Learn to Survive in Adverse Circumstances
Learning about survival isn’t just for people who like to go on hikes in the mountains alone or those that move to a place a hundred miles from anyone else. Everyone needs to learn some survival skills because we tend to be lulled into a sense of security when, in fact, we don’t know when the next disaster will hit.
What kind of disasters should we prepare survival skills for?
Natural Disasters: Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Wildfires, Floods
Not so Natural Disasters: Pandemics, Extended Power Outages, Riots, Car Wreck, Plane Crash
There may never be a time in your life that you need to use these skills and if that is the case, that is wonderful! However, it certainly doesn’t hurt to learn how to do some “old fashioned” things just in case the unexpected happens.
I’ve listed some articles I found below that will help you get started in learning some survival skills you may need in the future. If you are interested in getting started with prepping, click here.

I think that we have been conditioned to “trust the system” in the U.S. and we tend to be sadly lacking in the skills we would need to survive should the worst happen. It doesn’t even have to be the worst! There’s a saying “the one constant in life is change”, and if there’s one thing that I can know for a fact, it’s that. Every time I thought my life was on an easy track for a while, there was always a crazy turn of events that I never saw coming. We don’t need to live our life scared, but we do need to do some planning in case something does happen.
