Activities of Daily Living
March 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!

Activities of Daily Living - Mentation Question

How is my situational awareness? Why do I allow myself to get upset over trivial matters?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Good hygiene is one the most important contributors to your survival. Think about the issues in the poorest of nations. Most aches, pains, illnesses, diseases and syndromes begin with a lack of self-care. Bad hygiene can mean the difference between Life and death because it signifies the beginning. Wash, brush, floss and drink your water!

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

It's difficult to follow your passion when you are tired, lazy and lack motivation or inspiration. Exercise stimulates your metabolism and gets your energy levels rolling again. Get some air! If you don't enjoy it, then you won't do it. Spend 20 serious minutes today getting your body moving, your blood circulating and your heart pumping.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Get out the screwdriver and walk around the house tightening up screws. This would be screws on the doorknobs. Screws on door jams. Screws on drawer handles. Screws on furniture. It's just Good ol' fashioned Feng Shui to keep things bound, tight and screwed in properly. Screws literally hold your Life together. You don't want to walk around in Life with a 'screw loose' do you? LOL! Do it and you will feel much more solid. Strange but True!

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that you can't spend what you don't have, but then again, yes you can. Running up credit cards to make yourself feel better will only show the Universe that you can't handle money, so why should you be blessed with more money? Instead of spending more money, unload some possessions and make a donation to Goodwill. Show the Universe you have plenty of self-control.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Know your audience! Do not share your passion, ideas or thoughts with people who don't understand you or who have a tendency to poo-poo everything that isn't part of who they are. Surround yourself with supportive and like-minded individuals. Know your audience and keep your mouth shut around those who cannot handle who you are. YOU are not any of their business! So zip it!

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Yesterday I provided a link for you on how to grow your own herbs indoors. You can buy the herbs to get you started just about anywhere. You can buy the seedlings at health food stores, grocery stores and even big home improvement chain stores. There is no Good reason not to do it. It's so easy you have to do it.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

Choose two (2) of the 'Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.
Get creative!

DESCRIPTION: Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a very potent antioxidant. It helps to protect cells from free radicals. Free radicals are the byproducts of energy production, which means they are left over products. Even though there are ten common coenzyme Q's, Q10 is the only one found in human tissue. Because of this fact, Q10 tends to diminish with age and therefore must be supplemented in the diet. Preferably supplemented through food sources.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It is used in the treatment of heart disease, high blood pressure and for supporting the immune system. It is used widely in Japan for the treatment of the heart. There is some research that supports Q10 benefiting allergies, asthma and respiratory conditions. It's also been used in the treatment of mental dysfunction, aging, candidiasis, diabetes, obesity and multiple sclerosis.

FOODS: The largest amounts of CoQ10 are found in mackerel, salmon and sardines.
