Activities of Daily Living
March 10th

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

Do I revere myself more than my Creator? In other words, do I prop myself up more than or give myself more props than I do God?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

One way to combat coffee breath without giving up your coffee is to drink a glass of water afterward. Caffeine causes dry mouth, which stimulates bacterial growth. Drinking water will promote saliva production and keep coffee breath at bay.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Walk it off! If you feel moody, like you are going to lose your mind or slap someone into next year, channel that energy into a brisk walk. If you are going to burn your fuse, then burn some calories while you are at it.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

There is something about routine that just gets the job done. Change up your housework routine so you can be ready for anything. Routine is what will keep you organized, happy and rested. The 3 R's will get you there - routine, ritual and regimen.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Watch for BOGO (Buy One Get One) Free! This is usually more popular in grocery stores or shoes stores, more than big discount stores but is present in both. Watch for these deals because they can save you a ton of money. I am the BOGO Spottin' Queen!

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Call your idea people and schedule an idea jam session over coffee or tea. Tell your idea people that it's time to sit down and kick around ideas, theirs and yours. Have a brain-storming jam session with your 'idea posse'. I think this is what some people call 'a meeting'.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Make certain when you are reading labels on food, that you take into account the serving size. For instance one can of Progresso soup has 2 servings. When the can says, "120 calories per serving" then that is 240 calories for the entire can.

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.

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