up everywhere!"

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Chances are you are an adult reading this and quite capable of contributing to a well-maintained appearance of your personal space. Resolve this year to be more aware of the path you leave in your wake. As I always say, "Like a boat on a lake, we all leave a wake."

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Chances are you are an adult reading this and know how to add and subtract. You know whether you can afford something or not. Resolve this year to be more committed to your financial goals rather than the appearance of financial freedom that you really do not yet have.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Take a more present state of mind in the way you live your Life. Instead of using words or phrases that have no commitment such as - "I'm gonna . . When I . . As soon as . . If only . . I'll try . . and maybe" resolve this year to use words that actually carry a commitment such as, "I am . . I will . . I have . . and I enjoy" and really make things happen for yourself. Enough with the nonsense chatter that means nothing and wastes not only your time, but others time as well.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

When more attention is given to something, then that 'thing' usually wins the attention battle. It is the lack of proper attention that results in failure. It really is as simple as that! If you are going to obsess over food, then resolve this year to make it a happy and healthy obsession and become a food prepper.
