You are doing the impossible.
The only correct and natural answer to the question is: ‘living’.
Humankind and its culture encompasses broad and very detailed activities.
It is ALL we do, or don't do, in this World
From work to cleaning ones nose, talking with the neighbour, or doing nothing but being bored.
In order to answer this question one needs to scope the context, the reason why one wants to know and record it.
Questions that need to be answered first:
Why do you ask the question?
And for what purpose will you use the answer?

There may be multiple, like both studying and working.

We’ve been thinking about things like role in life, socio-economic or psychosocial activity situation, or activity in daily life. The first is rather vague, the second isn’t really a common expression, and the third feels too close to “ADL”, which is normally thought of functional assessments like whether you can take care of your own hygiene and nutrition.
