Activities of Daily Living
March 20th

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 do I meet hostility and opposition?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Cystitis is an infection of the bladder and is most common in 'young' sexually active females. Parents that's a HUGE hint! This is probably because they do not yet know that cleaning up oneself after sex is Good hygiene. Urinating after sex helps to flush out any bacteria that may be in the urethra and bladder. By the way, grown men and young males, as well as grown women, can get cystitis too from poor 'after sex' personal hygiene.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Your lungs are like sponges that need to fill with air. You need lung capacity to receive oxygen simply because your RBCs (red blood cells) need oxygen. Without oxygen, you die. Hemoglobin is the protein inside RBCs that carries oxygen. Your lungs are VITAL organs, which is why your lungs are monitored when your 'vitals' are taken. Try these simple ways to increase your lung capacity.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Your bedroom should be as or more pristine and peaceful than the best hotel room you have ever slept in. Too much of the wrong activity in the bedroom can cloud the mind and create brain fog, confusion, sleeplessness, overwhelming thoughts and bad dreams, especially the closer anything is to the head. All things have their proper place, even if you have limited space.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Back in the day, when I was going through my most financially crippling times is when I learned the most about 'managing' money. I have always been a 'quality over quantity' person but it was when I had very little money that I learned why 'quality over quantity' was so important. In the long run, quality saved me more money but quantity cost me more money. Like any other managing situation in Life, if you can't manage, then you don't rise.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

It's easy to tell when someone has a passion or when they are on a mission because their actions are evidence. This website began with an idea (a seed) that blossomed into so many other topics that I had not yet considered at its conception. I planted the seed, which means I took action on the idea. I watered the seed (idea) every single day and it kept growing. If something is truly your passion or if you are on a mission, it will be evidenced through your actions and you will not be able to stop doing it.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Eggs are the perfect food and because they are so perfect we go through eggs like they are candy. In the refrigerator I keep one 18 egg carton marked 'hard' and one 18 egg carton unmarked to use for cooking. Between the two of us we go through (at least) 36 eggs a week. Whether eating a hard-boiled egg or using the raw egg in cooking, sometimes it's yolk in and sometimes yolk out. Sometimes I just put 6 hard-boiled eggs in The Scorpion King's lunch for his protein entree. Regardless, we eat a lot of eggs. Start crackin'.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

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

DESCRIPTION: This is a carotenoid and is typically abundant in your eye tissue.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It is said that Lutein helps to block out visible blue light, which is one of the major causes of light-induced damage to the eyes. The research is still waiting to be documented.

SOURCES: Collard greens, spinach, fruits and other vegetables.
