Activities of Daily Living
September 8th

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 take my daydreams or night dreams seriously or do I wake up and shrug them off?

Activities of Daily Living - Hygiene and Grooming

Your navel is a breeding ground for bacteria. Researchers found 2,368 unique species of bacteria after swabbing just 60 belly buttons After showering or swimming, make certain you dry your navel, especially if you have an innie.

Activities of Daily Living - Physical Activity

One of the quickest ways to altar your bad mood is to exercise. So essentially, going for a walk when you are upset or aggravated can change your mood significantly within less than 30 minutes. Remember this phrase, "I'm going for a walk."

Activities of Daily Living - Housework and Cleaning

Use a clean toothbrush to clean your earbuds with soap and water. If you don't use earbuds, chances are your children do. You might be surprised at the amount of film caked on them.

Activities of Daily Living - Financial Management

Fast food is not cheap, and it's not even fast anymore. The grocery store is always going to be cheaper and more nutritional than fast food. Why pay a business to make you fat? Even if you are in a hurry, popping into the grocery store to grab a quick bite is better.

Activities of Daily Living - Work and Productivity

Some people were not born with, or taught, a Good work ethic. If you are that person, you can learn. A Good work ethic starts with self-discipline because your discipline will ensure that you are punctual, professional, balanced and using your time wisely.

Activities of Daily Living - Food Preparation

I cannot stress how important it is to have spare food on hand in case of an emergency. Even if your dollars are maximally stretched, you can still store food for emergencies. Go to your nearest dollar store and spend a few dollars a week loading up on some dry and canned Goods.

Activities of Daily Living - Today's Healthful Nutrient

Choose two (2) of the 'Boron' foods below
and incorporate them into your diet today.

SOURCES: Almonds, cider, dates, fruits, grains, green leafy vegetables, nuts, peanuts, prunes, raisins, soybeans, and wine.
