Some Guidelines for a Hopeless Pessimist Anticipating for the Apocalypse
A certain percentage of pessimistic people, who believes that the Apocalypse is coming soon, are making preparations for it, and mind you, they would have the last laugh if this event would arrive.
For you to be ready when Apocalypse comes, you have to be thinking ahead now and planning things accordingly. There are things that would entail you to do to be the survivor when apocalypse comes, and we are presenting some of these here.
Before you start your preparation, the first thing you have to do is to have a plan for your survival. The apocalypse is seen by some people as a possible result of political unrest, threats from other countries, zombies and so on. The basis of your plan will depend on what you think is the most likely scenario, and thus you decide where to go, what things to bring, who will go with you or you go solo, and so forth. Involving people close to you in your plan would mean that they should be aware of your plans, get them involved so that everything is coordinated and they understand each other’s expectations.
Another important aspect of your planning for the apocalypse is to have on hand all supplies that are essential for your new existence. Note that life will not be easy after an apocalypse, like no hospitals, no electricity, nothing in the supermarket, and so on. Thus, essentials like food, gas, water, medical supplies and others should already be stocked up.
Not only will you prepare the essential supplies, your next tip to consider in an apocalypse is your appropriate gear. Remember that in most probability, electricity will be out, and so it is best to consider batteries, a generator, or torches at least and others so will have your fuel and energy sources. Other things could come in handy for your survival like matches, maps, ropes, axes and other tools.
Another matter of preparation is for you to master the art of independence, especially we are basically over-reliant on the present system in order to survive. This means you should learn to be better in looking after yourself, which means learning how to grow your own food, practice essential skills in an apocalypse situations like knot tying, fire lighting, self defense, hunting and so on.
Remember that in this time you will be living with nothing or very little, and this would need you to stay sane, have perseverance and mental battle to cope up without the luxuries you were used to before, like warm beds, enough food and nutrition, possibly no friends and families around.
