Activities of Daily Living
March 29th

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

Can I stand in my Truth even if
it goes against what others want and costs me my reputation?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

No one just wakes up and has the flu. There is always a prodrome (early symptom) that alerts you that bug is in the area and it is preparing to replicate and take over. Two of the best 'knock it out before it knocks you out' remedies are Oscillococcinum (Oscillo), a homeopathic remedy and Sambucol, a natural remedy made from elderberries that can be purchased at your most popular drugstores. You 'have to' take either of these remedies at early onset and BAM! it's KO (knocked-out).

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Chances are you are going to sit in a chair today. In a stable chair that has no rollers or high backs, keeping all 4 legs of the chair on the ground, lean back and stretch your arms over your head with your legs straight out. You should look like a slanted straight board. You should even feel your belly stretching. Take some nice deep breaths counting in your head to 5. Relax and do it again several times. Oxygenating and stretching your body will feel like you just had a cup of coffee.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Everything should have a 'proper place in space'. I use this approach to housework because the last thing that I want to do with my time is spend it looking for something. It's the smart way to be lazy. LOL! Disorganized and scattered belongings show a lack of respect for one's possessions, which may signal to the Universe that you are not prepared to handle bigger, better or more. WHOA! Vow to clean up your act, then get busy cleaning it up.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

We all know that we should drink more water. Do a 'liquid study' on yourself this week so you can see just how much money you spend on putting liquids in your body. Whether it is a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, a can of beer or a bottle of water, log it in your 'liquid study' so you can see just how much money you are literally pissing away every week.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

I'm a very happy person in the morning. If you aren't a morning person then I can be your worst nightmare when you wake up. Because I Love my mornings so much, there are plenty of things that I can stop doing the night before without blinking an eye. It's about commitment to myself. More than anything, your work ethic and productivity is based on your level of commitment to yourself. Recommit to your own happiness today.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

I'm a 'cook and freeze maniac'. I cook and freeze a lot of different things including taco meat and cubed chicken breast. I individual portion the taco meat and cubed chicken breast and freeze in ZipLoc baggies. The individual ZipLoc baggies go in one big gallon size freezer baggie, which are easily thawed and added to a salad. I always have a big stainless steel bowl of salad ready in the refrigerator to grab a handful. The salad 'must be' in a stainless steel bowl, which will keep it crisp for DAYS!

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

and incorporate them into your diet today.
Get creative!

FOOD SOURCES: Alfalfa, almonds, avocado, beans, beef, bee pollen, blue cheese, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, corn, eggs, grains, legumes, liver, lobster, mother's milk, mushrooms, nutritional yeast, nuts, oats, onions, oranges, peanuts, peas, pork, potato, raw honey, royal jelly, salt water fish, seeds, soybeans, spirulina, sprouts, sunflower seeds, tomato, fresh vegetables, green vegetables, walnuts, wheatgerm, wheatgrass and whole grain products.
