So, you think you’re prepared for anything, huh?

Prepping is an ongoing task. You don’t need to do something every single day, but some sort of task needs to be done at least once a month, if not once a week. Putting together a bug out bag and placing it in the closet and never looking at it again, isn’t the way to truly be prepared.

You don’t have to be hardcore to prep, but there are some general maintenance that needs to be done every once and a while. Prepping should always be top of mind in the sense that you should always want to strive to be the best prepared that you can possibly be for you and your household.

Again, prepping doesn’t have to be your whole life but it should just be apart of your life.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

When was the last time you went on a camping trip that tested the gear in your bug out bag?

When was the last time you searched for wild edibles?

When was the last time you ran a mock drill with your household?

When was the last time you tested any gear from your bug out bag or home supplies?

When was the last time you made a fire?

When was the last time you made a primitive fire?

When was the last time you updated your get home bag, bug out bag or EDC?

When was the last time you checked your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers?

When was the last time you went for a walk around the block to get to know your neighborhood?

When was the last time you navigated with a map and compass?

When was the last time you rotated your bugging in food and water supply?

When was the last time you inventoried all of your gear, kits, food and water?

When was the last time you checked your batteries for corrosion?

When was the last time you checked your first aid kits?

When was the last time you tried something new?

When was the last time you got out of your comfort zone?

When was the last time you checked your car kit(s)?

When was the last time you took a preparedness-related class?

When was the last time you read a preparedness-related book?

When was the last time you trained your survival mindset?

When was the last time you looked at your disaster plan(s)?

When was the last time you went for a hike with your bug out bag?

When was the last time you talked to your kids about preparedness?

When was the last time you looked at your defense plans?

When was the last time you practiced self-defense?

The list can go on and on.

We need to constantly be asking ourselves questions like the ones above to make sure that we’re on top of our game so that when a disaster or emergency strikes we’re not caught off guard and we know exactly what to do and how to do it.

An emergency or disaster is going to be stressful enough, let’s not make it even more stressful by thinking we’re prepared, when we’re maybe not as prepared as we thought we were.

Conquer tomorrow, by preparing today!
