When asked what the single most important item is for any prepper, many people think of expensive or irreplaceable tools. Guns, knives, and firestarters generally top the most frequently listed items.
However, the answer is much simpler than many might think. Here’s how you can keep your most important tool, yourself, in good condition.
As the video states, self-care is vital during stressful times such as a survival situation. You need to take care of yourself. The human body is essentially a machine that intakes food and water, turns them into energy. As with any machine, the human body needs to be regularly maintained to stay in tip-top shape and keep running smoothly.
If the human body is a machine, then the mind is the computer running it. This is precisely why you need to have “mental check-ins” with yourself to understand what kind of shape you’re in. Many of us live stressful lives with our responsibilities and duties. It’s important to make one’s mental health a priority, and to take time for rest and relaxation even in the most trying of times.
Exercise can help you both mentally and physically. Taking up a hobby that both stimulates the mind and works the body is a great way to stay mentally and physically healthy. Doing yoga, having meditation sessions, or even beginning a martial art are perfect ways to improve mental and physical wellbeing.
