Are You Prepared Mentally?

Are You Prepared Mentally?

You could have all the latest and top-of-the-range survival gear but if your head isn’t in the game, you won’t get very far during times of crisis.

You need to be able to stop and take the time to actually think about what is happening around you and how you are going to fight through it to survive.

You can’t let fear make you believe that it’s game over. Fear is nothing but a lie. Fear is in your mind, it isn’t real. You need to be ready to fight that fear head on, rid it from your mind and learn to think clearly. Only you can decide to no longer believe that lie, it is a choice that only you can make.

By thinking clearly, you can think of the safest and best option of getting what needs doing done.

With the lies of fear come panic and this, even though the knowledge is inside of you, will not allow you to see what should be done. You will go around in circles until eventually you give up and feel defeated.

Prepping is not just about buying supplies or reading books, you must also prepare your mind for survival.

We are all going to face an emergency or a disaster at some point in our lives but if you take the time to prepare mentally, you can rid yourself of the fear and panic and allow yourself to think clearly during these times of stress.

How do we do this? It all starts with having confidence in your abilities. Research information and put into regular practice everything that you learn.

Now I am not saying that you should put yourself in danger to practice. You should always do it in a controlled environment.

Try turning your utilities off for a few hours to get yourself used to how it will be when it happens for real. Did you need anything during that time that you didn’t have? These kinds of little tests are great at getting you thinking about things that you may not have thought about before. For example, how did you prepare your food?

How about turning them off for longer periods of time? You may be thinking “What’s the point?” but believe me, when it happens for real, you will be in a much better place mentally to deal with it.

Any plans that you have in place for bugging out or in case of a fire, practice them all and do so regularly. Get the whole family involved and if you have children, make sure to involve those too.

When a crisis happens for real, your mind will kick into auto and will immediately tell you what you need to be doing.

It is important that you start this today, don’t wait until tomorrow as tomorrow is not guaranteed for any of us. Do it today!
