Activities of Daily Living

October 1st

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

Am I brave enough to be part of the solution or do I just watch and complain about the problem?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Did you know that towel drying your hair can give you split ends? Swap out your towel for a t-shirt. Towel dry your hair with a t-shirt and you will notice a difference.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

Put a note on you computer keyboard or on the perimeter of the computer screen that says, "Straighten up!" This will help you stay on top of your posture and remind you to pull in your lower abdomen and pull your shoulders back. While you are at it, put a note on your automobile dashboard too.

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

To get water stains out of your stainless steel appliances, sinks and faucets use a half of a lemon to scrub stainless steel. It will also make your kitchen smell lemon fresh and inviting.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Dump your browsing history while you are looking for airfare. Think about it, if I can see each page getting clicked on my website in 'real time' (including the IP address), then these much bigger companies will be able to see you searching for an airfare and raise the prices in the middle of your search. Keep dumping that browsing history when you are looking for travel deals.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

It is my personal belief that everyone wants to be trained to do something right, even if they don't know it. Affirmations work because they train the brain to think differently. It's nothing but brain-training or brain-washing. Train your brain to think differently using affirmations here!

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

Keep bananas fresh for longer periods of time by wrapping the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. You can also separate each banana and wrap the end of each banana. The plastic wrap will block the ethylene gas from releasing out of the stem thereby causing the banana to ripen too fast

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

DESCRIPTION: Astragalus originated in China and is known to treat viral infections. There have been some clinical studies in China with Astralagus which show the effectiveness of this herb in fighting the common cold. Astragalus has been shown to be useful where the immune system has been damaged by radiation or chemicals. Many herbalists say Astragalus helps to prevent heart arrhythmias. When taken orally it is said to increase the immune-stimulating compounds in the body.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Astragalus helps to stimulate the immune system and fight viral infections. Astragalus may help to lower blood pressure and aid in the cleansing the liver and gallbladder.

If you are diabetic, you MUST consult with your physician before taking Astragalus because it may increase the effects of diabetic medications or glucose elevating agents. Astragalus may also increase the effects of medications for high blood pressure, anti-viral conditions or blood-thinning purposes. It has also been known to interfere with immunosuppressive therapy, thereby compromising immune function.
