In the world of holistic therapy the connection of mind, body and soul, or as I prefer brain, body, being, is achieved through the application of a variety of activities of daily living. The notion of activities of daily living was developed by Roper, Logan and Tierney in their nursing model based on a model of living which addresses all areas of activities that the person undertakes each day from maintaining a safe environment to sleeping at night. And just in case you are wondering what this nursing model is about here is a list of the areas that are assessed using the model:


  1. maintaining a safe environment

  2. communication

  3. breathing

  4. eating and drinking

  5. elimination

  6. washing and dressing

  7. controlling temperature

  8. mobilisation

  9. working and playing

  10. sleeping
