New preppers tend to get overwhelmed and discouraged. They set the bar too high and go to extremes instead of setting reasonable prepping priorities
New preppers tend to get either very overwhelmed, discouraged, or both. They set the bar too high and tend to go to the extremes instead of setting reasonable prepping priorities. Is a nuclear war possible? Yep. Is a solar flare taking out all electrical power on the planet possible? You bet! Are the chances of either of those greater than a bad storm taking the power out and flooding your town? Not likely.
To help battle the overwhelmed feeling of needing to get everything done all at once, it really helps to settle down and think more locally first. What types of threats are realistic in your area? Those are the ones you should start prepping for first! If you live in an area prone to getting flooded out, taking steps to protect yourself and home should be a priority. What about earthquakes? Do you have a plan to meet your family afterward? How about a stock of food that doesn’t need electricity to store or prepare?
Each family will have different needs and it’s up to YOU to decide what is realistic. To help further with that, click the link below and get a better perspective!
