Activities of Daily Living
July 14th

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!

MENTATION QUESTION
Mentate on this question as you follow-through on the ADLs

Why is it easier for me to reconcile with someone who is not a family member than it is for me to reconcile with someone in my own family?

HYGIENE  &  GROOMING
(Activity)

Puffy eyes? Put 2 spoons in the freezer for a few minutes and then hold the backs over them over your closed eyes for a couple of minutes. Puffiness be gone!

 

 

PHYSICAL MOVEMENT
(Activity)

Do not think for one second that a little bit of exercise does not help because it can and will. That one 5-minute or 10-minute bit of exercise can easily motivate you into 30 minutes or one hour more.

 

HOUSEWORK
(Activity)

Cleaning a microwave is easy. Fill up a cup of water and put it in there on high for a few minutes. The steam from the cup will loosen any stuck-on food, and then you can just wipe it away. It’s that simple.

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
(Activity)

If you are looking for financial ideas then go or seek them out from sources that are 'in the know'. I opened my first business at 22 years old and have been working for myself since that time. My first idea came out of Entrepreneur magazine.

 

WORK  &  PRODUCTIVITY
(Activity)

Do not expect anyone to care more about your passion, mission, job, career or hobby more than you do. At the same time, your level passion can become contagious to others.

 

FOOD PREPARATION
(Activity)

If today is not your food prepping day for the week, decide which day it will be. There are healthy foods to be bought, cut, cooked and stored. You must manage your time to fit this into your week.
