Gear is certainly helpful when it comes to preparedness. Gear is great, I love gear!
I also love skills, though. I always feel way more empowered when I learn a skill that I didn’t have before.
When I first learned how to use a flint and steel, I was ecstatic! I had a chip on my shoulder, even. Flint and steel is pretty intimidating. It’s hitting steel against rock to create sparks in order to light tinder to get a fire going. In the old days, they’d crack rock against rock which is about the same process, though steel creates a tad more sparks.
My point is, the more skills I learn, the more empowered I feel about my overall preparedness and survivability.
Oh and trust me, the more skills you learn, the more addicted to learning you’ll become. Gaining knowledge is the start, then actually physically putting that knowledge to the test is where it’s really at.
Here are 10 preparedness skills to learn today:
Cooking – I know, this doesn’t seem like a ‘preparedness’ skill, but with how often people have been ordering out during COVID-19 pandemic, and how many people have baked bread for the first time; it’s pretty clear cooking is certainly a skill that needs to be learned. One of the most often requests I get is to show how to cook with our food storage. My best suggestion is to find a base then find a recipe based off of that base. For instance, let’s say I have ground beef, what meal can I make with ground beef? Pasta with red sauce and meatballs with some canned veggies? Boom. Meal!
Exercise – Exercising is actually a skill that needs to be kept up with. Even if it’s something as simple as jogging/walking around inside of your home, something is better than nothing.
Making things from scratch – Like candles, your own healing salve, soap, bread, etc.
Sewing – Stitch up your clothing or gear by hand, it’s a very easy and effective skill to have around.
Maintenance – Home and vehicle maintenance are certainly skills and ones that I’m learning all the time. Learn how to use basic tools, make basic items, maintain basic things on your home and car.
