Friends, Family… Meet Prepping

Friends, Family… Meet Prepping

If the rollercoaster year of 2020 taught us anything, it’s that people who prep aren’t as crazy as they’re made out to be. The idea of prepping is still easily misinterpreted though, and introducing it to your family and friends can be difficult. Talking to them about prepping needs to be done with care. Here’s how:

The first element to remember when introducing your family and friends to the world of prepping is to do so gradually. If you overwhelm them with ideas and facts about prepping, they’re less likely to take to the idea.

In the beginning, it’s probably best to avoid talking about national or global disasters such as nuclear warfare or an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Keep it at a local level; discuss current events and what could be done to prepare for disasters others are facing.

Explain to your family and friends why you prepare and why they should as well. 2020 gave plenty of examples as to why everyone should become a prepper: civil unrest, unstable world economies and a global pandemic.

Children should be involved with prepping as well. After all, they will benefit from learning survival skills as well. For help, check out our article on how you can teach your kids about survival.
