A lot of people think that since “our side” won, that we can ease up and take a break from prepping and training–maybe even spend some of that time and money on things that are more fun.
I’ve always advocated that you should live your life while you prep. It’s like a diet–if all you do is starve yourself to loose weight, eventually you’re going off the wagon, hard. Chances are, you may not climb back on for a long time, if ever. So eat what you like, just do it in moderation and get plenty of exercise, plenty of sleep and maybe meditate a bit. You’d be amazed at how well that works for losing weight, and a similar concept makes prepping a lot more pleasant than this eternal “OMG, we need to prep for the end of the world!” crap I see so much of.
Besides, if the world ends, by definition, you’re going with it, no matter what. 🙂
So, since I have some excess time on my hands these days, I’ve been doing some trolling about the Intertubz, looking for bite-sized tidbits that can help with that sort of prepping. Most people who work generally don’t feel they can spare 30 minutes a day to read or watch videos, no matter how important it might be long term, and I get that. I was that guy for years. So I’m going to start posting some things, hopefully one per day, that don’t take that sort of time. There may also be a link to the long form on the subject, but the post plus the link will take you less than 10 minutes to read, listen to or watch.
First post is below, on the C-A-T Tourniquet. Enjoy.
