Every New Year brings in a list of resolutions that you commit to in order to improve yourself, so why not add a few of these preparedness-minded ones to the list?
- Get Into a Survival Level of Fitness. Armchair commandos and Internet warriors are all very well now, but you’ll want a little more than that in an emergency!
- Attend a Training Course. Depending on your level of skill, this may be something like advanced tactics and room clearing, or something as simple as basic gun safety and proper handling.
- Expand Emergency Food Stocks. If you have no food, try to keep enough around for 2 weeks. If you have a month’s worth try 2 months. It’s all about expanding your level of preparedness from small, limited disasters to the larger ones that needs greater amounts of supplies.
- Learn Some New Skills. Ever made a Swedish Fire Torch before? How about an electrolyte solution? Can you help someone suffering from a knife wound or build a snow cave? Knowledge is worth its weight in gold when you can’t just buy items and access limitless information whenever you wish.
- Treat a Personal Health Issue. If you’re properly fit and 100% healthy, great! Most of us aren’t, however, and so fixing one important issue this year could be extremely valuable. Maybe you can buy a non-electric diabetes kit with extra test strips, get surgery to improve your eyes so you don’t need glasses, or get that achy tooth finally taken care of.
- Add some helpers to your home or land. Cats and dogs can help with mice and other intruders, while those of you with more land might add some chickens, hogs, or bees to your preparedness list.
- Add a New Tool to Your Stocks. A survival knife, hatchet, or machete would be a good tool that would be useful now and in the event of an emergency.
- Finish Your Survival Binder. Finally collect all those papers and bit of important information you need to have a proper survival binder in the event of an emergency.
- Pay down debts. This has the twofold advantage of helping you through rough patches with fewer payments each month and giving you additional cash for various uses when things are going well.
- Find a like-minded person to add to your group. People are among the best assets to have in an emergency. If you can find just one other person, you’ll have made a great stride in your preparations.
