Is Prepping Good For You?
I’m sure you readers can come up with even more.
Here’s how they begin their post:
“Preppers actually learn to save money and prevent spending on things unnecessarily. We buy prepping supplies that are often used to sustain our life while it can still be kept long-term. Preppers also cultivatesurvival skills such as gardening and home repair which can save them a pretty penny in the long-run. Since increasing your survival odds is highly correlated to the amount of survival knowledge you have, most preppers will definitely invest their time in learning new skills.”
That, and their list, brings a couple more benefits to mind; self-confidence and peace of mind. I’ve found during my prepping journey, that the more I learned, the more I did and the more I did both, my confidence and peace of mind increased dramatically. I’m almost to Stage 5 in Homestead Dreamer’s “5 Stages of Prepping”. Here’s how they describe Stage 5:
“The last stage a newbie prepper gets to is a place of confidence, contentment, and control. You have changed so much in your lifestyle that when you look back at how you were before, you shake your head and maybe chuckle at how blind or ignorant or wasteful you were. You understand and are grateful to yourself for the changes you (and hopefully your family) have made. There is a peace that (I hope) you feel, knowing that you can handle pretty much anything that gets tossed at you, at least natural disaster-wise. Gone are the days when you obsessed over the news and gear and details. You still pay attention, no doubt about that! The difference is now there is a balance. Now you have remembered to LIVE your life while still being prepared.”
I say I’m almost there because I’m learning new prepping and survival things everyday; it seems the longer my prepper journey goes on, the more there is to discover – and that’s fun! Add that to the list!
