Common sense tells us that we can’t be prepared for everything. There are simply too many things that can go wrong on an everyday basis to cover them all. Just when you think you have all your bases covered, along comes an event that wasn’t a part of “the plan”. The basic goal you should keep in mind is to minimize these events by making prepping a part of your normal lifestyle.
1. Make prepping a routine activity. When prepping becomes more of a routine activity, it becomes easier to make it a regular part of your normal lifestyle. As a result, you will often be able to minimize the effects of the majority of events that occur on a day to day basis.
2. Keep changes to your normal routine small in the beginning. Radical changes of any type require serious adjustments in your lifestyle. They also require serious planning for them to be successful. Making big changes in your lifestyle may create additional problems you don’t need in the beginning stages. Small changes in your daily routine will cause the least amount of disruption and create fewer distractions to keep you from the goal of becoming better prepared.
3. Make prepping a part of your daily plan. All of our daily routines involve a certain amount of planning. Without realizing it, we plan our normal daily activities to include a variety of simple tasks. Many of these simple tasks are often repeated and form the basis for the “comfort mode” in our lives. Think of prepping as just another routine task in your daily life.
There is a simple method to help you incorporate small changes into your lifestyle with a minimum amount of stress and will be covered in Part Three. This easy-to-use method will help you incorporate small changes into your daily routine that will help you become better prepared for what life may send your way.
Be aware. Be informed. Be prepared.
