Why people don’t survive disasters…
Regardless of your level of commitment to surviving in times of chaos or turmoil, there are many places where you can make mistakes that will do more harm than good in the long run.
Even the most experienced preppers with years of experience in managing and surviving catastrophic events can make these mistakes. Chances are you already know about most, if not all of the mistakes listed here, however you may be committing them at this very moment.
Prepping as a way of life can present many challenges as well as rewards. Interestingly enough, even people that have been living off grid or prepping for decades can still make some very common mistakes.
Getting everything ready for the disaster…
But being prepared for anything takes away some of the fear and you can face tomorrow knowing that no matter what happens, you are ready. Your family will be protected and in good hands. Nothing and no one will be able to harm you.
Getting everything ready for the disaster is a good idea because it helps you feel more at peace, more aware of the world. However, staying on top of things for an extended period of time might be a bit more difficult than you hoped for. Life gets in the way and you feel like you never have time to do what you really want to do.
Those who want to be prepared should focus on prepping in effective ways to avoid apathy or making poor decisions.
