Survivopedia plants and heatwave

Plants need sunshine to grow, but when the temperatures are too hot, your plants feel the impact. They can wilt, wither, and eventually die from too much heat.

The best way to prepare your plants is to incorporate protection into your garden plan. You can look for local plant varieties that are proven in your area’s weather.

On your hottest days, you’ll still need to take extra precautions, but picking the right kinds will give your plants a better chance.

Survivopedia top survival skills

There is no time like the present for developing the skills and knowledge that you need to survive when SHTF. Some skills can help you survive immediately and amidst the chaos in the aftermath, while other skills can help you survive in the long-run.

Either way, those who have the widest variety of skills and who can learn or adapt new skills quickly and efficiently, will be the most likely to survive in a post-SHTF scenario.

Survivopedia brexit

On Thursday, June 23rd, the citizens of Great Britain voted on the long-awaited question of leaving the European Union (EU), commonly referred to by the nickname of “Brexit.”

Surprising just about the entire chattering class, and not a few progressive-liberal politicians, the people of Great Britain made their voice heard, declaring in a 52-48 majority that they wanted to take their opportunity and leave, abandoning the European Union.

Interestingly enough, the voting for and against Brexit was largely along age-defined lines. Millenials voted strongly in favor of staying in the European Union, while their parents voted strongly in favor of leaving. Fortunately for the parents, they still outnumbered their kids.

Survivopedia low carbsThere are 3 types of nutrients that your body can convert to energy: carbs, fats, and protein.

Carbs are the primary source for most of us but the problem is that they burn up quickly, leaving us hungry and run-down an hour or so after we eat them. Good fats and proteins, on the other hand, burn slowly so they provide level, sustained energy.

Obviously, there are situations that call for each type, but the big thing with carbs is that you need to choose the RIGHT ones, which is a topic for another day. Today, we’re going to talk about good sources of low-carb foods (aka, high protein/fat foods).

Survivopedia 13 agains aging

We all hate the bodily changes that come with age. How is it that we all feel 20 in our minds, yet are betrayed by those wrinkles on the face in the mirror? You can’t stop the clock, but there are plenty of steps that you can take to look and feel great as the hands keep moving!

You may think that this is going to be a fluff piece about getting rid of wrinkles, but you’re wrong.
